I’m hardly ever satisfied with the purchase of a prepared food product these days. Perhaps because I really enjoy putting my meals together from scratch, perhaps because I’ve become obsessed with my “Finishing Touches“; perhaps because an impulse purchase is nothing more than, well, an impulse purchase. It generally turns into one of those “what was I thinking?” moments.
A package of frozen Wild Pacific Salmon Burgers seemed like a good idea for a quick and healthy meal. But after trying the first one, I was underwhelmed. And since it was a Costco purchase, you know there was more than 1 burger in that package. I had to get creative.
Wild Pacific Salmon Burger goes Asian.
The burger was brushed with a blend of fish sauce, mirin and sriracha;
topped with sesame seeds and baked for 10 minutes on each side.
Going with what I had available, I julienned red cabbage and red pepper and gave them a quick boil in rice vinegar with a drop of soy sauce. To finish the drained vegetables, I tossed them with a drizzle of sesame oil.
Ah, the burger tasted so much better.
Next Time: I’m thinking next time I pull one out of the freezer, it’ll go Greek … very lemony with a crumbled feta and a chopped Greek salad.
But, then, there are still quite a few left — any ideas?
