Fishburger Prepare Deliciously

is a chef, food photographer, cookbook author and blogger.
Here he shares recipes, answers cooking questions and helps with cooking.

Today I’ll show you my Fishburger Recipe. The delicious fish between warm bread roll slices gets along without breadcrumbs.

Because salmon is sooo popular I have decided for a salmon fillet! Captain’n Iglo becomes pale with envy…

The first fast food experiences are very different. With me the powerful sauces got stuck in the culinary memory.

Because there are better things, I always work on the sauces and give you the ideas gladly further 🙂

Maybe I can seduce you to cook yourself. I wish you a lot of fun and good luck in your kitchen!

Ingredients fish burger
The ingredients for the delicious, homemade burger at a glance.

Prepare ingredients

Overview of ingredients: buns, salmon, lettuce, white onion, white sauce + curry and honey, cress.

Burger sauce white instead of mayo
A homemade, light burger sauce tastes finer and lighter than a sauce with mayonnaise.

Prepare sauce

First mix the ingredients for the sauce.

If you want two different sauces, put some white sauce aside and mix the rest with honey and curry.

Finely chopped onion slices
Onions while cutting on the kitchen board. Thin slices are better than thick slices!

Put the buns in the oven and heat them at 140°C hot air.

3. Make your Own Patty for Fish Burger

The culinary seduction begins now…

Today I don’t make patties but fry slices of fresh salmon fillet.

For patties made with ground fish, you can stop by the fish meatball recipe.

Why make patties? Freshly fried, the fish tastes much better!

It is best to buy fresh salmon fillets, let frozen fish fillets thaw slowly.

Place the fillets in the foil in cold water or defrost the packed fillets overnight in the refrigerator.

Many people want variety on their plates at home. So this variation is just the thing!

Treat yourself to a brilliant burger with fresh ingredients!

4. Sauces for Fish Burgers make yourself

The well-known originals from the fast food counter almost always taste very much like mayonnaise.

You can quickly prepare the sauces yourself, I’ll describe that to you very briefly now…

Make your own burger sauces… Tastes better!

Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt

In another contribution I show you easy made barbecue sauces.

Cut the cauliflower into florets
Cold grill sauces I show you at another place, it is worth to have a look!

4.1 Light Sauce with Curry as Mayo Substitute

“Burger duty” for me is at least a homemade sauce.

Today we make a cold curry cream.

Please try this sauce, it tastes sooo delicious!

Cold curry sauce:

For this I use…

The exact quantities can be found in the recipe below.

The creamy curry sauce with honey goes perfectly with fish.

4.2 Alternatively prepare a white Sauce

Now it becomes quite simple… I am known for my variant kitchen 🙂

Voilá, your mayonnaise substitute sauce is quickly ready!

Says Chef Thomas Sixt

Before you add curry and honey to the white sauce, you can pour half of it into an extra bowl.

5. Gourmet Tip… Use Brioche Buns!

The fish tolerates a light and pleasant roll or bun.

Brioche buns are perfect here, please write them on the shopping list!

Bun Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt

I warm the fine yeast dough buns at 140°C hot air in the oven.
