Will they eat it: Thai salmon burger sliders
Posted by andrea tomkins in: Recipes and Food
Remember my splendid dinner failure the other night? This redeemed it.
This is one of the recipes I made with a group of ladies during an organized co-op kitchen cooking night last week. It’s something I have participated in a few times. Basically, someone picks three dinner recipes, buys the ingredients, and then we all show up in her church kitchen to cook it all up. It’s pretty fun, but the entire time we were cooking and chopping I was thinking good lord I hope the kids will eat this. It has the word THAI and SALMON in the title. Double bad.
Anyway, I tricked my kids into trying this by turning burgers into wee sliders. Who can resist tiny ciabatta buns? Surprise, surprise, they ate them all up.
Thai Salmon Burger Slider recipe (makes 8-10)
4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets, about 550g/1lb 4oz in total, cut into chunks
2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
thumb-size piece fresh root ginger, grated
1 tsp soy sauce
1 bunch coriander, chopped
oil for frying
ciabatta slider buns
burger fixin’s (e.g. lettuce and mayo)
Toss the salmon into a food processor along with the curry paste, ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until roughly minced. Shape into small burger patties.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the burgers for 3-4 minutes on each side, turning until browned and cooked through.
We served the sliders on the bun (as pictured) with lettuce and a swipe of mayonnaise, along with a cucumber salad and oven fries.
This one is a keeper for sure!
Edited to add: I will be eventually be taking the Will They Eat it series over to my new residence at recipes.ca once it’s up and running. If you want to be notified of our launch date, please follow us on twitter at @recipesdotca or Facebook!
