One of the things I've liked best about this contest is how it's made me try new things. I love fish, but I'd never had a salmon burger until tonight. To me, salmon burger=old, fishy, dried out salmon with too much breadcrumb and tartar sauce, so I'be been avoiding making this.
Today after work I stopped and bought a nice fresh piece of salmon to make this recipe. It was truly delicious. The salmon burger stayed moist and juicy thanks to the mixed in aioli (and I pulled it a couple minutes earlier than called for). The brioche burger bun added an incredible buttery flavor. I liked this "fishcake" much better than crabcakes, which can be overly rich. This recipe is going into my permanent rotation.
