The Brain Dead Oven – SALMON PATTIES OF AWESOMNESS

7

Hello there.  My name is Rob.  I run this place.  I like to eat.  I’m assuming you like to eat as well.  Let’s eat together.  Ok, maybe not together, but let me share a killer recipe that always bring the boys to the yard.  Well not so much the yard, and there really aren’t boys…I need a drink.

 

Ingredients:

Spicy Sriracha Mayo (optional but SO GOOOOD) 

  • 3/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 minced scallion
  • as much Sriracha as you like

Salmon Patties

  • 1 1/4 pound  salmon fillet, skin and bones removed
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • cayenne pepper (as much/little as you’d like)
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 chopped scallions
  • 1 2/3 cup panko
  • salt/pepper
  • olive oil
  • buns
  • arugula for topping

 

Spicy Sriracha Mayo:

  1. Take all of the ingredients and pulse for a few seconds in a food processor.  Transfer to fridge.  SIMPLE!
 Salmon Patties:
  1. Cut three-quarters of the salmon into around 1/4-inch pieces.  Place in large bowl.
  2. Cut the rest of the salmon into chunks and place into a food processor along with the mustard, mayo, lemon juice, scallions, Old Bay and cayenne.  Pulse to create a paste.
  3. Add the salmon mixture to the pieces of salmon in the large bowl from step 1.  Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of panko, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste.  Mix gently until combined.
  4. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and brush slightly with olive oil.  Form patties with hands and place on to the parchment paper.

    mmmms.

    Cover with plastic wrap loosely and place in the fridge for a minimum of 30 mins.

  5. Preheat the broiler.  Take the remaining panko and spread on a plate.  Feel free to add more if need be.  Press both sides of the salmon patty in the panko.  Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat.  Add the patties and cook until browned on the bottom, around 3 – 4 minutes, adjusting the heat if needed.  Turn and cook until the other side has browned around 2-4 minutes.

    Fryin' it up.

  6. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain; season with salt.
  7. Place buns upside down on a broiler pan and broil until toasted.

    I spread it thick all over.

  8. Serve the patties on the buns; top with spicy sriracha mayo and arugula and enjoy with a nice cool beer.

    SOOOO GOOOODDDDMANNNN
