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.
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.
Salmon has been a staple of Northwest cuisine throughout known history, as have blueberries, both wild and cultivated.
