> 1 (1.5 lb) pkg salmon 
> 2 tsp Dijon mustard
> 1 red onion
> ½ cup bread crumbs
> 2 tbsp olive oil
> ¼ cup light mayonnaise
> 1 tsp lemon juice
> 1 tbsp sweet relish
> 4 hamburger buns
> 1 tomato
> 1 head Boston lettuce


Set the salmon on a cutting board, skin-side-up. Use a sharp knife to edge in between the skin and flesh, peeling the skin away with your other hand.
Cut the salmon into ½-inch chunks. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the mustard and one-third of the salmon. Whiz together until fish becomes pasty.
Meanwhile, dice half the onion and cut the other half into rings. Add the remaining salmon chunks and diced red onion to the food processor. Pulse just enough to combine. Use a spatula to scrape salmon mixture into a bowl and stir in the breadcrumbs. Form into 4 patties.
Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet and cook patties for 10 min., flipping halfway through.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and sweet relish to make tartar sauce. Arrange the burgers on buns with onion, sliced tomato, and lettuce. Top with tartar sauce.


We’ve kept things simple here, but feel free to add in capers, chives, or diced jalapeno.
