Salmon Burger

From Rachael Ray Big Orange Book

1 1/2 pounds skinless salmon fillet, cut into large chunks
2 tablespoons capers, chopped
Grated peel of half a lemon (lemon half reserved for squeezing)
1/3 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley (a generous handful)
2 teaspoons seafood seasoning
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1/4 English (seedless) cucumber, chopped
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
4 Kaiser rolls, split
4 red leaf lettuce leaves

Using a food processor, coarsely chop the salmon; transfer to a bowl. Mix in the capers, lemon peel, parsley and seafood seasoning and season with salt and pepper. Form into four patties.Pre-heat the broiler. In a nonstick skillet, heat the EVOO, one turn around the pan, over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes on each side.Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cucumber, tomatoes and red onion. In another small bowl, mix the mustard with the dill.Toast the rolls under the broiler and slather each side with the mustard-dill sauce. Squeeze the lemon half over the cooked burgers. Set a lettuce leaf and burger on each roll bottom and top with tomato-cucumber relish and a roll top.
