    Smoky Glazed Salmon Sliders with Yogurt Caper Dill Sauce

    Mini salmon burgers are the ultimate for both small and large appetites. Great for little appetites, or two per person as a main course. The cool and creamy yogurt topping is a complementary addition to the smoky glazed salmon.



    Tabasco chipotle sauce is available in grocery stores. Alternatively, mash 1/2 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce until smooth and add 2 tsp (10 mL) to salmon glaze. For tender taste buds, substitute Tabasco with a little honey and Dijon.
