1 ½ pounds salmon, bones and skin removed, meat cut into ½ inch cubes

Zest and juice of 1 lime

3 tablespoons bread crumbs or 2 tablespoons coconut flour

Olive oil for cooking burgers

1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning if needed to taste.

2. Combine zucchini, scallion, garlic, salt, tamari, and ginger in food processor and process until finely ground. Add salmon, lime juice, lime zest, and coconut flour and pulse until salmon is incorporated, but not fully ground. It should be slightly chunky, but able to form patties. Form 6 large burgers or 12 sliders.

3. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet and cook burgers 3-4 minutes each side for larger patties or 2-3 minutes for sliders, until fish is fully cooked through.
