Why Salmon For This Recipe And Learn About Our Salmon!
Just like other types of ground meat, salmon is terrific for turning into patties with a little help from eggs, panko breadcrumbs and a food processor.
Here at Sizzlefish, our wild Alaska king salmon contains the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids compared to other Alaskan species. Omega-3 fatty acids protect the heart, brain and blood vessels by reducing inflammation. You can also use our Atlantic salmon in this recipe. Atlantic salmon is raised in the remote waters of the Faroe Islands, between Iceland, Norway and Scotland without the use of antibiotics. The flavor is mild with a tender, flaky texture. Sizzlefish salmon arrive frozen and individually sealed in 4- or 6-ounce portions for easy thawing. Place salmon in the refrigerator overnight to thaw completely before cooking.
Benefits Of Wild-caught Salmon!
Wild-caught salmon refers to salmon that are caught in their natural habitat, such as rivers, lakes, and oceans, rather than being raised on fish farms. Wild-caught salmon are more environmentally sustainable, as well as having a different nutritional profile and taste compared to farmed salmon.
Wild-caught salmon feed on a variety of organisms, such as krill, shrimp, and small fish, which gives them a higher concentration of healthy omega-3 fatty acids compared to farmed salmon. Additionally, wild-caught salmon may contain lower levels of contaminants such as mercury, PCBs, and antibiotics.
However, because wild-caught salmon are caught in their natural habitat, their populations can be affected by overfishing, climate change, and habitat destruction. It's important to choose sustainably caught wild salmon to ensure the health of the fish populations and their natural habitats.
Why We Use Panko Breadcrumbs In This Recipe?
The salmon patties contain a mixture of eggs, panko breadcrumbs and herbs like dill, garlic and lemon. Panko breadcrumbs are a type of breadcrumb that originates from Japan. They are made from bread that has been processed into flakes rather than the fine crumbs of traditional breadcrumbs. This processing gives panko breadcrumbs a course, flakier texture, which creates a crispy and crunchy coating when used in cooking. You’ll often find panko breadcrumbs in recipes for meatballs and for coating shrimp and fish. Feel free to use traditional breadcrumbs as a substitute.
What Is Herb Aioli And How Do You Make It?
An herb aioli is smeared onto each slider bun before placing on the salmon patties. Aioli is a fancy name for a flavored mayonnaise. The basic ingredients of aioli are garlic, olive oil, and egg yolks, but there are many variations of the recipe that may include additional ingredients, such as lemon juice, Dijon mustard, or herbs like parsley or basil. The garlic is typically mashed into a paste with a mortar and pestle, then whisked together with the egg yolks and slowly drizzled with olive oil while whisking vigorously to create an emulsion. The result is a thick, creamy sauce with a bold garlic flavor.
We added chives and freshly cracked pepper to add flavor that delights the taste buds and compliments the salmon. Aioli can be used as a dipping sauce for vegetables, seafood, or bread, or as a condiment for sandwiches, burgers, or grilled meats. It can also be used as a flavoring for dressings, marinades, or pasta sauces.
