"This versatile recipe by Dumont Monte from his cookbook simply titled "Salmon" is among the 1st things I make each year when fishing season begins & supplies in our freezer are replenished by my DH. While not a burger in the traditional sense as it's not cooked -- It's definitely an easy-fix, ideal for a light lunch & is ingredient-friendly for to-go occasions, camping or fishing trips + cold food patio parties. As written, the recipe used a mix of metric & US measurements, so I entered it the same way. (This is a NO-COOK recipe, but 15 min was allowed for ingredient prep & 5 min for assembly) Enjoy!"

You know I love avocado and lox - and this did not disappoint. Everything here combines to deliciousness, we especially loved the avocado mayo spread. I will take this over a regular burger any day.

Scaled back for 1 serve and what a delicious and oh so filling lunch, the only change I would make in future is to use tomato slices rather than cherry tomatoes halved. Thank you twissis made for Pick Me Tag game under the 48 hour rule.
