  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 2 tbsp reduced-sodium tamari sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp wasabi powder
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1 lb salmon filet
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons of low-sodium tamari sauce, 1 1/2 teaspoons of wasabi powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of honey. Set aside.
  2. With a large chef's knife, chop salmon using quick, up-and-down motions (don't rock the knife through the fish or it will soften and mush). Chop until you have a pile of 1/4-inch pieces of fish.
  3. Add two chopped scallions, two egg whites, 2 tablespoons of minced ginger, and 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil to the salmon. Stir to combine.
  4. Form the mixture into salmon patties (it will be moist and loose, but will firm up once cooked).
  5. Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat.
  6. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes.
  7. Turn and cook other side for 3 minutes.
  8. Spoon the wasabi glaze over the burgers, and cook for 15 more seconds.
  9. Serve immediately. You can top the burger with 4 ounces of Asian Slaw.
