  • 400 gram firm white fish fillet large
  • 1 cup bread crumbs toasted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp Best Foods mayonnaise
  • 4 burger buns
  • 4 slices cheese

Tartare sauce

  • 1/2 cup Best Foods mayonnaise
  • 1-2 whole pickles diced
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • pinch of sugar and salt
  • splash of pickle juice

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. While heating up, toast breadcrumbs until golden.

  2. Cut fish fillets into squares, approximately the size of the burger buns.

  3. Whisk together egg, flour, salt, pepper, and Best Foods mayonnaise.

  4. Dredge each fillet in the egg mixture, then coat with breadcrumbs.

  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until crumb is golden. You can test one piece by inserting a fork, the fish should flake easily.

  6. While the fish cooks, prepare the tartare sauce by mixing all sauce ingredients together. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly.

  7. Turn off oven, place a slice of cheese over each piece of fish. Return to oven for a minute to allow the residual heat to melt the cheese.

  8. Slice open the burger buns and warm in the oven at the same time.

  9. Assemble with the tartare sauce on the top bun.
