2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the salmon burgers

  • Pat the salmon burgers dry with a paper towel; rub the burgers on both sides with the lemongrass paste.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the salmon burgers and cook, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
While the burgers cook, start preparing the slaw.


Make the crunchy Asian slaw

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce. Remove 4 [8] of the largest outer leaves for the burgers; thinly slice the remaining leaves.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal.
In a small bowl, stir together the cashew-lime dressing base and 1½ tablespoons [3 TBL] water; season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrots, thinly sliced lettuce, scallions, and half the dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper and add more dressing if desired. Sprinkle with the cashews.


Transfer the lettuce leaves to individual plates. Top with the salmon burgers and as much slaw as you like. Serve any remaining slaw and dressing on the side.
