    We saw a recipe for “no knead bread” on America’s Test Kitchen and it looked so good! We went on the Web to find the recipe and would not allow to access unless a member! Sooo, ltried ask.com and came up with your Web. WOW! I immediately added to my FAVORITES! Fantastic! Plus I have been making Salmon Burgers for a few years and yours is Exactly Mine! I know you are GOOD! Thank You! Don

    Wouldn’t the salmon burgers have fish bones in them?

    These salmon burgers look really good. I hope I get a chance to make them this weekend.

    I made these last night and they were perfect! I used the salmon my husband caught here in Alaska. He pulled the pin bones out with pliers and I skinned it. Make sure you freeze your meat first to kill parasites if it’s fresh. I didn’t have hoisin sauce so I made my own concoction. Next time I will have to try it. I also only had shallots instead of onion, and home made bread crumbs, but they still worked great. I also mixed sesame seeds into the bread crumbs in the shallow pan. I topped my burgers with miso cole slaw and I made wasabi mayo. Excellent flavor combo. Thanks for the perfect recipe, I have tons of salmon and will be making this again and again.
