Australian Style Fish Burgers

Friends, in honor of Australia day coming up tomorrow, I’m whipping up another flavorful fish recipe for you all today. This time it’s my flavorful fish burgers, an epic recipe that combines the goodness of a burger with a healthy fish filling. I’ll also be showing you how to whip up a mayo-like yoghurt sauce, and how I like to stack my burger. Hope you enjoy!

What makes this Fish Burgers recipe healthy?

Unlike your typical juicy hamburger, fish burgers are loaded with skin boosting omega-3 fatty acids, clean protein, antioxidants, healthy fats, and MORE. Use any kind of buns that suit your liking, dairy-free yoghurt as an alternative if you’d like this one to be dairy-free, and any kind of tender white fish you have on hand for the filling.

What makes this Fish Burgers recipe easy?

We’re taking out the sometimes-added step of cooking our fish before we cook our burgers. So you’re only cooking everything once, which ensures a super tender burger that isn’t overdone.

We’re also making this easy by using yoghurt as the base of our sauce, and not adding too many unnecessary ingredients. You can customize this one with whatever herbs and spices you have on hand, if you’re not a fan of coriander then parsley would be a great option here too!
