Feeds: 4 People
480g of Skinless, Boneless Salmon
2 Tablespoons of White Miso
1 Lime, Zest and Juice
2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
50g of Panko Breadcrumbs
1 Teaspoon of Salt
2 Garlic Cloves
2 Tablespoons of Sriracha
1 Teaspoon of Caster Sugar
3 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise
4 Brioche Buns
Knob of Ginger
Roughly chop the salmon fillets. Put half into a food processor and blitz to a paste. Add the miso, ginger, lime zest, the rest of the salmon and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Pulse very briefly until roughly combined. You want some nice chunky bits of salmon in with the paste rather than it all turned into mush.
Tip the mix into a bowl and stir through the panko breadcrumbs. Shape into four burgers and chill whilst you make the smacked cucumbers.
Now the fun part. Get a rolling pin or something heavy and hit the cucumber until it has collapsed and starts to break. Cut into random diagonal pieces. Place in a bowl and stir in the salt. Leave to sit for 10 minutes to draw out some of the water from the cucumber.
Dressing time. Grab a bowl. Crush in the garlic cloves and mix with 1 tbsp of Sriracha sauce, 1 tbsp of soy sauce, sugar and lime juice.
Mix the remaining Sriracha sauce with the mayonnaise.
Pour a drizzle of oil into a non-stick frying pan. Fry the salmon burgers for 3 minutes on each side.
Assemble time. Drain the water off the cucumbers and mix with the dressing. Cut the buns in half, (toast in the frying pan if you like), spread the bottom of each bun with the sriracha mayo. Top each with a salmon burger and pile on the smacked cucumber slaw. Drizzle over the dressing. Bam.
