Salmon Burgers

(recipe adapted from In Great Taste: Fresh Simple Recipes for Eating and Living Well by Evelyn Lauder )

1 tablespoon EVOO
1/4 cup chopped scallions or yellow onion
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 pound salmon fillet, bones removed, cut into 1" cubes
1/2 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp plain bread crumbs
salt and pepper to season

Heat 1/2 Tbsp of oil over medium heat in a small non-stick skillet. Add onions and cookfor 2 minutes, until translucent. Add lemon juice and raise heat to medium high, cooking until most of the liquids have evaporated. Remove from pan and add to bowl to cool.

Place raw salmon in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Add to onions, and mix in egg, parsley, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Form into 2 equal size patties.

Heat remaining oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Sear patties for about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Serve over a salad or on wheat bun as you would a burger.

WW info:
CORE - all included (well, the breadcrumbs account for .25 points per burger, so you can go 0 or .5)
FLEX - have to figure it out
