Mango Slaw


Mix mango, red cabbage, lime zest and juice, salt, and agave together in a large bowl until well combined. Set aside. Can be made the day before.

Green Goddess Aioli


Add sour cream, cilantro, basil, parsley, chive, avocado, mayonnaise/yogurt, lemon juice, salt and garlic into a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning and set aside.

The Burgers


Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add salmon burgers and sear on both sides for 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Repeat on other side. For a more flavorful result, use the grill for the same amount of time.
