#CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (2024)

Jump to Recipe -

It’s getting California Avocado crazy around here as Dara and I prepare for the biggest avocado party of the year! We’re both happily knee deep in avocado recipes, trying to come up with some of the best avocado recipes to tempt your tastebuds. The California Avocado 4th of July Blast is right around the corner and we can’t wait to see your recipes!

Remember to come back for our recipe link up party June 27th through July 4th. Share your favorite California avocado recipes for a chance to win over $1600 in prizes! (Complete details can be found on this post).

In the meantime, Dara and I are whipping up some recipes highlighting the freshness and delicious flavor of California Avocados. The Avocado Smoothie I made last week was incredible and it has made multiple appearances at our house since trying it the first time.

For this go around, I wanted to whip up something that would be a great addition to our upcoming July 4th festivities. Everyone knows you can’t have a great cookout without burgers, right? I decided to take a twist on the traditional burger and created a seafood version – Salmon Sliders with a Tangy Avocado Sauce. This is one recipe that explodes with fresh flavor and is perfect for your next gathering or for a quick, weeknight dinner.

Dara’s Chilled California Avocado Soup with Coconut Milk is another wonderful recipe for the summer months. Talk about avocado nirvana. Yum!

We hope you’ll join us starting June 27th for the California Avocado 4th of July Blast! I can’t wait to celebrate together!

PS… thanks, Mom, for the inspiration for this recipe!

    This looked so good that i made them the day i saw them. And the were awesome as sliders!! The following day i served the salmon cakes on top of salad greens drizzled a little of the avocado sauce and some lemon and made a perfect lunch salad. And oh…..I like spicy so i added a touch of cayenne to the avocado sauce and used greek yogurt instead of sour cream since i was out. Thanks for the recipe.

    • #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (47)Kristen says

      Thanks for letting me know! I thought some hot sauce or “spice” would be a perfect addition!

    Hello, I made the avacado sauce last Saturday for a BBQ. We put it over a grilled salmon fillet. Someone else was doing sliders so we held off on that.

    It was delicious. Thank you for sharing.

      You are too sweet – thank you 🙂

  26. #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (57)Stephanie says

    I just found these on pinterest and will be making them Wednesday for dinner! I have a question though: have you ever saved the avocado sauce, and if you have does it keep well? There are only 2 of us eating, but I love having leftovers the next day to send to work with my hubby. I hate browning avocados though (they seem even grosser now that I’m pregnant!).

    • #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (58)Kristen says

      Hi Stephanie –
      Thanks so much… you’ll love these little sliders!
      I made the sauce the night before, refrigerated it and we had it with lunch the next day. It worked perfectly 🙂
      Enjoy!

  27. #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (59)Sarah @ Well Dined says

    Oh my gosh – these were SO GOOD! I made them full sized and it made four patties. Awesome – thank you.

  28. #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (60)natasha says

    Hello!
    I’m brazilian, currently living in Canada and i really love your blog!

  29. #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (61)heather says

    I just made these, but burger size. I subded the mayo for Greek yogurt and used low-fat sour cream. The avocado sauce was good but the patties kinda plain….like they needed mote flavor or spice. Next time I make them I’m gonna try a spicy pepper or something. They taste as if the cool sauce should cool the patties.

  30. #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (62)Des @ Life's Ambrosia says

    These look absolutely fantastic and perfect for summer. Then again, anything with avocado is perfect in my opinion. 🙂

  31. #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (64)pas cher magasin sac à main says

    Mi nur faris ĉi tiuj, sed burger grandeco. Mi subded la mayo por grekaj jogurto kaj uzis malalta-dika acida kremo. La avokado saŭco estas bona sed la patties kinda ebenajxo …. kiel ili bezonis lignereton gusto aŭ spico. Venontfoje mi faras ilin, ke mi baldaŭ provos pika pipro aŭ io. Ili gustumas kvazaŭ la malvarmeta saŭco devas malvarmigi la patties.

    Does the vinegar in the recipe curdle the milk?

    • #CaAvoBlast Recipe: Salmon Sliders with Tangy Avocado Sauce (66)Kristen says

      It didn’t mine, and with the other ingredients mixed in with it, I don’t think it should. Thanks!
