Blended burgers are an on-trend way of cutting back on animal proteins. Typically, finely chopped mushrooms replace about one-third of the ground meat to create a patty that’s lower in fat but still moist and flavorful. Jehangir Mehta, chef at Graffiti restaurant in New York City, took the idea one step further by combining fresh mushrooms with salmon and spices to create a blended fish burger.


Pickled shiitakes
6 jalapenos, sliced
1/2 cup mirin
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
