Total Time:


1 cup apple cider
2 golden delicious apples , peeled and coarsely grated
3 medium shallots (or 1 small red onion), finely chopped
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon curry powder
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro, plus whole leaves for topping
1 1/4 pound skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise, plus more for topping
2 teaspoons unsalted butter, plus more for the buns
4 potato buns, split and toasted
potato chips , for serving (optional)


Combine the cider, apples, 2 shallots, 2 tablespoons vinegar, 1 teaspoon curry powder, and salt and pepper to taste in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook until the liquid evaporates, about 12 minutes; let cool slightly. Stir in 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro.

Meanwhile, pulse three-quarters of the salmon in a food processor until finely ground. Add the remaining salmon; pulse until chopped. Transfer to a bowl; stir in the panko, mayonnaise and the remaining shallot, 2 tablespoons cilantro, 1 tablespoon vinegar and 2 teaspoons curry powder. Add salt and pepper. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.

Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook until browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Butter the buns and sandwich with the salmon burgers, mayonnaise, the apple relish and more cilantro. Serve with chips.
