These Grilled Salmon Burgers with flavors from the warm and beautiful Mediterranean take just a few minutes to throw together, leaving you plenty of time to spend outdoors by the pool with your family and friends. A nice cool glass of Pinot Noir is my favorite wine pairing with these grilled salmon burgers. Gallo Family Vineyard’s Pinot Noir is a medium bodied wine, much less bold than a cabernet, and provides a smooth and light finish with aromas of cherry and sweet fruit flavors.

The weather is incredibly nice right now, but the clock is quickly ticking to when Arizona temperatures will rise from “just hot enough to enjoy the heat on your face,” to "I can’t breathe because it's so stinking hot out!"
So naturally, we spend as much time in the beautiful outdoors as we possibly can right now, soaking up the sun while floating in the pool and, of course, barbecuing something delicious on the grill. Hands down, my favorite things to grill are seafood and vegetables of all kinds.
These salmon burgers go from ordinary to extraordinary when you throw them on the grill. Gallo Family Vineyard’s Pinot Noir brings out the fresh tarragon and earthy char flavors while the cool, creamy tzatziki with dill and cucumbers balances out the heat.
If you're looking for a change from the usual burgers, steak or chicken, these Grilled Mediterranean Salmon Burgers paired with Gallo Family Vineyard’s Pinot Noir will put your summer barbecue in the spotlight.
For dessert, keep it simple with ripe, juicy grilled peaches and a glass of chilled Gallo Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc which has the fruity flavors of honeydew melon, citrus and ripe apple, providing a light and crisp finish.
You might think that a white wine would pair well with salmon but it's not necessarily so. Grilling the dense fish over hot flames creates a smokey char flavor that pairs perfectly with Pinot Noir's fruity yet earthy undertones. This salmon burger, hot off the grill with its fresh herbs and a bit of cool tzatziki, will leave you thirsting for a glass of Gallo Family's Pinot Noir.
