Salmon Burgers

2 lbs boneless skinless salmon fillet
1 1/2 c fine breadcrumbs
4 shallots, finely chopped
1/2 lb bacon, cooked to crispy & crumbled
3/4 c fresh parsley, finely chopped
3 Tbsp maple syrup
Zest of 2 lemons

Cut salmon into 1" cubes. Pulse in food processor until coarsely chopped. Transfer to bowl, and mix salmon with remaining ingredients. Form into 8-10 patties, about 3/4" thick. Grill over medium heat, about 5-6 mins per side. Serve on fresh buns with mayo & dill.

These also freeze very well, and cook well from frozen!

Our favourite condiment on these is a spicy tartar sauce - we mix together mayo, green relish and as much sambal oelek (chile paste) as we can stand.
