Lemon Pepper Fish Burgers

These delicious burgers are a great homemade takeaway. Get the kids to help prepare the tangy mayo and the salad bits and you will have dinner on the table in no time. Serve burgers with a few crunchy golden potato wedges to seal the deal.

  • 1½ cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 4 fish fillets
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 sourdough buns or similar
  • ½ cup thick and creamy mayonnaise
  • 2 gherkins, finely diced
  • 1 tsp capers
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 handfuls mesclun lettuce
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • ¼ red cabbage, finely sliced
  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  (Pop the wedges in first to start cooking.)
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, lemon pepper seasoning and salt. Dip each fillet in the beaten egg first, then coat with the flavoured crumbs.
  3. Lay the fillets on a lined baking tray and spray with oil.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on the fillet size until they are golden and can be flaked in the thickest part. Toast the buns if desired.
  5. For the tangy mayo, combine the mayonnaise, gherkins, capers and mustard, and mix.
  6. Combine the mesclun with the carrot and red cabbage and toss with a little olive oil and lemon juice or your favourite dressing.
  7. Spread the buns generously with the flavoured mayonnaise and top with salad and fish.
  8. Serve with extra mayo and lemon or limes on the side.
