  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 pinch each kosher salt and crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup raw sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups fresh herbs, such as cilantro, mint, and parsley, roughly torn
  • 1 cup fresh arugula
  • 4 fresh naan, warmed
  • romaine lettuce, for serving


  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • kosher salt


  1. 1. Add the salmon to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until it’s finely ground, about 30 seconds. Add the salmon to a bowl and mix with curry paste, ginger, garlic, and a pinch each of salt and crushed red pepper flakes.  Form the mix into 4 burger patties.
  1. Place the sesame seeds in a shallow bowl and coat both sides of the burgers in seeds. Cover the burgers and chill 15-30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the yogurt. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the salmon burgers and cook until the seeds are toasted and golden brown, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet. Wipe the skillet clean.
  4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the butter in the skillet over high heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally until caramelized, about 3 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest. Remove the shallots to a paper towel lined plate. Reserve the oil in the pan.
  5. To make the herb topping. In a small bowl, toss together the herbs, arugula, reserved oil, and the crisp shallots.
  6. To assemble, spread each piece of naan with yogurt. Add the lettuce, then the burger, and then the herb topping. Serve and enjoy!

    He made this recipe last night – I must say that the first person I did with you was less than excitement. I did not get 2 tablespoons of curry flavor or ginger required by the recipe. I’m not sure if this was a common problem, but after the burger mixed with earth and spices, there was some problem with the stay to stay formed. After finally cooking, the burger was pretty dry / crumbled. It looked nice, so I’m definitely going to score there, and the yogurt with lemon was a nice part of the added flavor. There were also shallots and herbs, and I advise everyone not to do this in these two parts of the recipe.
    I wanted to love this recipe, because I love the salmon burger, but it needs some adjustment before trying again.Change things with this Sesame Crusted Curly Salmon Burger and Lemon Crops.
