  • Flip the burgers and brush with teriyaki sauce.
  • Close the grill, and cook until the patties are just cooked, about 4 minutes.

In the meantime, grill the pineapple slices.

  • Place pineapple slices on oiled grates; brush with teriyaki sauce and grill for 5 minutes.
  • Flip the pineapple slices, brush again with teriyaki sauce, and continue to grill for 4 minutes.

Prepare the Sauce.

  • In a mixing bowl combine yogurt, sriracha, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper; mix until smooth.

Build your burger.

  • Beginning with the bottom bun, spread a tablespoon of sriracha yogurt sauce, top with salmon, add a pineapple slice, lettuce, onion, tablespoon of sriracha yogurt sauce again, and top it off with your toasted top bun.
  • Serve.
