Weeknight Dinner: Spicy Fish Burgers with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Print Friendly and PDF
After I made one of my now-favorite dishes, Skinny Fish & Chips for the first time, I started thinking about other ways to incorporate fish into fun new inventive ways.  At the end of this week, I am on my way to Europe again for 5 days for work.  So what better time to introduce my spicy fish burgers and homemade tartar sauce than right now?!

The euro being low has had an inverse price on airplane tickets.  My ticket was so expensive, it just didn't make good financial sense for John to come along.  So he will get to hang out at home and I will be back just in time for the 4th.

We are all about the indoor grill pans this month.  Basically, if the oven has to go on, we try to avoid it.  I've even gotten great at making pizza on the grill pan.  Ideally for John, the air conditioning would run 24/7 and keep a bubble around him at a cool 65 degrees F.  Anything above that and, well, let's just say he needs a shower.  So, it's with that in mind that I've been taking some of our favorite oven-meals and making them grill friendly!  
Spicy Fish Burgers with Homemade Tartar Sauce

1 cup breadcrumbs
4 hamburger buns (we used Sandwich Thins)

Homemade Tartar Sauce
Homemade Mayonnaise (or light mayonnaise)
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 dill pickles, finely diced

Burgers:  Roughly chop the fish into small pieces.  In a large bowl combine fish, lemon zest and juice, jalapenos, shallot, egg, pepper, salt, and breadcrumbs.  Mix well.  Form into 4 patties and place in the fridge, at least 30 minutes or overnight.  Remove the burgers from the fridge and place on a well-greased grill over medium-high heat.  Cook 3-4 minutes, per side.   Place on hamburger buns with Tartar Sauce.

Tartar Sauce:  In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon, and pickles.  Serve immediately.
