Quick And Easy Salmon Burgers

In the warm weather it's so much easier to make meals on the grill.  You don't need to limit yourself to standard beef burgers - there are so many more options (as you can see from my blog posts).  

I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try (recipe adapted from http://thinkhom.com/salmon-burger-avocado-salsa/).  I wanted to find a healthier burger to include in my family's summer meal rotation.  My hubby really enjoyed them which was a relief since he can use a break from his usual red meat burgers

I made this recipe even easier by using a food processor to mix the ingredients.  Make sure to only pulse the ingredients a few times (5-7 short intervals) until just combined.

You can either form the patties by hand or use The Burger Master to make eight quarter pound patties.  After filling the Burger Master I placed the container in the freezer for a couple of hours to make the patties easier to handle.
