Thai Tilapia Burgers with Hoisin SauceAmy
- 1 1/2 pounds tilapia fillets
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons ginger, minced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded & minced, use a smaller amount for less heat
- 1/4 cup minced cilantro
- 1/4 cup panko
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- dash of sesame oil
- mixed greens
Place 1/3 of the fish in a food processor and process until almost a paste, about 30 seconds. Add remaining fish and pulse until chopped but chunks are still visible.
Place the fish into a bowl. Add garlic, ginger, jalapeno, cilantro, panko, 1 tablespoon lime juice and salt.
In a small bowl mix together peanut butter, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon lime juice, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes. Add to bowl with fish mixture and combine.
Divide into 4 portions and shape into burgers. Place on plate; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour. If you are starving, you can skip the hour in the frig.
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Grill burgers about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine mayonnaise, hoisin sauce and sesame oil. Set aside.
To serve, place about 1 cup of mixed greens on a plate and top with thai tilapia burger and a dollop of hoisin mayo.
Note: Thai tilapia burgers can also be served on hamburger buns. They can also be made in mini size for bite-sized appetizers.
