Method

  1. Put the salmon, horseradish, lemon zest and half the dill in a food processor, season and blitz to a fine paste.

  3. Meanwhile, mix the remaining dill with the mayonnaise and spread a little onto the base of each roll. Toss the watercress in the lemon juice and put a handful on each roll base. Top with a burger and finish with slices of cucumber and radish. Replace roll tops to serve, if you like, or serve them alongside.

This recipe worked for me although the creamed horseradish is pretty disgusting stuff when eaten in isolation - so avoid the temptation. For my complete review of the recipe and photo, go to http://www.badzilla.co.uk/Easy-Cook--Salmon-and-Horseradish-Burger

I have made many different types of fishcakes and would like to suggest that perhaps instead of blitzing to a paste you whizz just a it so there is still some texture to these burgers and that you have some larger "chunks" of Salmon. Hope this helps.- Lois-

Me and my husband liked these but the kids who usually wolf down 'pink' fish didn't (possibly the dill and lemon).

having picked up tartare sauce instead of horseradish..... Silly me.... I thought I'd try these using the former. They were lovely and I'll definitely make them again... Maybe even with horseradish!

The uncooked burgers looked like cheap sausage meat - very unappealing. The finished result was pretty disappointing too. I think you would get a better result by pan frying the salmon fillets and serving with a blob of dill mayonnaise on the side.
