For the slaw:

  • 4 cups coleslaw mix
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For the avocado mayonnaise:

  • 2 medium ripe avocados pitted
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Juice and finely grated zest of 1 large lime
  • 4-5 dashes hot sauce

For the burgers:

  • 1 14.75-ounce can salmon undrained
  • cups gluten-free panko-style breadcrumbs
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 4-ounce can chopped mild green chilies drained
  • 1 cup corn kernels thawed if frozen
  • 3 medium scallions finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 8 gluten-free hamburger buns toasted


Make the slaw:

  • Combine all slaw ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Make the avocado mayonnaise:

  • Mash the avocados in a small mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Make the burgers:

  • Put the salmon and liquid from the can in a large mixing bowl and flake the salmon with a fork. Add the breadcrumbs, eggs, chili powder, chilies, corn, and scallions. Mix well. Form into 8 tightly-packed patties, about ½-inch thick.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the patties in batches (do not over-crowd the pan), cooking for 3-4 minutes per side or until nicely browned.

To serve:

  • Spread the bottom bun with avocado mayonnaise. Top with a salmon patty. Top the patty with some slaw and the top burger bun.
