Dill sauce preparation
Finely chop dill. Put mayonnaise in a bowl. Add consommé, Japanese mustard, soy sauce, salt and pepper and mix well. Add dill and mix. Other aromatic herbs, including fresh basil and mint leaves, could substitute dill.

1 Cut bread with a pastry cutter or lid of can. Tear leftover bread with fingers to make crumbs. Remove skin and bones, if any, from the salmon fillets. Coarsely chop fillets before mashing with a knife.

2 Pour milk in bread crumbs and mix together. The bread will absorb the moisture.

3 Peel and shave burdock and soak in water to remove bitterness. Then drain thoroughly.

4 Mince onion.

5 Mix well salmon, ground pork, egg, bread crumbs and ginger juice in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

6 Add onion and burdock and mix together.

7 Shape mold into patties. They should be the same size as the cut out bread in diameter.

8 Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan. Pan-fry patties until browned on both sides and cooked through.

9 Toast bread. Layer lettuce leaf and salad herb mix on the bread, and place the cooked salmon patty.

10 Pour dill sauce on top, and cover with bread to make a burger.
