Hamburgers doesn’t have to be heavy, greasy and unhealthy. You can make them both delicious, a little lighter and healthier. You know sometimes your in the mood for something burger-like, but you don’t want a hamburger that is dripping in fat, puts you in a food coma and just is too heavy (even though those hamburgers are super delicious as well). Sometimes you just crave something tasty, fresh and a little lighter, but you still want that hamburger feeling. Thats when you should try to make this asian inspired fish burger. The fish patty is very tasty, flavorful and spicy (the amount of heat can be adapted according to taste). It feels fresh yet you get that meaty feeling from eating a patty. It is served with a fresh and a little spicy coleslaw, topped with sliced cucumber and a fresh yogurt dip. And then of course, sweet potato fries on the side! It’s perfect to make when you want something tasty and flavorful yet light and fresh. This dish is both gluten and grain free.

A few tips:

  • When you have run the fish in the food processor make sure to squeeze as much water from the mixture as you can. Otherwise the patties might turn out a little wet and tasteless.
  • The amount of spices can be adapted according to taste. Start by adding a little first and then check the fish mixture to see if more seasoning is needed.
  • These patties can be baked in the oven or pan fried. (I used the oven). Either way, make sure not to overtake/fry them. You want them to just be done and not to get dry and boring.
  • Slice the cucumber just when 2 minutes of the cooking time remains for the fish patties. It should be freshly sliced and crunchy. If you prepare it too long in advance it might get soggy.
