Easy cod burgers recipe, cod fishcakes are flavored with veggies and aromatic herbs, flavorful and moist, delicious in sandwiches and sliders or simply served with a salad and chips!
In Summer I like my burgers lighter and making them with fish or seafood is absolutely delicious.
Cod is perfect for fish cakes, it is flaky and mild, all the aromatics mixed in the patties bring it to another level of flavors, my husband and son gave me a special mention for them.
I like to serve these cod burgers with a quick tartare sauce made of well seasoned mayo with chopped chive and dill pickles.
Check the recipe for my dinner rolls/burger buns here, for burger buns follow the instructions and flatten the buns to 1 inch thick before the second rise.
These cod patties are delicious in burgers but also simply served with a side of salad and chips.
1.5 pound (700 g.) cod fillet, fresh or frozen
1 red bell pepper, diced in small cubes
1/2 yellow onion, diced in small cubes
Salt and pepper to taste
A pinch of Cayenne
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp dry basil or 10 fresh leaves, chopped
1 tsp thyme
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Some olive oil for cooking
1 1/2 cup mayo
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of Cayenne
1/4 cup chive, chopped
2 to 3 pickles, thinly chopped
If using frozen cod, thaw completely and pat dry with a few kitchen towels, Thaw the shrimp under cold water (about 15/20 minutes) or overnight, pat dry. Chop the cod with a sharp kitchen knife, cut your cod in strips, 3 strips out of a fillet, cut the strips in chunks and then bang the chunks into small pieces, add the cod mash to a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use
In a medium frying pan, heat some olive oil and fry the chopped bell pepper and onion until soft, season right away with salt and pepper to taste, set aside to cool
Add the veggies to the bowl of cod, add the spices, olive oil, herbs, egg, breadcrumbs and stir thoroughly until all the ingredients are incorporated, you can microwave 5 seconds a tsp of cod mix, taste and adjust seasoning, chill at least 30 minutes so all the flavors can meld and the breadcrumbs are softened
In the meantime, make the tartar sauce, add 1 1/2 cup mayo to a bowl, season it with black pepper, a pinch of Cayenne, a pinch of salt, 1/4 cup chopped chives and a few chopped dill pickles
Form your patties with a large ice cream scoop, very handy to make them even, form balls pressing them well between your hands, flatten them with a large spatula, pan fry 4 minutes on each side or until golden and crisp
Serve in burgers, the recipe for my burger buns is here or enjoy with a salad and chips
