To make burgers, in a large bowl, combine salmon, garlic, mustard, tarragon, hoisin sauce, cayenne pepper, egg and bread crumbs and gently knead until well combined. Form mixture into 6 equal patties. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 1 day.

To make ketchup, grind sesame seeds in a spice grinder. In a bowl, whisk together miso, mirin, soy sauce and ground sesame seeds until well blended. Set aside. (Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Remove salmon burgers from the refrigerator. Lightly coat burgers on both sides with spray oil. Grill burgers for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip and grill for 2 to 3 minutes more. Flip burgers again and grill until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes more. Serve on whole grain buns with miso ketchup.
