Whole Food Burgers

When I go to either Central Market in Houston or Whole Foods in Baton Rouge I always get the flavored raw hamburger and seafood patties and raw sausages. I did pick out some sausages but must have left them on the meat counter because I was not charged for them and I did not have them when I got home. Anyway here are the burgers. The first one does not have a picture because the camera was in the vehicle and I did not feel like getting it. I really need to get one for the house and one for the car. Anyway it was a Spicy Steakhouse Burger. They mixed in an in house steak marinade called Theo's. It consisted of oil, vinegar, brown sugar, onion, garlic, and water. Cayenne pepper and sea salt were also in the burger. This turned out quite nice. Meaty and spicy.

The next two pics show the Jalapeno Cheddar Salmon Burger. It contained wild salmon, Jalapenos, cheddar cheese,black and red pepper, allspice, paprika, natural hickory smoke, garlic and breadcrumbs. Nice and thick with a good salmon flavor. It was also very spicy. At my limit but I persevered and ate every bite even though at the end my mouth was on fire. The salmon and Jalapeno went well together. I bought a fillet of Char and when I cook it I may have to make a basting sauce of chipotle. I also bought some fig preserves at The Red Stick Farmer's market. That mixed together sounds good.

This is the Green Onion Bacon Burger with bacon, green onions, garlic, black pepper, ginger, and red pepper. I should have put cheese on this one. It would have made the perfect bacon cheeseburger. It was delicious however with a smoke component and that fresh green onion flavor. Sorta like green onion sausage but with beef

The last one is Thai Curry Wild Shrimp Burger. It consisted of Key West Pink Shrimp, red bell pepper, green onion, mayo, cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin, cardamon and eggs. The shrimp were very small and whole and the burger quite spicy with an exotic taste. There was some spice that predominated which I did not care for. Other than that it would have been delicious. Can't hit it out of the ballpark every time

As I go through my other seafood and meat I will try to post. Right now I have a sea bass steak defrosting along with some lamb.
