FISH BURGER / +VEGAN RECIPE: LENTIL BURGER (APRIL MENU)


WIKI NOTE: The term "hamburger" originally derives from Hamburg, Germany city. Hamburger in German is the demonym of Hamburg, similar to frankfurter and wiener, names for other meat-based foods and demonyms of the cities of Frankfurt and Vienna respectively. The term "burger" eventually became a suffix back-formation that is associated with many different types of sandwiches, similar to a (ground meat) hamburger, but made of different meats such as buffalo in the buffalo burger, venison, kangaroo, turkey, elk, lamb or fish like salmon in the salmon burger, but even with meatless sandwiches as is the case of the veggie burger.

FISH BURGER 

YOU WILL NEED: *vegan recipe replace fish burger for lentil burger recipe
Several slices of hake (white fish) or salmon, as required
1 large potato or a couple of medium potatoes
A quarter of onion or a handful of chives
A handful of black olives
A handful of parsley
Black pepper, to taste
Salt, to taste
2 whole eggs
Wheat flour (plain or all-purpose), to dip in batter
Bread crumbs, to dip in batter
Olive oil, to fry


LET´S COOK!
1. Peel the potatoes. Cut it into thick slices (approx. 2cm). Wash the fish well.
2. Boil a pot of salted water. Add the thick slices of potato. When the potato is almost cooked, add the slices of fish. Wait for a while (approx. 5 minutes), the slices of potato and the slices of fish will be well cooked.
3. Remove the pot from heat and strain the potato and fish.
4. Smash the cooked potato pieces with a fork in a bowl.
5. Crumble the slices of fish. Be careful to remove the fish bones. Add it into the bowl with the potato.
6. Chop the black olives, onion and parsley. Fry the onions until transparent.
7. Add the fried onions, black olives and parsley into the bowl with the potato and fish. Beat an egg and add it into the bowl (optional). Mix everything well. Add salt / black pepper, to taste.
8. Divide the mix into small balls (approx. the size of a golf ball). Flatten each ball to get a burger shape.
9. Beat an egg in a bowl. Put the flour in a plate/bowl. Put the breadcrumbs in a different plate/bowl. First, cover the meatballs with the flour. Second, dip them into the beaten egg. Third, coat them with the breadcrumbs. It is a triple action. 
NOTE: If you make lots of burgers, you can freeze them. It is always a good moment for homemade fish fingers.
10. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan. Fry the burgers, one by one, until golden brown on each side. Remove it from the pan and drain it with kitchen towels.
11. Serve it like a burger (lettuce, tomato, cheese, ketchup, mayonnaise) with some fresh veggies and chips.
NOTE: homemade mayonnaise recipe / + vegan: egg-free mayonnaise
