Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 16 ounces fresh skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 large carrot, peeled into ribbons
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 brioche buns
  • 2 heads baby gem lettuce


  • Grill Grate
  • Large Bowl
  • Small Bowl
  • Silicone Tipped Spatula
  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, miso paste, ginger, garlic, lime zest, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of canola oil, salmon, salt, and pepper and mix well.

  • Step 2

    Form the salmon mixture into four equal-size patties about ¾ inch thick. Refrigerate the patties to set while you prepare the sauce and the carrots.

  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, siracha, 1 tablespoon of lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 4

    In a medium bowl, toss the carrots, the remaining 1 tablespoon of lime juice, and the cilantro until combined. Set aside.

  • Step 5

    Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to HIGH, and set the time to 11 minutes. Press the dial to begin preheating.

  • Step 6

    While the unit is preheating, remove the burgers from the refrigerator and brush both sides with the remaining 2 tablespoons of canola oil.

  • Step 7

    When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place the burgers on the Grill Grate, gently pressing them down to maximize grill marks. Leave the hood open to begin cooking.

  • Step 8

    When the unit beeps and the display reads FLIP, use a rubber-tipped spatula to flip the burgers. Leave the hood open and continue cooking.

  • Step 9

    While the burgers are cooking, evenly cover the cut sides of the buns with the sriracha mayonnaise.

  • Step 10

    When cooking is complete, place the burgers in the prepared buns. Top them with the lettuce and the carrot strips.
