Kokanee Burgers

Love your store bought salmon burgers? Make your own! I grew up on kokanee (aka landlocked dwarf salmon in Western North America-Idaho to be specific). Tired of the store bought taste, I decided to make my own. You can do this! Soooooo worth it! Yum!

1 1/4 lbs kokanee, skin and bones removed

2 Tbsp horseradish mustard 

1 Tbsp mayonnaise

1 Tbsp lemon or lime juice

Pinch of crushed pepper

2 green onions, chopped

1 cup instant potato flakes (I like Idahoan garlic and herb for extra flavor)

2 Tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Buns of choice

Tartar sauce, red onion and fresh greens of choice for topping

-Massage with your hand until thoroughly mixed
