Karen’s “Keep-it-Moist” Salmon-Burger Solution; Pasta Jitomate de Salmon
This week we feature a recipe for canned Sockeye salmon, and a way to cook our Sockeye Salmon Burgers to perfection.
We know that that keeping our Sockeye Salmon Burgers fully moist can be a challenge, because Sockeye is relatively low in fat, hence easy to overcook… especially when it comes in burger form.
We hope that this approach, provided by Karen Long of our terrific Customer Service team, will serve as one good solution.
Karen’s “Keep-it-Moist” Salmon-Burger Solution
This method uses frozen burgers, and the optional seasonings will produce patties with an Asian accent. As Karen says, “These patties are best cooked quickly as Sockeye is so very lean, and will toughen if overcooked. You will find the results to be tender, moist, and tasty.”
Of course, you can skip the sesame oil, soy sauce, and seasonings if you prefer to let the natural flavor of the salmon shine through.
