About this recipe: I found fish fillets on offer on a day that we all were in the mood for burgers, so we made fish burgers. They were moist and delicious, and with all the trimmings of a burger, we were more than happy!

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 240 C / Gas 9. Grease a large, flat dish with a little oil.
  2. Cut the fish fillet into four large pieces. Put the spring onions and 3 slices wholemeal bread in a food processor or blender and whiz to make coarse crumbs. Add the fish and pulse for a few seconds to chop roughly. Add the egg, dill and lemon zest, and season with salt and pepper, then pulse briefly to mix - do not over-process.
  3. Turn the mixture into a bowl, mix it together by hand and divide into four. Shape into soft balls, put in the baking dish and press out into 10cm round burgers. Brush with a little olive oil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 15 minutes. Serve in the buns, with lettuce, cucumber, tomato and lemon mayonnaise.


You can use any firm-fleshed fish for these burgers. Use what's on offer to save money. Salmon also works well.
