green goddess sauce

  • Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until combined.

  • Add the salmon filet (I cut mine into 4 pieces) to the food processor. Pulse until it is in small pieces but not completely ground up. Remove the salmon and put it in a large bowl. Add the shallot, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, paprika, salt and pepper, basil and parsley to the bowl. Stir with a large spoon to combine then bring the mixture together with your hands. Form the mixture into 4 burgers or 8 sliders that are slightly less than 1 inch in diameter – or however many you want so they fit the size of your buns!
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the burgers (I do it in two batches) and cook on both sides until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. You want the insides of the burger to be opaque, so I usually turn the heat down to low and cover the skillet for another minute or two to ensure that they are cooked.
  • To assemble the burgers, add the greens on the bottom of the bun. Place the burger on top, followed by the avocado and green goddess sauce. Serve immediately!
