Healthy and delicious!
- 1/4 cup cilantro
- 3 scallions
- 8 ounces purple cabbage (shredded, 1 bag)
- 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries (thawed and drained)
- 1/2 lime (juice only)
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless salmon fillets
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
- 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 slider buns (toasted if desired)
- Finely chop the cilantro. Mince the scallions. Place the purple cabbage and wild blueberries in a large mixing bowl. Add the cilantro and half the minced scallions. Squeeze the juice from half a lime into the bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of honey, the red wine vinegar, and a scant 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Toss the slaw with a rubber spatula to thoroughly combine. Add an additional teaspoon of honey and more salt, if needed. Allow the slaw to sit at room temperature while you prepare the salmon sliders.
- Place the salmon in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the fish 15-20 times, until the texture resembles tapioca. Take care not to over-process into a paste.
- Transfer the salmon to a large mixing bowl. Add the reserved scallion, salt, black pepper, lime zest, and panko breadcrumbs. Fold with a rubber spatula until the mixture holds together. Shape the salmon mixture into 8 patties, roughly 3.5” in diameter and 1/2” thick.
- Set a skillet over medium-high heat and add half the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, place 4 of the salmon patties into the skillet. Sear the patties for 3-4 minutes on each side, moving them as little as possible, until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the patties to a paper towel-lined dinner plate. Repeat with the remaining 4 patties.
- To assemble the sliders, place a salmon patty on the bottom half of a bun. Top with 2-3 Tablespoons of blueberry slaw. Place the top half of the bun over the slaw. Serve immediately.
