weeknight dinner | salmon burger

When I was a little girl we went to Canada and had the most amazing salmon burger.  The salmon was tender and delicious, the dill sauce on top was creamy and a little zingy, and best of all, it was served on warm Indian fry bread.  

I've spent years trying to recreate that burger.  This one comes pretty close.  But nothing beats sitting on a boardwalk in the summer with a warm salmon burger wrapped in wax paper.  

 

1.5 lb salmon

1 cup plain greek yogurt

1 tbs dried dill

1 lemon

1 cucumber, thinly sliced

1 tbs sugar

1 tsp salt

¼ cup rice vinegar

4 slices Indian Fry Bread or pita bread

 

          

 

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Squeeze half of the lemon over the top of the salmon.  Season with salt and pepper and pop in the oven. 

 

STEP 2

In a bowl, top the thinly sliced cucumber with the sugar, salt, and rice vinegar.  Mix and set aside.

 

STEP 3

Whisk together Greek yogurt, dill, the zest of one lemon and the juice of ½ a lemon.  Season with salt and pepper.

 

STEP 4

Serve salmon on flat bread slathered with yogurt sauce.  Serve cucumber slices alongside.
