Shark Burger

Yesterday, although I put all 6 of the shark fillets in marinade, I only cooked two.  I had an idea for today that I wanted to try out with the remaining four.  Shark burgers!

These were good.  I just coarsely ground the shark in a food processor, added some bread crumbs and sauteed shallots, then pan fried.  My tomato and avocado salsa from yesterday was still bright and fresh looking so I topped the burgers with that.  Pretty cool.

Shark Burgers

4 shark fillets marinated (see above)

2 shallots, minced


1/4 cup fine bread crumbs

Tomato avocado salsa (see above)

4 hamburger buns, toasted

Cut the fillets into cubes and coarsely chop in a food processor.  Set aside.  Saute the shallots in a little butter, allow to cool, then add to the fish, along with the bread crumbs.  Mix well and form into four patties.

Lightly oil a frying pan with olive oil and fry the patties 4 minutes per side.  Place on the buns, top with salsa and enjoy.

Beverage suggestion:  Ice cold beer

    Nice idea with the shark. The Dublin Bay Prawn (I will be posting in a week or so about them) is an excellent touch too.

    I was wondering what happened to the others, but I know your freezers get hungry 😉
    I bet they were very good with the scampi.
