A Twist On Traditional Burgers

August 3, 2023

As the weather continues to rise, it's time to dust off the grill and indulge in one of summer's favorite dishes: burgers. While the thought of a classic Beef patty may come to mind, there are exciting alternatives that offer both nutrition and flavor. So, why not try a twist on traditional burgers?

One option that stands out is salmon, a protein-packed, nutritionally well-rounded alternative. Not only does Salmon offer a variety of health benefits, but it also provides a unique and delicious flavor to your burger. To make things even better, Trident Seafoods Alaska Salmon Burgers are a gluten-free choice made with wild, sustainable, ocean-caught whole fillets, free from any fillers. These burgers are lightly seasoned, delivering a "just-off-the-grill" smoky flavor that will leave you craving for more.

To create a truly mouthwatering twist on the traditional burger, let's explore the recipe for Alaskan Salmon Burgers with Peppered Bacon:

Preparation time: 13 minutes
Servings: 4

• 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
• 1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice
• 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest
• Salt
• Pepper
• 1 box (11.2 ounces) of Trident Seafoods Alaska Salmon Burgers
• 4 slices of cheddar cheese
• 4 seeded burger buns, split and toasted
• 4 cups of arugula
• 6 strips of peppered bacon, cooked
• 12 bread-and-butter pickles, drained

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to your taste. Set it aside for later use.

Cook the Trident Seafoods Alaska Salmon Burgers following the directions on the package. When the burgers are almost cooked through, place a slice of cheddar cheese on top of each burger. Cover the grill and continue cooking until the cheese has melted to perfection.

While the burgers are cooking, spread the cut sides of the burger buns with the mayonnaise mixture you prepared earlier. This will add a zesty touch to your burgers.

Once the buns are prepared, it's time to assemble the burgers. Start by placing a generous amount of fresh arugula on the bottom bun, creating a bed of greens.
Carefully place the cooked Salmon burger on top of the arugula, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Now, it's time to add a smoky and savory touch to the burger. Place three strips of cooked peppered bacon on each burger, adding a burst of flavor and texture.
For an additional tangy kick, add a few bread-and-butter pickles on top of the bacon. These pickles will complement the flavors and provide a satisfying crunch.
Finally, top the burger with the other half of the bun, completing the ensemble.

Voila! You've successfully created a twist on traditional burgers with the Alaskan Salmon Burgers with Peppered Bacon. The combination of the salmon's smoky flavor, the richness of melted cheddar cheese, the freshness of arugula, the savory bacon, and the tangy pickles will take your taste buds on a delightful journey. These burgers are not only bursting with flavor but also offer a healthier alternative that is both gluten-free and packed with essential nutrients.

So, this summer, step out of your comfort zone and embrace a new take on the classic burger. Incorporating salmon into your grilling repertoire will bring a delightful change to your meals.
