Salmon Sliders with Creamy Avocado Sauce

This is a great alternative to the typical burger. I made these for a lunch with +Aaron's family and they were a big hit! I served them with my Sriacha, Cilantro & Lime Grilled Corn and a grilled peach, goat cheese & hazlenut salad... HOLY YUM! This was a perfect dish to share with a larger group of people. I prepped everything that morning and let it sit in the fridge until we were ready to eat... assembling these bad boys is the fun part!


Creamy Avocado Sauce

1 ripe Avocado, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1 tbs Milk
1 1/2 tsp Distilled White Vinegar
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste

Salmon Sliders

1 lb Fresh Salmon Filet, skin removed, and thinly sliced
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, sliced

1/2 Yellow Bell Pepper, sliced
1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste
1 egg

12 Savory Butter King's Hawaiian Rolls
Additional sliced avocados, for garnish


For the Avocado Sauce

In a medium sized bowl, mash the avocado.
Stir in mayonnaise, sour cream, milk and vinegar until smooth. Add salt and pepper and stir until incorporated. Refrigerate.

For the sliders:

Place sliced salmon and bell peppers into a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles a paste.

Remove mixture and place in a medium bowl. Add Panko bread crumbs, salt, pepper and egg and mix until well incorporated. If mixture is not holding together, add additional Panko bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Shape salmon mixture into 12, small patties.

Heat an electric grill to medium-high. Cook patties for 3-4 minutes on each side until completely cooked through.

Remove and place on individual King's Hawaiian Dinner Rolls

Spoon Tangy Avocado Sauce over cooked salmon sliders. Top with a slice of fresh Avocado and the bun. 

In hind sight, we all agreed that while these sliders were absolutely delicious that they needed some 'CRUNCH.' I would definitely add cucumber and maybe some green onion to top these off next time I make them.

For an added kick I put some leftover Sriracha Cream Sauce I had from my Teriyaki Salmon recipe - if you have some extra time on your hands I highly recommend making this sauce as an optional addition for some of the people who enjoy the spicier things in life.
