Tilapia Burgers with Lemon Dill AioliPosted: November 23, 2013
The other day, I was inspired to make burgers. The reason was that we have just received a massive dump of snow, chiming the arrival of winter for good. I know, burgers are not winter foods – but I find that if I make summer foods throughout the winter, it helps me get through the long dark of the Canadian winter. Also, these burgers were delicious, so why not?
Throw it all into a bowl, and add breadcrumbs until it sticks together.
Tilapia Burgers with Lemon Dill Aioli
For the burgers, you will need:
5 tilapia filets, cut into chunks
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp old bay seasoning
1 whole garlic clove, peeled
salt and pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
For the Aioli, you will need:
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp dill weed
Combine tilapia, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, old bay seasoning, garlic and salt and pepper in your food processor. Blend until evenly combined. Transfer to a bowl and add breadcrumbs. Form into patties and put in the fridge to firm up for at least a half hour. While you’re waiting, make the aioli by combining all of the ingredients in a bowl. Heat 1/2 inch of canola oil in a pan over medium heat. When it reaches frying temperature, fry the patties until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel. Serve on a bun, smothered in aioli. Enjoy, a lot!
