Khmer Salmon Burgers with Cucumber

Khmer Salmon Burgers with Cucumber stand out as an easy, simple, and delicious dish, gaining popularity among young Cambodian people, especially children. This Cambodian food, crafted from fresh ground salmon, Italian breadcrumbs, minced small onion, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, black pepper, grated cheddar cheese, fresh parsley, old bay seasoning, and Parmesan cheese, reflects a blend of traditional flavors and contemporary appeal, making it a favorite among the younger generation.

The preparation of these salmon burgers involves combining all the ingredients in a large bowl until well combined and chilling the mixture in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Forming six large patties, the burgers are then coated or dusted with Parmesan cheese before frying, creating a golden brown exterior with a rich and flavorful crust. The option to bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 20 minutes is provided for those who prefer an alternative to frying.

In a hot non-stick fry pan, butter or olive oil is added, and each side of the salmon patty is fried for approximately 4 minutes until achieving a golden brown finish. For those who prefer a healthier cooking method, baking in the oven is suggested. The resulting Khmer Salmon Burgers can be served as a classic salmon burger or as salmon cakes, paired with lime juice and tartar sauce for added zest and freshness.

In conclusion, these Khmer Salmon Burgers with Cucumber offer a delightful combination of flavors and textures, showcasing the adaptability of traditional Cambodian ingredients in a modern and appealing dish.
