Cheat's Fish Burgers – Another Whirl

Carole's Chatter: Cheat's Fish Burgers – Another Whirl

I felt like a fish burger, and, no I didn't send the better half off to Maccas (which is what we call McDonalds in the antipodes).  We had some snap frozen pre-crumbed fish fillets in the freezer.  They were hoki fillets with a lemon pepper crumb.  I just looked hoki up on Wikipedia so I could tell you what sort of fish it is, and what do you know, it is used by McDonalds in their Filet o Fish in the States!  You can only get it in Australian and New Zealand waters.  Other names for hoki include Blue Grenadier and Blue Hake.

You can fry the frozen fillets but I prefer them baked in the oven.  I do them for a bit longer than it says on the packet – don't you find they usually understate cooking times?

So I had some baps left from when I did my Sloppy Josephines.  I just cut them diagonally.

I popped a cabbage leaf square into each bap as a sort of shelf.  I prepared some thinly sliced radish, chilli and tomato.

I made a sauce with some leftover garlic butter, crème fraiche, chopped capers, mayo, lemon juice, chilli jam and salt and pepper.  Just mixed it all up – no cooking.

When the fish was cooked I only had to do a quick assembly job – very easy and better, in my opinion, than what we could have bought ready made. 


  1. They look good...and the sauce is one I will hve to try...
