Elegant Fish Burgers

(No photo - yet)

Now, the concept of fish burgers is a little bit iffy to me. Not exactly the most alluring concept, but I was bored and willing to try something new. And I was pleasantly surprised. It's also super quick & easy to make, which is always a bonus on a weekday.

Elegant Fish Burgers

Serves 1 

1 frozen crumbed fish fillet, any flavour you like (i used sweet red pepper)
1 greenpepper
1 panini, cut in half

For the mayo: (makes enough for 4 servings)
1 egg
1 tablespoon vinegar (or lemon juice, if you have)
5 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons sunflower oil
a handful of rocket, finely chopped
salt & pepper, to taste

1. Put the whole greenpepper in the oven and roast on the hottest setting until black & blistered.
Wait for it to cool of a bit and peel the skin of. Cut of the ends and cut into 4 slices, lengthwise.
2. Whisk up the mayo - in a blender, mix together the egg and vinegar. Gradually add the oil, until you get a pale golden colour. Stir in the rocket, add a little salt & pepper to taste and set aside.
3. Fry the fish fillet according to the instructions on the packet until crisp & golden.
4. Smear both halves of the panini generously with mayo (there will be some leftover mayo, but I'm sure you'll think up a use for that), top with the green pepper and fish fillet and dig in!
