Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. 

For the Salmon: Remove the skin and any bones from the salmon and cut into small pieces. Add to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Remove and add to a large bowl. 

For the pesto: Put the pistachios, basil, orange juice, Parmesan, olive oil, garlic,hot sauce and a pinch of salt and pepper in a blender or food processor and puree.

For the burger: Add 1/2 cup of pesto per pound of salmon and stir in the breadcrumbs until incorporated. Add some more breadcrumbs if the mixture is too moist to hold together. Cook a small piece of the burger mixture and test for taste and consistency.

Portion the burger mixture into 6-ounce patties, arrange on a baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and then wrap each burger in phyllo dough. Return the burgers to the oven at the same temperature for 7 more minutes. Arrange on a serving platter and serve.
