Salmon Burger With Cocktail Sauce#FishFriday

I am big fan of fish burger, love the McDonald's Filet O Fish. When we visited Ice Land I ordered a big fat salmon fish burger. I went to take a bite the fish filet just slides from the bun to the ground ( can't forget the incident), I cried, but ordered a another one and enjoyed having it.😂 
Making this salmon fish burger was a real pleasure. This is a perfect and filling meal for one. It's so satisfying to have a crispy fat fish burger, freshly made with fresh ingredients.

Serves One

150 Grams Boneless & Skinless Salmon - cut into small cubes
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
1 Green Chilly - minced
A few drops of Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Fresh Bread Crumbs
1 Teaspoon Chopped Flat Parsley
1 Teaspoon Chopped Coriander leaves
¼ Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Scallions- only white part - finely chopped
A Dash Black Pepper powder
A Dash Paprika powder
1 Small Clove Garlic - finely chopped
Sea Salt to taste
For the coating
Rice Flour or Corn Flour - I used rice flour
Panko Breadcrumbs as required
1 Small Egg - lightly beaten
Oil as required for frying
For the Cocktail Sauce
2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Hot Sauce
A Dash Lemon juice
1 Teaspoon Chopped Coriander leaves or Parsley
1 Teaspoon Finely Chopped Gherkins/Pickled Cucumber
1 Teaspoon Finely Chopped Dill Leaves
2 Leaves Romaine Lettuce
Sliced Tomato and Cucumber
In a chopper add the onion, parsley, coriander leaves, green chilly, salt,, paprika and pepper powder, mayonnaise and bread crumbs, salmon cubes and pulse it two or three times ( the salmon should be in tiny cubes). Take this out into a bowl and add the lemon juice, mix well and refrigerate it for at least 2 hours for the flavors to develop and also at this stage it is difficult to handle. The mix will firm up in the fridge.
Remove from fridge and form into patty. Roll in rice flour and keep this in the freezer for 15 minutes only. 
Heat a non-stick pan/skillet with oil.
Beat an egg lightly add a pinch of salt.
In a plate spread the panko bread crumbs. Keep aside .
Take the cake out from the freezer.
Dip the cake in egg. Roll it in bread crumbs and immediately place it in the frying pan. Fry on medium high heat till golden on both sides, frying for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, adjusting the heat if necessary. Turn and cook until the other side is browned, Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess oil.
For the sauce
Mix all ingredients well sauce is ready. Keep this in the refrigerator to chill.
Arrange the buns, cut-side up, on a grill pan an toast them well for about one to two minutes. Apply cocktail sauce on both sides.  
Arrange the lettuce leaves, tomato slices. Then salmon patty on the bun; top with sauce, pickled gherkins and romaine lettuce,
sliced tomato and cucumber, with a sliced of cheddar cheese and some more sauce.

  2. The McD's in Iceland serve Salmon Fish Fillet sandwiches?!! I'm so jealous....glad to have this recipe so I can make my own.

  3. I love a good fish sandwich and think your salmon burger looks lightyears better than a Mickey D’s fish filet. Even though their is still good!

  4. This is a much happier ending than your tale of the filet o fish! It sounds delicious.
