These burgers are the best meal I’ve made for my family in weeks! This is a good thing since we’ve been getting sick of the same old fish recipes, and since we eat fish or vegetarian meals 5 times a week I am excited to find another fantastic recipe!
Fish & Garbanzo Bean Burgers
1 lb fillet of tilapia
1/2 tsp salt
Pepper to taste
1 cup canned white beans
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
Whole grain buns or bread
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spritz baking pan with cooking spray and add fish. Season with 1/4 tsp salt and pepper to taste. Bake until flaky, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove fish from oven; leave oven on.
2. In a food processor, puree white beans, parsley, 1/4 tsp salt and bread crumbs. Process for 1 minute. (If you don’t have a processor, use a potato masher instead.) Place bean mixture into a large bowl with the egg; crumble in fish. Gently mix with your hands until it’s incorporated, then form into 8 small patties.
3. Coat an ovenproof skillet with cooking spray and put over medium heat. Add burgers. Cook until brown on one side, about 5 minutes. Flip cakes carefully and place in oven for 5 minutes.
4. Serve on mini-buns with lettuce, tomatoes and tartar sauce.
