March 5, 2021

Picture this: A perfectly light, crispy, and flaky fish patty sandwiched between two toasted and buttered buns. Our NIKU Farms community has made it clear that they love our sustainable fish options, and our fish partner John O’s Foods just so happens to have a recipe for the perfect Fish Fry! 

Servings: 2

Ingredients for Fish Burger:

Ingredients for Lemon Garlic Mayo


Step 1: Thaw NIKU Farms Fish Patties

Either overnight in the refrigerator or in a strainer under cold, running water.

Step 2: Mix the lemon garlic mayo

Combine all mayo ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

Step 3: Prepare the following in 3 separate shallow bowls:

Step 4: Bread the fish

Dip each patty into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture and finally the crumbs, coating each side of the patty completely during each of these 3 steps.

Step 5: Heat a fry pan to medium high.

Melt the 1/2 cup butter.

Step 6: Time to pan-fry!

Place a coated patty in the hot pan and cook until golden brown (approx. 3 minutes per side). Flip patty to cook the second side.

Step 7: Remove fillet and drain on a paper towel before serving

Fry remaining patty, adding butter to the pan between if necessary. Toast your buns on the same pan before next step.

Step 8: Lemon-butter mixture

When all is cooked, add 4 tbsp. of butter to the hot fry pan and squeeze in the juice of 1 lemon. Stir the butter and juice to loosen the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.

Step 9: Serve & Enjoy!!!

Assemble the browned patties with assorted toppings on toasted brioche buns and pour the hot sauce on top. 

P.S. If you’d like to add an onion ring into the mix, simply get a big raw onion ring and follow the same frying instructions as the fish patties.
