Smoked Salmon Burger (Tomato, Red Onion and Avocado)

“The Jun-Aug Icelandic fishing season begins in a few days & this versatile recipe by Dumont Monte from his cookbook simply titled *Salmon* will be among the 1st I try when our supply of smoked salmon is replenished in our freezer. While not a burger in the traditional sense as it is not cooked -- it is definitely an easy-fix that is ideal for light lunch fare & is ingredient-friendly for a to-go occasion, camping or fishing trip + cold food patio party. As written, the recipe gives both metric + US measurements & I entered it that way as well. (This is a *No Cook* recipe, but 15 min was allowed for ingredient prep & 5 min for assembly) *Enjoy* !”
