Not-So-Fishy Krabby Patty
The other day, Dhanu made a request for dinner, "I wanna eat Krabby Patty!" (or Krabburger, in Dutch version). That's what you get from watching too much SpongeBob Squarepants. Anyway, I thought I'd just make a normal cheese (beef)burger. But then a friend sent us a *real* Krabby Patty recipe (I'll post that later), which, to my surprise, is made of crab meat instead of beef (*duh*). And the next day, while doing a Google search, I found this one. I'm keeping the recipe here for later use.
2 x 170 g (6oz) cod or coley fillets, fresh or defrosted, skinned and finely cubed
340 g (12oz) potatoes, cooked and mashed
4 spring onions, finely chopped
2 x 5ml (2 teaspoons) fresh chopped parsley
flour, for dusting
115 g (4oz) garlic and herb soft cheese or Cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
115 g (4oz) breadcrumbs
2 x 15 ml spoon (2 tablespoons) sunflower oil
1. In a large bowl mix the fish, potatoes, onions and parsley together.
2. Divide the mixture into 12 portions. Dust hands well with flour and shape the portions into rounds and then flatten into a burger shape.
3. Place a spoonful of cheese in the middle of 6 of the burgers, top with another burger, shape and mould both burgers to form one burger.
4. Coat the fish burgers in the egg and breadcrumb mixture.
5. Cook under a moderate heat for 15-20 minutes, turning once, basting lightly with the oil.
6. Garnish and serve with pita bread or buns. SpongeBob likes his Krabby Patties with peanut butter, but sounds yucky to me.
