Asparagus Fish Burger

			  Asparagus Fish Burger

Serves: 6

Makes: 6 patties

Cooking time: 10 mins


  • 400g boneless firm white fish (ling, snapper, flat head etc)
  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 spring onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 handful of coriander
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ lime, squeezed

  • 5 – 6 asparagus spears, sliced thinly
  • 6 bread rolls (one for each)
  • Olive oil, for cooking

Topping Ideas:

  • 2 – 3 Asparagus spears, peeled
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced thinly
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 2-3 tablespoons Kewpie mayonnaise


  1. In a blender add fish, curry paste, garlic, spring onion, bread, coriander, salt, pepper and lime juice. Blitz until it becomes a fine paste and everything is sliced evenly. Place mixture into a bowl.
  2. Slice asparagus spears thinly and add into the bowl. Fold the asparagus through the mixture. Divide the mixture into 6 balls and shape each ball into a patty.
  3. In a medium non-stick pan, add a splash of olive oil and heat over a medium high heat.
  4. Lay the patties into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until lightly golden and cooked through.
  5. Toast your bread and add some toppings! The ones I have listed are a guide, but you can add your own favourites!


  • Lightly grill the asparagus beforehand for more flavour!


  • This can be done with chicken mince or skinless salmon fillets.
