Was something left out? What's the "white mixture"?

White mixture is rather a confusing statement but...I think it means egg white.  Because the instructions say to combine the first four ingredients...and all that would be left is the egg white...

Sometimes (all too often) ingredients are omitted from published recipes. Cookbook reader that I am, I see it time and time again. "Add this mixture to..." is frequently a clue to this, where only one ingredient is shown.

"White mixture" indicates that there's something blended in with the egg white.
I guess readers will have to improvise, as I usually do.

I think if I were improvising, I'd mix all these ingredients together and then see if the patty I'm
forming seems like it's going to hold together before placing it on a grill.  If it seems too flimsy,
like it might fall through the grate, I think I'd add a little rice flour as a binder.  There's a fine
line between keeping a burger moist when it contains very little fat and having it totally fall to
pieces.

Look at this recipe for salmon burgers...it's got bread crumbs, olive oil....looks so much more
appealing to me.  I'd rather improvise with this recipe.

And here's another recipe using fresh salmon. Notice it contains bread....So this tells me that salmon
burgers require some kind of binder.

Thanks, Chloe.
I notice that the two recipes you offer also evade the grill.

Your concerns are well-founded, and your recipes confirm it:
If you want a grilled salmon "burger", grill a whole filet and slap it on a toasted bun, lest you be picking fish and veggies out of your coals/pit and off of your grate.

I'm not particularly fond of using a grill in general...the glycation issue and my husband is a Warrior nonnie with a SWAMI focusing on glycation...so grilling isn't something I'd do very often.  And you're right, a whole filet on a grill is easier to manage, less likely to fall to pieces. I have a grill "plate" that goes on top of a gas or open fire grill....flat with small holes.  You're essentially using the heat of the grill without exposing all the flesh to direct flames...but the flavor of the grill permeates the meat.  Good for grilling veggies and fruit too. Pineapple, plums and peaches are especially delicious cooked on a grill....and they go great with grilled fish.  

But I think if I were to be making a salmon burger, I'd be more likely to cook it on the stove top  in a pan...with a little bit of EVOO....Or put it on an oiled cookie sheet and bake it in the oven.
