These burgers are full of delicious salmon flavor and get a boost from a crunchy, savory slaw. You can serve the burgers in your favorite hamburger rolls or just on their own. The slaw will absorb the flavors of the dressing as it sits, so taste it just before serving and add a little salt and pepper or a tablespoon more dressing if you think it needs it.

1 1/2 pound salmon fillet, skin removed
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 small red onion, diced, divided
1/4 cup dried whole wheat bread crumbs
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 cups very thinly sliced red cabbage
1 carrot, shredded
1 small zucchini, shredded
1/3 cup blue cheese dressing
Combine cabbage, carrot, zucchini, abot half of the onion and dressing in a medium bowl and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Cut salmon fillet in large chunks and place in a food processor along with salt and pepper and remaining onion. Pulse until salmon is just finely chopped. Transfer salmon mixture to a bowl and gently stir in bread crumbs. Form mixture into 4 patties. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook burgers, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Top burgers with a dollop of slaw and serve with remaining slaw on the side.
