Any leftover cooked fish will work nicely here, but grilled or roasted snapper or sea bass is especially delicious.
Fast Fish Recipes
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 large egg
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 jalapeño, minced
1 pound cooked fish, such as snapper, salmon, trout or cod, broken into small chunks
1/2 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs), plus more for coating
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup canola oil
6 hamburger buns, preferably brioche
Lettuce, sliced tomatoes and pickle slices, for serving
How to Make It
In a large bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the mustard, egg, cilantro, scallions and jalapeño. Fold in the fish and the 1/2 cup of panko and season with salt and pepper. Form the mixture into six 3 1/2-inch patties and coat generously with panko.
In a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter in the oil. Add the fish patties and cook over moderately high heat, turning once or twice, until crisp and heated through, about 8 minutes. Set the patties on the buns. Top with lettuce, tomato and pickles and serve right away.
The fish patties can be prepared through Step 1 and refrigerated overnight.
