Baked Salmon Sliders with BBQ Jerk Sauce

June 17, 2018

These delicious Baked Salmon Sliders with BBQ Jerk Sauce are a must-have for the summer. They are perfectly small to act as a great appetizer for guests, a nice bite to eat for lunch, or perhaps a few good bites for dinner. Either way, these salmon sliders are loaded with flavor and spice, specifically from the BBQ Jerk sauce. 

Baked Salmon Sliders with BBQ Jerk Sauce

One thing I’ve learned when making any type of sandwich or burger is that the bun is the most important part, obviously besides the actual “meat” item.

Normally, I would make a burger with the regular store-bought burger buns (there’s nothing wrong with them by the way!), however, with these salmon burgers, I wanted to try something new—-brioche buns.

When eating out, I usually enjoy a good brioche bun when eating a burger, however, this was my first time buying this specialty bread at home and using them in a homemade recipe and I must say that I can’t go back to regular buns, ya’ll. Haha.

These buns are just perfect! Oh and they become nicely buttered once slightly warmed on a skillet with light butter. It’s just pure GOODNESS. Yum! Now, I want one of these sliders again. Haha.

The best thing that I love about eating sliders is their size. It’s so much easier to eat a fully packed burger when they’re this small, at least I would like to think so.

Plus, I can have 3 or 4 without feeling like I’ve done way too much in the eating department. Who else understands where I’m coming from?

With this recipe, the sauce was something that I definitely wanted to keep traditional (at least in my Jamaican culture). When it comes to any type of seafood burger, most recipes include a nice garlic or herb sauce or perhaps an occasional chipotle or chili flavor.

However, in my culture, we keep things really spicy and of course the Southern girl in me loves some good ole’ BBQ sauce! So, why not use both right?

Personally, this sauce is the star!

Speaking of burgers, these Extra Crispy Carrot Spinach Quinoa Veggie Burgers are so full of flavor that you wouldn’t be able to tell that they were made out of veggies. But if you’re into something spicy and BBQ-y, then these Hot + Spicy ‘Nine Mile’ Buffalo Chicken Wings are a MUST!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Start by adding the dijon mustard, old bay seasoning, bread crumbs, dried parsley, lemon zest, and black pepper to a medium bowl, mixing everything together well.

Add in the salmon chunks and using your hands, massage everything together until fully combined and coated.

Take about 1/3 cup of the salmon chunks mixture and pressing firmly, create a nicely flat burger patty. Repeat until you have about 8 salmon patties made.

Once all patties are made, add them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake them in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes, flipping them to their opposite sides at the half-way point.

Serve on lightly heated (using butter in a skillet) buns with a slice of purple onions, spinach, jalapeños, and a nice slab of BBQ Jerk sauce.

Bon Appetite!

Tips & Tricks

BBQ JERK SAUCE: Simply add 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce, 1 1/2 tsps spicy jerk seasoning, 1 tsp red pepper flakes, pinch of sea salt and black pepper, whisking everything together until well incorporated. Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Wallah!
HOMEMADE BREADCRUMBS: To make your own breadcrumbs, simply grind 1-2 cups of cubed bread into a food processor until finely chopped. Place crumbs onto a parchment lined baking sheet and spread out evenly. Bake for 5-6 minutes in the oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring occasionally. Once brown + crisp, remove from oven and let cool. Continue recipe steps and store remaining breadcrumbs in a tightly sealed container.
