Redfin Burgers - Didn't scoff them down before taking pic's

#1 Post by sainoq » Mon Apr 24, 2017 9:34 am

Hello All

Managed a few photos before and after:

Here is the cleaned redfin, the larger plate ended up cooked dusted with flour with chips for dinner, smaller plate went on to make 4 burgers for lunch.

Ingredients for the patties:

about 400g redfin (this was 397g)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground ginger powder
1 1/2 to 2 tsp chili flakes
2 tsp soy sauce
salt and pepper
2 1/2 tbl cornflour (one lot of 1 tablespoon for processor, rest after)
1 egg

Method:
Chop the fish into small chunks and put into food processor.
Add the garlic, ginger, chili, soy, salt and pepper and 1 tablespoon of the cornflour.
blend for very short amount of time, the fish should still be a bit chunky, not turned into a mush.
Put into a bowl, add the egg and rest of the cornflour and mix.
Using hands make 4 patties
cook in fry pan/bbq flat plate.

Assemble with what ever buns/toppings for fish burgers you like, I use brioche buns (found just in bread isle nothing from bakery) and cheese with bit of mayo for these ones, usually also like some lettuce but this time forgot to buy some.

Server with chips

**NOTE** Have not tried this with any other fish, but would imagine would turn out good with any white flesh fish.

Cheers sainoq! I used your inspiration to make up some burgers tonight. I don't like to listen to most people when they say they don't like eating this fish or that fish. I think we are particularly spoilt for choice in Australia. On my trip to Victoria over Christmas I landed a few redfin and had a try, they were great! Recently I decided to try some catfish instead of throwing them back. So many people don't like the idea of eating them, and others say they have eaten heaps. I fried some up last week and they were really good. And actually really easy to fillet!

I caught a few catties last night and kept the fillets and used your recipe base (modified slightly). Burgers went down a treat with the wife and kids. I'm sure I will be doing it again!

Thanks for the inspiration.

haha, love the catfish burger pic.

were they the eeltail catfish? I read they are nice to eat, but in NSW can not keep them unless in particular lakes/dams, none to be kept from rivers.
(this may have changed recently but last year when checked that was the case)

glad could give some inspiration :grin:
