Cedar Planked Salmon Burger – Healthier eating made deliciously easy with cedar plank smoked salmon on D’Italiano Herb & Garlic Hamburger Buns.
Anyone who reads this blog regularly will know that I am a sucker for anything smoked. My backyard smoker gets plenty of use during the summer.
You don’t need a smoker though to get great flavour from the backyard grill. In recent years, with fish especially, I’ve used the west coast tradition of cooking on cedar planks. This works incredibly well with smoked fish like salmon.
Salmon is Spouse’s favourite seafood, so this sandwich was eagerly anticipated by her for dinner on the day we made them. I think this recipe would work equally well with another fish that I like to smoke, halibut. Halibut also has a firm meaty texture that would lend itself well to this recipe.
The smoked paprika and lime mayo that accompanies the sandwich really sets off the flavour beautifully. The bright flavour of the lime and extra smokiness of the paprika really do compliment the salmon well.
