Connecticut Fish Burger Delicious Recipe.

For a New Year’s resolution we thought that we would try a new recipe once every week or two. We came across this easy to do and delicious fish burger recipe and liked it so much we want to share it.

Fish Burger.

Pick out your favorite seafood to use in this burger, we usually use Tuna, Sword or Salmon depending on availability and freshness. Recommend using your local seafood specialist fishmonger ours is at FishTales in New Canaan, Ct. today we will use fresh salmon.


  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound salmon, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 2 scallions, finely sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for cooking
  • 4 seeded hamburger buns, split
  • 4 medium butter lettuce leaves
  • 1 beefsteak or heirloom tomato, sliced

Spicy Sriracha Sauce.

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Sriracha (a chili, garlic hot sauce store bought)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 grilled scallions, finely chopped (optional)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Sriracha sauce combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well season with salt and pepper and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.


Directions for fish burger.

The one pound of fish will make 4 large size burgers or 5 reasonable sized burgers. Handle the fish gently and cut into ¼ inch cubes. Mix the sesame oil, soy sauce, red pepper flakes and egg to a large mixing bowl. Gently fold in the tuna, red bell pepper and scallions, do not bruise the fish. Mix well to coat everything evenly.


Sprinkle with salt and fold in the panko breadcrumbs to bind everything. Carefully form the mixture into 4 to 5 even-size patties and set on a platter. Refrigerate so the patties firm up and hold their shape when cooked, 15 to 20 minutes. (they will be a little loose that is why you need to cook them in a pan and not on the grill directly). We like to use a cast iron skillet over the grill for this.

tip *

  1. mince 1/4 of the fish in a food processor to a texture of sausage, this helps to bind the burgers together.
  2.  Cut the bottom of a plastic cup off and use the cup as a burger ring to form the burgers. 


Add vegetable oil to a large cast iron pan (or nonstick skillet) over high heat.

Cook fish burgers for about 3 minutes per side, when done the burgers should be brown on the outside and medium rare in the center.

Serve the tuna burgers on a toasted bun with the Spicy Sriracha sauce on the side along with lettuce leaves and tomato slices.

David, just from reading the recipe, I can tell you that this will be delicious.  It is very similar to one I use.  

But, the sauce will set it wholly apart from any other fishburger.  Thanks for the recipe and inspiration.
