Salmon Burger Toppings

What can I do with the salmon burger toppings? A Mexican burger needs flavorful toppings. A salmon burger recipe needs burger toppings that will complement the Latin flavors. A Mexican slaw recipe is what I came up with for this salmon burger toppings!

I saw the inspiration on Pinterest for a Mexican slaw recipe. I felt this Mexican burger would really do well with a law recipe as the toppings!

Gourmet Burger Recipe

How did I incorporate the other ingredients of corn, Tomatillos, and Old Bay Seasoning into this gourmet burger recipe? The rules are to incorporate each ingredient into our homemade burger recipes. The gourmet burger can use any version of those ingredients.

 

For the corn, I used cornmeal. You need a binder to help keep the salmon burger recipe together. I also diced up the Tomatillos and added them to the homemade burger recipe.

Latin Flavor

Using the secret ingredients in this Mexican salmon recipe gave this fish burger that Latin flavor I was after. What really makes this gourmet burger awesome has to be the salmon burger toppings, that Mexican slaw recipe on the top.

 

I will let you in on a small secret on that salmon burger topping, the Black Sesame Seed in the slaw, was an accident. I grabbed the wrong ingredient when I was making the Mexican slaw recipe.

 

I just decided let’s see what happens. Honestly, this slaw tasted good with it! So I kept the black sesame seeds in the slaw recipe!
