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.
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.
