The inspiration for these insanely delicious salmon sliders comes from my family's all-time favorite hamburger recipe found in Jamie Oliver's book Comfort Food. He calls it the Insanity Burger. You can find this book in the TOM Cookbook Club collection.
In the spirit of “standing on the shoulders of giants” in mind, I prepared my salmon burger incorporating one of the condiments recommended from Jamie's burger recipe. I highly recommend grabbing that cookbook and trying the Insanity Burgers, by the way.
Since it's a good idea to get some healthy omega-3 fatty acids in our diet, I wanted to create a Salmon burger that would be just as delicious. The two main elements that make these salmon burgers outstanding are are 1) the use of the mustard and hot sauce combo while cooking the salmon and 2) the lettuce, ketchup, mayo combo used in building the burger. The size of these burgers make them fun and easier to hold therefore perfect for kids!

Depending on the size of your can of salmon you may need to adjust your recipe slightly, with 12 ounces of salmon (from two 6-ounce cans) a scant or with a 15 ounce can use a heaping, 1/8 cup of coconut flour. Mixture should be able to hold together fairly well without crumbling.
Use your imagination in the kitchen. Don't be limited by my recipe recommendations, use whatever toppings you like on your insanely delicious salmon sliders. Here are a few ideas:
