    1 pound salmon fillet, skin removed, fish cut into 1-inch chunks
    2 teaspoons plus 1⁄4 cup
    reduced-fat sour cream
    1 1⁄2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1⁄4 teaspoon salt
    freshly ground black pepper
    1 (8-ounce) head romaine, shredded (4 cups)
    1 medium avocado, cubed
    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
    1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne


In a food processor, combine salmon, 2 teaspoons of the sour cream, mustard, chili powder, cumin, 1⁄8 teaspoon of the salt, and 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper; pulse just until mixture comes together, 15 to 20 seconds. Form mixture into 4 patties, about 3⁄4 inch thick.

Lightly coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Grill patties until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

While patties are cooking, in a large bowl combine lettuce, avocado, oil,
1 teaspoon of the lime juice, and remaining 1⁄8 teaspoon salt. Season with black pepper to taste.

In a small bowl, whisk together remaining 1⁄4 cup sour cream, remaining 1 teaspoon lime juice, cilantro, and cayenne.

Divide salad among 4 plates and place a burger alongside. Top each burger with a dollop of cilantro sour cream and serve.
