This tasty burger from Northern Waters Restaurant in Duluth, Minnesota, is essentially a tender fish cake on a bun. The key is grinding or chopping the fish enough to hold together--but not so finely that it becomes mealy.




  • Grind or finely chop fish using the small die in a stand mixer’s meat-grinder attachment, a food processor or a knife.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the panko, parsley, egg white, Old Bay, crushed red pepper and mustard. Stir in the fish. Form into 8 patties, about 3/4-inch thick.

  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat. Add 4 patties. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked through (160°), turning once. Repeat with remaining butter and burgers. Serve on buns with desired toppers.
