Locally sourced (caught by our good friend in Beaver Pond) Pike is wonderful tasty, firm, freshwater fish. After the first meal of poached Pike with fresh vegetables, we pick the rest of this delicious meat off the bones and make fish burgers on the Grillstone. The burgers are grilled on natural stone in a healthy non-direct flame heat. Here’s the recipe!
Ingredients: 2 – 4 cups flaked cooked fish – we used Pike, but it could be salmon, trout, etc. (recipe that follows is based on 2 cups fish)
2 eggs, 1 cup chopped onions, 2 chopped garlic cloves, 1/2 cup chopped capers (optional but super!), 1/2 cup chopped colorful peppers (optional), 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, paprika & lemon juice to your taste. You can put 2 tablespoons mayonaise in for extra moist cakes.
Beat the eggs a bit, and put everything in a big mixing bowl and mix lightly. Put on your heated, oiled Grillstone and let them sizzle for about 6 minutes each side until browned.
Enjoy this light, summer burger!
