How to make a fish burger .

The burgers are not just for meat, we can also do them in  recipes with fish , which are rich well, I assure you .

A healthy dish for all the nutritional properties that fish gives us and an authentic ‘secret weapon’ to make the little ones in the house eat fish . They are not able to resist the word ‘ hamburger ‘.

For these fish burgers I have chosen white fish , and in particular whiting, which was very well priced at the fish shop. You could make them with other white fish such as hake , sea bass, monkfish, etc.

  2. It is important to crush it with your hands to check that there are no bones left. So then we can eat the hamburger with absolute calm.
  3. Once minced, chop it further with a sharp knife. We reserve in a bowl.
  4. Finely chop the garlic and parsley. Peel the onion and cut into small brunoise.
  5. In a frying pan with a sheet of extra virgin olive oil, put the onion to sauté over medium heat.
  6. Salt lightly. Add the garlic and continue cooking, for a total of 10 minutes, until the onion is soft. We remove and drain the oil.
  7. In the bowl with the fish, add the onion, garlic and parsley. We remove and mix with a fork or with our hands.
  8. A process similar to when we make meatballs, we toss an egg and the grated, mixing everything well until achieving a homogeneous mass that does not remain consistent.
  9. If necessary, add more breadcrumbs to give it the necessary texture.
  10. With our hands, we are making 4 balls of equal size, which will give us one hamburger per person.
  11. On a plate, crush with your hands and give them a rounded shape, just like a meat burger.
  12. To facilitate the task, you can use a round plated ring to shape it.

Final presentation of the fish burgers

  1. In a non-stick frying pan, with a little olive oil, cook the hamburgers round and round. For a couple of minutes on each side, until golden.
  2. We remove and make the assembly with the hamburger bread.
  3. On the slice of bread, the fish on top, and accompany with a slice of natural tomato and arugula. We finish by placing the top cover of the bread.
  4. Some white sauce would be good for these hamburgers, I recommend adding a touch of mayonnaise over the fish . That touch of mayonnaise and garlic goes great with the fish on the burger.
