A refreshing alternative to beef burgers, this salmon version is flavoured with tangy lemon juice and grainy mustard. For an even lighter dish, replace the sour cream with Greek yogurt.

MethodCombine sour cream, half of the dill and half of the mustard; set aside.
Cut salmon into chunks. In food processor, pulse together salmon, remaining mustard, lemon zest, 2 tbsp of the lemon juice, capers and half each of the salt and pepper until coarsely combined. Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties.
Place patties on greased grill pan or in skillet over medium heat; cook, turning once, until grill-marked and instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into centre registers 158ºF (70ºC), about 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, brush insides of buns with 1 tbsp of the oil. Add to grill, cut sides down; grill until slightly crisp, about 3 minutes.
In large bowl, whisk together remaining oil, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper; add cucumber and toss to coat.
Spoon 1 tbsp of the sour cream mixture over bottom half of each bun. Top each with patty, 1 tbsp of the sour cream mixture and one-quarter of the avocado slices; sandwich with top bun. Serve with cucumber mixture.
