Ingredients

  1. Check 1/4cup rice vinegar
  2. Check 1tablespoon sugar
  3. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  4. Check 1 Kirby cucumber, very thinly sliced
  5. Check 1/4 sweet or white onion, thinly sliced
  6. Check 1 1/4pounds skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch pieces
  7. Check 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  8. Check 4 hamburger buns

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar, and ¼ teaspoon salt, stirring until the sugar and salt are dissolved.
  2. Add the cucumber and onion; toss to combine. Let sit, tossing occasionally, for at least 15 minutes and up to 6 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse the salmon 3 or 4 times, just until coarsely chopped (still somewhat chunky).
  4. Add the scallions, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and pulse to combine. Form the mixture into ¾-inch-thick patties.
  5. Oil the grill grate. Grill the patties, turning once (do not press or flatten), until opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes per side.
  6. Place the burgers on the buns and top with the pickled cucumbers and onions.
