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.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 3 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 1 lb salmon fillet skinned
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ciabatta buns
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cucumber chopped
  • 1 avocado pitted, peeled and sliced

Method

Combine 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.
