Salmon Burgers with Green Bean Slaw

Salmon Burgers with Green Bean Slaw

Salmon burgers usually have an asian flair to them at least when I have seen them out at restaurants, but I was more in the mood for very simple flavors that really felt like spring and showcased the fresh salmon. I grabbed some vibrant green beans and ramps at the store and put together a quick slaw with a mustard vinaigrette as a topping for these burgers. Some hard boiled eggs and nice whole grain rolls pulled everything together. Some of you are probably grilling this weekend, and I highly suggest trying out these burgers as something different for a small get together.

When I get Korean food in my head it becomes like that annoying song that just won’t leave your brain until you hear it. We leave Cooking Channel on in the background at my job and they have a new Korean food show, so I am probably going to be craving these flavors a lot more often! I saw some Japche noodles on tv while I was at work the other day, and immediately made them when I got home. I wanted to use all the veggies I had on hand instead of buying a ton of stuff, so I got the noodles and headed home hoping there would be some good stuff in the fridge. I had this delicious Jones Dairy Farm sausage and some great veggies that made for a fun twist on the traditional noodle dish.

When I was frying some tofu one day, I noticed that it sticks together really easily. As the tofu cooks, it basically binds to any other tofu cooking nearby. This gave me the idea to one day stuff cubes of tofu, considering that whatever the stuffing may be, the tofu would hold it in nicely. When “one day” finally came, I made a vaguely Asian turkey meatball mixture to stuff into the little cubes.
