Directions

To prepare salsa, combine peaches, jalapeno and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Add sugar and mix well. Stir in salt and cilantro and toss gently to mix; set aside. Preheat grill. To prepare burgers, mash salmon bones with the back of a fork. Combine salmon, scallion, lemon zest, egg, black pepper and bread crumbs in a medium bowl; mix well. Shape salmon mixture into four 1-inch-thick patties. Gently place burgers in a grill basket or on a grill rack and grill at medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Flip burgers and grill about 3 minutes more, until golden brown on both sides. Serve salmon burgers with peach salsa on the side. Yields 1 burger and about 1/2 cup of salsa per serving. (Note: The burgers can be broiled instead of grilled, if desired. Coat a broiler rack with cooking spray, preheat broiler and broil 4 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes per side.)
