Smoked Salmon Banh Mi Sliders
The burger patty is smoked salmon, the rest is all banh mi ingredients, so trying to stay traditional here except it's smoked salmon sliders.
For slider buns I chose White French Rolls because these are slider size and similar to the Vietnamese baguette used for banh mis (from French Colonial days) which is more airy than crusty, like these.
A "quick pickle" of shredded carrot, dikon radish, and sliced jalapeno
- White French Rolls
Common to the banh mi is mayo which is often flavored. Here we have:
- White vinegar
- Turbinado sugar
- Warm water poured over, and cling wrapped
- Organic mayo
- Barrel-aged soy sauce
- Lime zest (lime is traditional to Vietnamese food)
- Fatalii powder (spicy banh mis are common, I chose fatalii for the heat and citrusy profile)dual_burger_duel_mayo_prep.png
For the patties, it's Faroe Islands salmon, which is free swimming salmon from the channels of the Faroe Islands (Demmark). Skin and mince with a knife until like ground meat.
- Minced salmon
After curing remove excess liquid and mix in mayo as a binder (NO bread crumbs here, and mayo is eggs and oil, perfect for this).
- Sea salt
- Barrel -aged soy sauce
- Turbinado sugar
Form patties in cling wrap. Pop in freezer and macgyver a blast chiller with ice packs until the patties SET not FREEZE. When set, unwrap and smoke the salmon patties over apple wood. No need to flip! They are smoking not grilling, and will form a beautiful crust.
- Brined salmon
- Tablespoon organic mayo
Lightly toast the buns and assemble:
- Homemade mayo sauce on top bun
- Cilantro on top bun
- Salmon patty on bottom bun
- Pickled ingredients on top of patty
- Red hot sauce (Sriracha is common, but I chose a fave, Hellfire Bay Hab-Burn from Australia!dual_burger_duel_open_faced.png
I could eat a six pack!
I totally agree.The Hot Pepper said:Damn Grant, that last handheld shot is like all you need! I never liked the idea of slicing of burger, but for a comp, it's like Cliff's Notes, and you see everything in an eyeshot!
