Denise Phillips’ Sesame Salmon Burgers

Burgers of all description never fail to satisfy a hungry family. Using fresh salmon, this recipe might encourage the most fussiest of eaters to eat fish! Make for mid-week supper, picnic or enjoy al fresco as they are delicious hot, cold or warm!  I like to make a double batch and freeze one for another occasion when time is of the essence.
