Meatless Fridays

Any kind of summer cooking where you don't have to turn on the oven is great by me! Grilling these burgers outside gives them a wonderful smoky flavor, and canned salmon is always great for the budget! JP and Dan call these "crabby patties"...I call them DELISH!
This week's Meatless Friday meal is:

Salmon Burgers

1 (16 ounce) can salmon, drained and flaked
2 eggs
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1/4 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs or Panko
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 pinch red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 pinch dried basil

In a medium bowl, mix together the salmon, eggs, parsley, onion, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of basil, and red pepper flakes. Form into 6 firmly packed patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
Grill patties or cook on stove top in a small amount of oil until golden brown on both sides.
In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and a pinch of basil. Use as a sauce for your patties.
