Cod burger with spicy sauce and cucumber Directions
- Create the sauce by mixing the mayonnaise with ketchup, lime juice and chili powder or cayenne pepper. Taste, adjust with more spice and set aside.
- Using the fork or hands divide the cod fillets into smaller pieces. Add salt, pepper, turmeric and paprika and mix well.
- Add the egg and breadcrumbs and mix again. If necessary add some breadcrumbs, the patty should be easy to handle but not too dry.
- Create about 4 - 6 burgers and cook on medium heat, in a lightly grased non-stick frying pan, for about 6 - 8 minutes on each side (depends on how thick your fish burgers are).
