Salmon Sliders with Creamy Cucumber Salad

Salmon Sliders, packed with dill, dill relish, lemony zest, and chunks of salmon are easy and delicious. Serve them with your favorite fixins, but they are awesome with Granny's Cucumber Salad with Cream Cheese!

Ingredients
  • 1 lb salmon
  • 2 scallions, green and white parts
  • 1 t dill
  • 1 T dill relish (I try not to get too much juice in the tablespoon because I like the chunks)
  • 2 T mayo
  • 1 t lemon zest
  • 2 t lemon juice
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 scant t pepper
  • 1/4 c panko breadcrumbs (I use the seasoned kind)
Instructions
  1. Divide salmon in half. Chop one half into bite sized pieces and set aside in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Chop the other half of the salmon into a few pieces that will fit into your food processor. Put them in the food processor with the scallions, dill, dill relish, mayo, lemon zest and juice, salt, and pepper. Pulse the food processor until you have a thick paste. Adjust seasonings.

  3. Remove everything from the food processor and add it to the mixing bowl with the little pieces of chopped fish. Add the bread crumbs and mix everything well.

  4. Form the salmon mixture into patties. I suggest making each patty out of about a quarter cup of the mixture, which should give you about 6 sliders. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate until they are a little bit firm. A half an hour usually works.  

  5. Whether cooking in a skillet or on the grill, they should be ready after about 4 minutes on each side on medium-high heat.

    I also love them with caramelized red onions like the ones on these hot dogs:
