How to make good use of your Lionfish elimination catch, turn them into delicious fish burgers!

Yield: makes 10 mini-fish burgers
750g lionfish filet, finely chopped
1 red onion, thinly sliced
10 leaves of Boston lettuce, washed
150ml tartar sauce, see recipe below
10 salad buns, halved
butter, for frying
pepper & salt
Season the lionfish, divide into 10 equal portions and kneed into small patties. Brown the butter in a frying pan and bake the lionfish, in batches, until browned on each side, about 3-4 minutes per side. Place a salad leave on each bun bottom, put on a fish burger and top with a tablespoon tartar sauce and some sliced onion. Top with the other bun half. Serve immediately.

1 cup good quality mayonnaise
juice of 1 lemon
0.5 cup dill pickles, finely chopped
0.25 cup spring onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoons capers, chopped
salt & pepper
In a bowl, mix all ingredients. Season to taste.
Make sure to chop the ingredients by hand and not in a food processor, or you will get an entirely different sauce.
