For the salmon burgers, preheat grill to medium and lightly oil grill grate. Finely chop about half of the salmon. In a food processor, process the remaining half until it’s not quite pureed. Combine both chopped salmon and blended salmon in a large bowl. Add chia seed, paprika, oregano, pepper, garlic powder, salt, and cayenne. Add in the egg and use hands to work spices and egg into salmon mixture. Form into 8 patties about 1/2 inch thick. Grill until just cooked through and no longer translucent in the center, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. For the avocado creme, combine avocado, yogurt, lime juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth and well blended. Serve the burgers topped with avocado crema and enjoy!
