The most flavorful fish burger that is also the most easy. These tilapia burgers are gluten-free, low carb and freeze really well. A healthy fish sandwich that is served with the best homemade tartar sauce recipe.
This is one of my favorite, ‘old’ recipes from 2014 that I updated with new images and a video.
Fresh lemon and dill pair so well with any seafood. These are the predominant flavors going on this tilapia sandwich, but not so much so this mildly flavored fish doesn’t get overpowered.
Tilapia is a firm, mild flavored fish and the firmness makes it perfect for making into burgers. The same flavors used are carried over in a delicious tartar sauce to spread on the burgers with capers, dill pickles, fresh dill and lemon zest.
I mixed store-bought coleslaw blend with the tartar sauce for a wonderful crunchy topping or side.
There are no breadcrumbs or egg that you would usually find as binder in crab/fish cakes in this burger making them gluten-free and low carb (if you omit the bun, of course). Instead, part of the fish is blended into a paste with Dijon mustard which serves as the ‘glue’ to hold them together.
Freezing Fish Burgers
These tilapia burgers freeze really well. Best when individually wrapped well in plastic wrap and stored in a sealed container so you can defrost as many or as little as you need.
Defrost in the fridge overnight and cook according to the recipe.
