The Northwest coast makes up part of the Pacific Rim so we therefore have many Asian influences that have become part of our culture now.
I love the Pacific Northwest so I decided to create a burger that uses a lot of the great ingredients that the region has to offer. I use some cedar planks to smoke the rosemary-scented salmon.
My recipe includes two things that Washington State is known for - salmon and apples.
I created this recipe after having a salmon club sandwich at a restaurant. I loved the combination of salmon and bacon and thought it would make a delicious combination for a burger.
We are displaced Seattle persons, living in Texas. While in the Northwest we enjoyed the fresh wild-caught salmon.
