Salmon Burger: Goat Cheese & Cranberry

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love salmon burgers. Usually, I buy salmon burgers from the seafood counter at Whole Foods. WF has a great selection of flavors: teriyaki, spinach&feta, lemon&thyme, and goat cheese&cranberry, among others. So I decided it was finally time to re-create my favorite salmon burgers for cheaper at home! Up first is my take on the goat cheese&cranberry.

1.5lbs of Salmon (this recipe makes 12 burgers)
Whole wheat bread crumbs
2 Eggs
Old Bay seasoning
4oz Goat Cheese
1/3 cup dried cranberries
Olive oil
Rinse your salmon and pat dry
Drizzle on olive oil and old bay spice
Bake in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes
(this partially cooks the salmon, we'll cook the salmon the rest of the way as burgers)
Let your salmon cool
Flake the salmon into a mixing bowl (make sure to take out bones)
Add 2 eggs, 1/3 cup bread crumbs, and mix
Add 1/3 cup roughly chopped dried cranberries and mix
Form small goat cheese balls
Fold goat cheese balls into the mixture
Form the salmon burgers! 
In a pan with olive oil or
On a wood plank on the grill
Remember: the salmon burger is partially cooked! It should only take 5 or so minutes to cook the rest of the way
Freeze the extra burgers for later!
