Salmon burgers are a favorite at our house, and these ones, cooked on cedar planks and with an indent filled with avocado crema, make them even better. Add in some quinoa, and you've got a meal that's fast, delicious, and healthy: hard to top for a weeknight treat.


  • Submerge cedar plank in water for at least 45 minutes, and preheat oven to 350F.
  • Knife chop salmon into small pieces, approximating the consistency of ground beef, and add to a bowl.
  • Drop in egg, panko, and olive oil, and mix well to combine.
  • Mince and add scallion, along with Pacific Seafood Seasoning and Taste of California Seasoning.
  • Form patties in the Ultimate Burger Press so they have and indent, place on cedar plank, and pop in the oven.
  • In a rice cooker, combine quinoa and chicken stock, and cook until done.
  • While they're baking, combine avocado, cream, and Jalapeño Sea Salt in a blender, pulsing until creamy.
  • Remove finished quinoa, mixing with chopped tomato and Everything But The Avocado Toast Seasoning.
  • Remove salmon burgers from the oven, and quarter the lemon.
  • Plate: lay down quinoa, top with butter lettuce and salmon burgers, before spooning in crema in the indent.
  • Arrange lemons, garnish with parsley, serve, and devor.
