We are displaced Seattle persons, living in Texas. While in the Northwest we enjoyed the fresh wild-caught salmon.
I enjoy grilling outside and trying different combinations. I was doing kabobs one day and thought this would be good a good hamburger. So we tried it and liked it. I hope you enjoy it also.
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.
It is a great privilege to live on the Chesapeake Bay. We watch the watermen at work every day; in rain, shine or Nor'easter.
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.
Salmon has been a staple of Northwest cuisine throughout known history, as have blueberries, both wild and cultivated.
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.
The Pacific Northwest is known for its fresh, flavorful salmon and delicious berries. I have always enjoyed blueberries, and thought that they would complement the mild salmon flavor.
