- If you read my blog regularly, you'll notice that I frequently utilize pollock fish in my dishes. Furthermore, I frequently prepare them. I like to use them since they're cheap, meaty, and smell and taste like salted codfish.
- Cut each pollock fish fillet into four pieces on a cutting board. Combine them with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor. (sweet pepper, eggs, yogurt, complete seasoning, garlic, onion, thyme, pineapple, ketchup, jerk seasoning, and bread crumb.)
- Pulse all ingredients in the processor until they are equally ground. I used yogurt not only for added flavor to the patties, but also to keep them super moist and juicy.
- Form patties with a diameter of 3 inches and a thickness of 1 inch. Place on wax paper and aside for 10 minutes to relax. I used a coffee cover (3x1 inches) I had at home to assist produce properly formed patties.
- The pollock fish patties can be prepared in three different ways.(1) Cook for 15 minutes at 400 °F in an air fryer.(2) In a cast-iron or nonstick pan, the fish patties may be shallow fat fried. Gently place patties in hot vegetable oil and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
- (3) In this recipe, though, I used a convertible griddle/grill. Heat a cast-iron indoor grill/griddle over medium heat for 2 minutes on the stovetop. Using a pastry brush, grease the surface with vegetable oil. Place the fish patties on the heated griddle with care. Sear and cook each fish patty until golden brown on both sides.
Let's Layer The Fish Burger
- On the grill, warm each burger bun. You can use whatever you like to stack each fish burger. My favorite toppings for a burger are lettuce, tomato, and cheese. I also like to top it with a slice of fresh grilled pineapple. However, to help balance the heat, I added it to the fish patties instead.
- Because I don't eat mayonnaise, I made a tasty mixture of tomato ketchup and mustard. Use a spoon to smear as much as you want onto the bottom bun.
- Add the cooked fish patties, followed by a slice of cheese, tomato, and lettuce.
- If desired, top the cooked fish patties with cheese while they are still hot on the grill to melt for 1-2 minutes.
- This recipe serves about 8 people. Each burger contains one to two fish patties.
