Super Bowl or Super Tuesday Party? Serve Salmon Burgers

If you're hosting a party for the Super Bowl (or Super Tuesday), we suggest serving up salmon burgers. They're a little unexpected, but total finger food -- and best of all, they come together in less than 20 minutes.

Hosts could dress these burgers up for a dinner party by serving them without the bun.

Or, for silver platter worthy appetizers, serve make mini salmon burgers on brioche rolls with a drizzle of wassabi mixed into yogurt or mayo.

Everyday Food's Salmon Burgers with Yogurt Dill Sauce
Serves 4

1 pound skinless salmon fillet, finely diced
1 tablespoon prepared white horseradish
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 large egg, beaten
3 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons plain breadcrumbs
1/2 cup plain, low-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
4 whole wheat hamburger buns
romaine lettuce

To finely dice the salmon without crushing it, start by thinly slicing the fillet with a sharp knife. Cut the slices into lengthwise into strips, then crosswise.

Heat broiler with rack set 4 inches from the heat. In a medium bowl, combine salmon, horseradish, lemon zest and juice, egg, scallion, breadcrumbs, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Mix gently with a fork.

Using your hands, form the salmon into four patties. Broil on a rimmed baking sheet until browned on top and opaque throughout 6 to 7 minutes.

While burgers broil, combine yogurt and dill in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve burgers on buns with yogurt-dill sauce and lettuce.
