Panko-Crusted Salmon Sliders

YIELD 12 pieces


1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup Kikkoman ponzu sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
1 unpeeled English cucumber, thinly sliced

1 1/2 pounds uncooked salmon, skinned
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Black pepper, to taste
2 cups Kikkoman panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons canola oil
12 small slider buns or rolls


1. To prepare cucumbers, combine ingredients in a bowl. Mix well and let stand 15 minutes. Drain before using.

2. To prepare burgers, chop salmon into medium-size pieces, place in food processor in 2 batches, and pulse to dice. Transfer to a bowl. Add garlic, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

3. Divide salmon mixture into 4 portions. Shape into patties.

4. Dredge patties in Kikkoman panko breadcrumbs.  Gently press crumbs into patties to adhere.

5. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add oil. When oil is hot, place patties in pan and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. (Alternately, place in a grill basket and grill on both sides until thoroughly cooked.)

6. Toast buns. Top bun bottoms with salmon burgers and soy cucumbers. Place bun tops on top.
