Fish burger with aioli

Jump to Recipe

I lOVE burgers but not so much the heavy feeling afterwards. If you are the same, then I recommend you to try this Fish burger with aioli as it is VERY LIGHT in flavour!

For this fish burger recipe I am using cod. But any thicker piece of white fish will work.

What gives this fish burger with cod fish so much flavour is the coating on the fish. That little bit of mustard and mayo make all the difference. And if you have, I would HIGHLY recommend you use panko breadcrumbs for this fish burger. Panko adds more crunch and makes the food visually more appealing!

This fish burger recipe easy is so versatile too. You can dress the burger any way you like. I prefer the combination from the recipe. And for me, cutting icebergs salad makes a HUGE difference in how the burger tastes. It is just like different shapes of pasta taste different, even though its still pasta. But, try it and let me know if you agree!

What is great about this how to make fish burger at home is that you are using whole fillet of fish. This adds another interesting texture to the dish.

This is a very easy how to make fish burger from scratch. And If you want more recipes like these then leave me a comment and let me know!
