Sometimes it is just darn hard to take a decent picture!  I seem to have the occasional good day, and many not so good days, sigh.  Despite the picture, these fish burgers were a yummy meal, which we had with a creamy coleslaw, recipe pending.

The other part to this post, is that I made a couple of changes to my Hamburger Bun recipe - they are even better!
They are bigger, softer, and toast up really well.
You can find my original recipe here.  The changes I made was to decrease the Xanthan Gum from two tsp. to one.  I also decreased the amount of flour mix by 1/4 cup, and added 1/4 extra cup of Tapioca Starch to equal a total of 3/4 cup Tapioca Starch to the pre-mix of flours.  The other change I made, was once the muffin rings were filled, I then turned my 200 degree oven off, and immediately put in the tray of buns to raise for 30 minutes.  It worked beautifully.  Just a couple of simple changes took this recipe to a whole new level,  so I will always make them this way from now on.  I will also include this update, in my original post.  Now onto the Fillet of Fish Burgers:
This was enough for two, - just increase amounts if you have more people to feed.
1 lb. of white fish - we used snapper, bones removed
1 beaten egg
2 Tblsp. White Rice Flour
2 Tblsp. Corn Starch
2-3 tsp. dried dill
salt and pepper
3 Tblsp. Grapeseed oil
Rinse and pat dry your fillet of fish.  Cut into 3 or 4 burger size pieces.  Heat up a frying pan on medium high heat with the grapeseed oil.
On a plate, add the flour and seasonings, mixing well with a fork.  In a bowl, whisk up the egg.  Dip each piece of fish into the egg, allowing any extra to drip off, then into the flour mixture, pressing the fish to coat well.  Add to the hot pan and cook about 6 minutes per side.  It will depend how thick your fish is - mine were not that thick.
We had these Fillet of Fish burgers with lettuce, sliced red onion and my Tartar Sauce Recipe.  A nice alternative to your everyday Burgers.

  1. MMMMMMMM,...Your hamburger buns look so tasty & special ! Well risen too!
    I love tartaar sauce, only home made! The fish burgers look delightful !!
    A great & lovely meal, Ina!

  2. These really do look great. I haven't eaten bread for more than a year - until today. I bought a loaf of commercially made gluten-free bread.... which tastes no better now than it did when I first tried it. I think I'll have to try making my own. I've been reading some of your older posts. What a lovely person you are. You write so well. I read one where you and your husband went to an island - he was playing the guitar. The music has haunted my morning, just lovely. Thank you.

    1. Janet - you are too sweet! You must make your own bread...1000X's better than that sawdust, cardboard tasting stuff! 🙂

  3. These look wonderful Ina. I've made gf buns a few times, but I'll have to give these a go. Thanks for the great looking recipe. Re: gluten-free breads in NZ. (Janet NZ's comment) I have never had a whole lot of luck making my own. Kind of nice, but for the effort and expense involved I always just went back to buying it. Vernerdi was my favourite brand and I'm so missing it over here in Perth! Talk about cardboard bread here! I'm going to have to give homemade gf bread another go. Preferably sourdough.

    1. We have a decent enough gf bread here called Udi's. It is pricey, so I worked out what my costs were to make homemade gf bread - $3.00 cheaper! And homemade always tastes so much better. I would love a gf sourdough recipe - if you come up with a good recipe, please share!

  4. Wow, that's way cheaper! Mine worked out to be pretty much the same price as brought, and the Vernedi one I spoke of is yeast-free also which my tummy prefers. I will work on my gf sour-dough and yet back to you... might be a few months or more though ;-)I do love making gf soda breads too and was planning on writing a post some time in the near future.

  5. hello Ina!
    I just gave youn an award!! oooh,..yes!! Congrats! Come over @ my latest post & pick it up!
    Enjoy! You can read over there why!

  6. HI! Can you tell me where you got the muffin rings? I have had a heck of a time finding them. When I have they are $6/each! Thanks!

    1. I bought them at Capital Iron - cheap. 4 rings per pack at about 4.99??? I think that was the cost, anyways pretty cheap - I use them alot!
