How to Make It

Step 1    Make the kofta

In a food processor, pulse the fish until chopped and chunky. Scrape into a bowl, add all of the remaining ingredients and mix well. Form into eight 6-inch-long cylinders and refrigerate on a parchment-lined baking sheet for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2    Make the glaze

In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients except the canola oil, buns and slaw.

Step 3    

Light a grill. Brush the kofta with 2 tablespoons of canola oil. Grill over moderate heat until golden, about 8 minutes. Cover and grill over low heat, brushing with the glaze and turning occasionally, until cooked through, about 15 minutes more. Serve the kofta in the hot dog buns, topped with the kohlrabi slaw.


Use this recipe for kohlrabi slaw.

Suggested Pairing

Review Body: I have never had kofta, but I thought the cumin (and coriander) overwhelmed all other flavors in this. I would like to try again with more subtle flavors; I would have liked to taste the za'atar more. Patties held together unbelievably well on the grill. Amazing for a fish patty. Glaze was great.
