Ingredients

  • 2 large potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 cans salmon drained
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 4 whole grain hamburger buns
  • 4 leaves leaf lettuce
Sweet-and-Sour Cucumber:
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar

Method

Sweet-and-Sour Cucumber: In bowl, combine cucumber, onion, vinegar and sugar; let stand for 30 minutes. Drain off liquid. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)

Meanwhile, peel and cut potatoes into chunks. In saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to pot; mash until smooth. Transfer to bowl.

Stir in dill, mustard, salt, lemon rind, pepper and egg. With fingers, break salmon into pieces about size of rolled oats, removing any bones. Stir into potato mixture. Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. Spread bread crumbs on plate; press patties into crumbs to coat both sides. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place patties on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until heated through and golden, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut buns in half; toast on grill for 2 minutes. Sandwich lettuce, salmon patty and cucumber in bun.
