Any ideas on how to jazz up Costco salmon burgers?

Got the big bag of costco samon burgers last week. Was planning to grill them but the weather turned bitter here in Pa. so I just baked up a few. People ate them, and said they would gradually help me finish the bag but I was told not to buy any more of them. I think I haven't given the burgers a fair chance. Maybe if the weather lightens up I will try them with lemon pepper sauce on the grill or something. I'm somewhat of a noob at cooking seafood at home anyway, so any ideas would rock!

  1. We love Costco's salmon burgers. If you like, season with Old Bay seasoning, or just salt and fresh cracked black pepper, a teriyaki glaze, or nothing at all. Broil them or cook them in a hot skillet, just don't over cook them. Use high heat to slightly brown the outside while the inside is still moist.. Serve on a lightly toasted bun with leaf lettuce, tomato, sweet onion and mayo, or tartar sauce, or horseradish/mayo sauce or nothing. Keep trying at least until the bag runs out.

    1. Ditto the teriyaki. I'm partial to Soy Vey or Trader Joe's version of it. Also Trader Joe's wasabi mayo has a nice kick.

      1. This is really more suited to the Home Cooking board, I think. You might get more replies if you repost it there.

        1. Brush some Terriyaki sauce or sprinkle some paprika or Old Bay will make them less bland.

            Call me fussy, but I think Teriyaki Sauce just has no place with salmon. The flavours would certainly clash...

          2. I think it is unanimous - the answer it teriyaki. I make salmon burgers all the time on my grill pan and then slather on any kind of teriyaki sauce. Great result for the effort. Even better with a slice of grilled pineapple.
