Double Decker Salmon Dijon Burger

Twice As Nice
It's hard to believe that this gourmet burger is mainly composed of pantry ingredients that you already have on hand. The salmon is from a pouch (or can) but once you taste the burger, you will completely forget the swap. This dish was adapted from an Eating Well recipe for salmon cakes. I altered it to be gluten free and put a little more emphasis on the best condiment ever-- Dijon Mustard.

Double Decker Salmon Dijon Burger
Gluten Free
Serves Two

1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup fennel, chopped
1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
6 oz. pouch boneless, skinless salmon
2 tbsp. egg substitute
3 tsp. Dijon Mustard, divided
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. fresh gluten free breadcrumbs
2 tsp. capers, chopped
6-8 cremini or button mushrooms, thickly sliced
2 light gluten free hamburger buns
zero calorie butter spray
salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

2. Spray a medium nonstick skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add fennel and garlic; cook, stirring, until fennel is softened (about 3 minutes). Stir in parsley; remove from heat.

3. Place salmon in a medium bowl and flake with a fork (check to make sure there are no skin or bones). Add egg beaters and 2 tsp. of Dijon. Mix well.

4. Add the fennel mixture, breadcrumbs, capers, salt and pepper; mix well.

5. Respray medium skillet and heat over medium heat.

6. Shape the mixture into four patties, about 2.5 inches wide, and place in skillet. (They will be fragile).

7. Cook until the undersides of patties are golden, 2-3 minutes. Using a wide spatula turn the patties over on baking sheet.

8. Spread mushroom slices in an even layer around patties.

9. Bake the salmon patties until firm and heated through, 10-13 minutes.

10. Remove baking sheet from oven and transfer mushrooms to a small bowl. Stir in remaining 1 tsp. of Dijon. Mix until mushrooms are thoroughly coated.

11. Toast hamburger buns. Spritz with zero calorie butter spray.

12. To assemble burgers, place one patty on bottom half of toasted bun. Top with half of mushroom mixture. Place a second patty on top so mushrooms are sandwiched between two patties. Finish with top half of bun. Repeat process with remaining ingredients to form second burger.
