White Burger – Cod for Dinner

October 30th, 2009 / Comments 2

On a rainy autumn evening, a burger and fries and a favorite Hitchcock film is perfection. The movie may be Rear Window, Dial M for Murder or The Man who Knew Too Much and the burger may be red meat, poultry or fish.

Yep, a FISH burger! Made with minced cod, this burger is delicious, an excellent low-calorie source of protein, a good source of omega – 3 fatty acids, a good source vitamin B12 and B6, and niacin. When you taste it, you will forget the health benefits and simply enjoy dinner and the movie.  Here’s how I did it.

Cod Burger

I sautéed, over medium heat, two stalks of celery, diced, and one medium onion, diced, in a tablespoon of butter until the onion was translucent and then cooled it to room temperature.  While that cooked, I cut a one pound filet of cod into quarter inch dice and added to the fish a handful of panko (about a quarter of a cup), one egg, a teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning, two tablespoons of mayonnaise, a squeeze of lemon juice, half a teaspoon of salt and five grinds of pepper and the now cool, sautéed celery and onion.

I shaped the fish mixture into six burgers and coated the burgers with more panko.   After cooking for five minutes on each side in a mixture of vegetable oil and butter the burgers were golden brown.  Served with a green salad and oven fries, dinner and the movie were perfect.

Notes: Plain or seasoned bread crumbs can be substituted for panko (Japanese bread crumbs); you can substitute herbs, hot sauce or spices for the Old Bay Seasoning; be bold at the fish market, salmon burgers are great as are haddock burgers; and, of course the movie selection is totally up to you.

Experiment and share your success here!
