Big Mac Benny (Custom)
Ok I know I am gonna hear about this one but before you get on the “what the hell is he doing“ rant let me tell you something about the fast food chains like McDonalds, Wendy’s, In and Out Burger etc….THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING! Think about it, they have perfected the ratio of bun to meat, to sauce to cheese etc. Then they do this on a mass scale globally and make it uniform. The problem I have is with the meat, this is where they are killing people and the planet. But I’ll give it to them and so do many other chefs, Gordon Ramsay eats at In and Our Burger and loves it, Thomas Keller loves In and Out burger. Eric Ripert eats the burgers at several places. So I decided to make a burger from my childhood the “Big Mac” but a healthy version that will taste nothing like the original, won’t have any of the fake reconstituted vegetables, won’t have meat from cows that were fed corn and put side by side on a huge cattle farm…but it will taste good and be really healthy for you as well. I made it I ate it and I enjoy it…check it out.

2 servings

Ingredients

  • Toasted sesame seed hamburger bun, plus one more bottom bun
  • Slice of American cheese
  • 3 slice of pickles
  • Finley chopped scallion
  • Baby spinach
  • Spicy mayo

Salmon patties:

  • One pound of salmon filet skin removed
  • one chopped scallion
  • one egg
  • teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • squeeze of lemon juice

Directions

Salmon patties:
One pound of salmon filet skin removed, now with a knife chop it until it is pretty fine. Now add one chopped scallion, one egg, teaspoon of Dijon mustard and a squeeze of lemon juice. Mix everything together well. Now I used a ring mold form a thin patty but you can do it by wetting your hands and forming them into a patty size you want. Now I put mine in the fridge overnight to let the flavors meld and more importantly let the patty firm up.

Method:
Start by grilling or frying your patties about 90 seconds each side and then let rest. Now to assemble, start by toasting the buns a little, now with the bottom bun add some baby spinach and the slice of American cheese followed by some of the spicy mayo , the first salmon patty a few scallions. Now place the middle bun on and put some more spicy mayo on followed by more baby spinach , the 2nd patty, the pickles and some more of the chopped scallions finished with the crown top bun and that’s it!

I thought this tasted great, the cheese works well I know I know but it does ..

Enjoy
