Gluten Free Bagel with Lox Burger

by Carol Kicinski on June 15, 2012

Post image for Gluten Free Bagel with Lox Burger Years ago, before going truly gluten free, my husband and I had a weekly tradition. Every Sunday morning, we would wake up bright and early, walk down the oak tree studded hill we lived on to the charming downtown area of our little town of Los Gatos, Calif. and go to the Farmer’s Market. On the way to market we would stop first for a coffee from the roasting company then walk a couple doors down to the bagel place. Every Sunday, I ordered the same thing; an everything bagel, toasted, with scallion schmear, lox, tomato and red onion. I miss everything about those days – the wide variety of fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables, the musicians playing in the park to the delight of dancing children, my steaming cappuccino and of course, that bagel!

This gluten free salmon-burger recipe is reminiscent of that bagel. The burger itself is made from coarsely ground salmon with a hint of smokiness from smoked paprika, the spread is just like that schmear I loved and the buns are topped with all the fixings of an everything bagel.

The gluten free buns were so simple to make thanks to Kinnikinnick’s Bread & Bun Mix – just add water, top with and egg wash and some sesame and poppy seeds, granulated garlic and onion and bake in oven-proof ramekins which give you that perfect burger bun shape.

This salmon-burger has it all – except a name!  That’s where you come in.

Here’s the challenge – read through the recipe and come up with a fun, creative, clever name for it.

You can enter as many as 5 names if you like but they all have to be different and submitted in individual comments.

You have until Sunday, June 30th, midnight (EST) to enter in your name(s). The next day, I will pick a winner and officially change the name of this recipe. The winner will be announced in this post plus I will send that person an email, so make sure you provide a legit email address.

This isn’t random or computer generated! I am picking the name I like best!

The winner will receive a case of Kinnikinnick’s Bread & Bun Mix.

I can only ship to an address in the United States or Canada. If you live in another country, you can go ahead and enter, but you need to provide me with a U.S. or Canadian shipping address.

For all the official rules, go here.

So, what would you name this gluten free recipe?

Update – Thank you Alisa for coming up with the winning name for this gluten free recipe – Bagel with Lox Burger!  Enjoy your case of Kinnikinnick’s Gluten Free Bread and Bun Mix!  Thanks to all who participated – such great names it was hard to pick a winner!

 

Gluten Free Salmon Burgers Recipe

Gluten Free Bagel with Lox Burger

Ingredients

2 pounds boneless salmon fillets
1 whole lemon
2 tablespoons minced fresh dill
Kosher salt & black pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Olive oil
6 ounces cream cheese (or dairy free cream cheese alternative), at room temperature
4 scallions, white and green parts, minced
6 lettuce leaves
2 large tomatoes, sliced
½ red onion, sliced
6 burger buns (recipe follows)

Directions

Remove the skin from the salmon fillets and place in a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse several times to coarsely grind the meat. Put the ground salmon in a mixing bowl, finely grate the peel into the bowl (save the lemon), add the dill, smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper and mix well. Form into 6 equal sized patties. Brush a little olive oil over the top of each burger.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan and heat. Cook the burgers 3- 5 minutes per side; 3 minutes for pink inside, 5 for cooked through.

Combine the cream cheese with the juice of the lemon, a pinch of salt and pepper and the minced scallions. Stir to combine.

Cut the burger buns in half. To toast, spread the cut sides with some softened butter, dairy free butter or oil and toast for a few seconds in a hot, dry skillet.

Spread some of the cream cheese spread on both cut sides of each bun. Place a lettuce lave on the bottom bun, top with a salmon patty, sliced tomatoes and red onion. Top with the bun top and serve.

Servings:

A gluten free recipe that serves 6.

Gluten Free Everything Bagel Burger Buns

Burger Buns

Ingredients

Gluten free, non-stick cooking spray
3 cups Kinnikinnick Bread & Bun Mix
2 cups water
1 teaspoon dried minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray six ramekins (4 – 5 inches in diameter) with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.

Combine the Bread & Bun mix with 2 cups water and beat for 3 minutes with an electric mixer on high speed. Divide the batter among the prepared ramekins (the easiest way to do this is to use a large ice cream scoop, 2 scoops per ramekin).

In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, onion, sesame and poppy seeds and salt.

Beat the egg with 1 teaspoon of water. Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the buns with the egg wash, let dry for about 30 seconds then apply a second coat. Sprinkle the garlic/onion/seed mixture over the tops of the buns. Bake for 30 minutes or until the buns are golden brown and starting to pull away from the sides of the ramekins. Let cool in the ramekins for 5 minutes then remove from the ramekins and place on a wire rack to finish cooling. Cut in half to serve.

Servings:

A gluten free recipe that makes 6 buns.

Love your Newsletter and your recipes. Just got your Quick Meals cookbook and can’t wait to try the recipes. I think you should name your Salmon Burger after the town where you first had it – “The Los Gatos Salmon Burger”.

Good luck!
