Salmon burger with dill yogurt sauce

I have a thing for burgers. My choice usually goes for a ground beef patty, grilled to medium, and topped with an array of garnishes that can sometimes defy explanation. Sometimes, I feel like going in another direction and make my burger with seafood or just veggies.
One of my favorite burgers is the salmon burger. Often made from off cuts of fresh salmon fillets and mixed with a little lemon and fresh herbs, then served simply with a green leaf salad and a simple yogurt dressing.

Ingredients (serves 4):
4 buns split and toasted
1 pound skinless salmon fillet, finely diced (use a sharp knife so you don’t crush the pieces)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
4 buns, split and toasted

Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a medium bowl, combine salmon, lemon juice, salt and pepper; mix gently.

Form salmon mixture into 4, 3 1/2-by-1 inch patties; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil, without turning, until browned on top and opaque throughout, 6-7 minutes. Meanwhile, combine yogurt and dill in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Serve burgers on buns with yogurt-dill sauce and lettuce.

Hamburger au saumon

Couper en tartare très fine la chair de saumon. Assaisonner avec du sel, du poivre et de jus de ci. Diviser par 4 et former des burgers. Chauffer une poêle anti-adhérente ou en inox en huilant légèrement et faire cuire les burgers.

Pendant ce temps préparer la sauce. Mélanger le fromage blanc avec l'aneth. Saler, poivrer.
