Bondi Burger

Happy New Year readers!

I know I’ve been a bit slack but I’ve been enjoying a bit of a break, melting slightly in the Melbourne heat the last few days. I trust you all started the new year with a bang. How are those new year’s resolutions going? I don’t have any, as I am constantly making resolutions throughout the year.

So one of the great things with healthy food options I’ve noticed is, they don’t take long to make at all! This recipe comes from my piles of recipes I’ve torn out of magazines. It looked like just the kind of thing we should eat this summer, and it was whipped up in no time.

The flavours worked extremely well together, and a doubtful Hamsley really enjoyed this combination of ingredients.

Louise Pickford

Olive oil spray
4 x 125g skinless blue-eye fillets (I used rockling fillets)
4 ciabatta or Turkish bread rolls
1 carrot, peeled, grated
1 small raw beetroot, peeled, grated
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce

1. Preheat a barbecue or chargrill pan on high heat.

2. Spray the fish with a little oil and season well with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until charred and just cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, lightly toast the cut-side of the rolls on the chargrill.

4. Fill the rolls with the fish fillets, grated carrot and beetroot, tomato, onion and lettuce, topped with 1 teaspoon each of mayonnaise and sweet chilli sauce. Serve immediately.

Serves 4.

    Dear Shellie,

    Looks delicious and rocking fillets are actually one of my favourite fish because the white flesh always falls away in such delicious chunks. I had homemade turkey and pork patties in my burgers for dinner tonight and it was delicious too.

    The burger looks great. When I saw the first photo I figured that it was at a restaurant and was skimming the page for a restaurant name.. haha… Great job! 😉

    I love that summer food is so quick and easy. I just wish the other half ate fish! Hmmm, might have to do him a normal burger and fish for me.

    I could totally do this with prawns.. I’m only saying that because I know we have prawns in the freezer and I’m SCARED OF COOKING FISH. Gah.

    Please don’t tell Hamish.

    I haven’t made my famous fish burger for ages!! You have inspired me to make it again. Mine is made with barramundi but I do like the Blue Eye fillets too.

    My new years resolution for this year is to continue on with last years resolutions. Health and Fitness 🙂

    Yum, this looks like just my kind of burger. I don’t eat a lot of red meat so love anything with fish as an alternative. I’m not quite down with the Australian tendency to put beetroot in everything though – I’m just not a big fan – but otherwise this looks divine! 🙂
