1 small red onion (1/2 thinly sliced, 1/2 diced)

1/2 head green cabbage, very thinly sliced (about 4 cups)

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 14-ounce can salmon, drained and flaked with a fork

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 green apple, cut into matchsticks

4 potato buns


  1. Toss the sliced onion, cabbage, rice vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Mix the salmon with the diced onion, eggs, panko, 1/4 cup dill, 2 tablespoons crème fraîche, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Mix 1/4 cup creme fraiche with the remaining 1 tablespoon dill in a small bowl.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the salmon patties and cook until browned and firm, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Add the apple to the cabbage mixture. Fold in the remaining 1/4 cup creme fraiche and 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Serve the salmon burgers on the buns; top with the dill creme fraiche. Serve with the slaw.
