Salmon Sliders with Tomato Garlic Relish

Perfect for the ground salmon in our Wild Alaskan Fish subscription this month! Though we cooked ours up on the stove, this recipe would be perfect to grill at a summer cookout.


  • 1 lb ground salmon (defrosted)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced.
  • 2 Tbs breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper


  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced.
  • 1 T butter


  1. Open package, drain salmon, and place into a medium sized mixing bowl.

  2. Combine with minced garlic, egg, breadcrumbs, a tsp of salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. Form into patties, place on a plate, and put in freezer for a few minutes while you make the relish.

  4. In a small pan, heat 1 Tbs butter. Add garlic and tomatoes and cook down until very soft and sweet tasting. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  5. In a large pan, heat 1 Tbs butter for the sliders. Remove patties from freezer.

  7. Once the butter is bubbling, place your sliders on the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are nicely browned on the outside and cooked all the way through.

  8. Pop a couple slices of bread into the toaster.

  9. Cut the slices of bread in half, top with bit of mesclun. Place a sliders on top, and garnish with the relish. Yum!
