Wife, son and I all agree; salmon rocks the house.  I’ll eat it just about anytime, for any meal.  When I buy a particularly fresh filet at a good price, I always buy extra so I can process and freeze half of it into salmon burgers.  They thaw quickly and are great with a salad.

The last time I went to the grocery store I found these nifty fruit wrappers.  They’re basically just high-falootin’ fruit leather.  Since I’ve never worked with these before I thought I’d give them a shot.  I placed some of my salmon burger salad into a wrapper, then lightly rehydrated the wrapper while it was filled.  It worked alright, but as you cansee it turned out a little messy (I was having fun practicing my plating as well).  This tasted better than it looks, trust me.

The balsamic vinegar I used is a smoked balsamic that I picked up at a specialty shop in Virginia.  It’s marvelous, very light and sweet.  I whisked a small amount of white wine vinegar and olive oil in for the final drizzle, and sprinkled some Old Bay seasoning on the burger.
