Andfjord Salmon burger with Americana dressing and cheddar

"My wife is from Fauske in Northern Norway and loves salmon. One of the varieties she likes the most is when I compose a salmon burger with a tasty Americana dressing," says director and photographer Finn-Erik Rognan.

Cut the salmon into thin slices which you then slice into small fine pieces. Put the salmon in a bowl and add shallots, capers, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, Worcestershire sauce, coriander, and a pinch of salt.

Mix it all together with your hands. Then shape burger patties that are about 1.5-2 cm high. Place them on a tray and cover with foil. Leave them to cool for at least 1 hour in the fridge.  

Americana dressing

Mix the dressing with the ingredients as described below. Then caramelize the onion in a pan with a little olive oil and salt. Use low heat and plenty of time. Put everything in a bowl and mix it together. Leave the dressing to cool for 10 minutes in the fridge.

Heat a pan to medium-high heat and fry the burgers in olive oil, about 2 minutes on each side.

Bake the bacon in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius, until crispy. Remove and dry on paper towels.

Put together the burgers.
