Recipe Info

  • Servings : 4
  • Cook Time : 12m
  • Ready In : 12m


  • 450g white fish fillets
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 340g potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1⁄4 cup Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1⁄4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Olive oil, for frying burgers
  • 4 hamburger buns, halved
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled into ribbons
  • 8 fancy lettuce leaves
  • 1⁄2 red onion, sliced into rings
  • Handful of rocket


Step 1

Add about 4 cups of water to a medium to large saucepan (you need enough water to cover and poach the fish). Add the rosemary sprigs and bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, remove the rosemary. Add the fish and reduce heat to a simmer. Poach until just cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Step 2

Strain fish and transfer to a large bowl. Flake with a fork. Add the mashed potatoes, parsley and Parmesan cheese. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Divide the mixture into 6 balls and shape into 6 patties. Coat the patties in the beaten egg and then dredge in bread crumbs.

Step 4

Add oil to a frying pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, fry the burgers until golden brown on each side, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the burgers to the kitchen paper to remove excess oil.

Step 5

Serve the fish burgers in buns with the lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onion and rocket.
