It’s pretty interesting to notice that certain types of “junk food” or simple comfort food can suddenly become a new culinary trend. It happened to meatballs for instance; restaurant Meatballs is doing great business in cities like NYC and London and many other restaurants placed the traditional simple meatball as a posh dish on their menu. There’s a gourmet mayonnaise store in New York, there are several grilled cheese-restaurants and then there’s the burger.
From very exclusive burger dishes with wagyu beef, truffles or foie gras to popular restaurants that claim to serve the “perfect basic burger”; burgers are more popular than ever. I wrote about de Burgermeester in Amsterdam before and this Fish Burger is based on one of my favorite dishes there.
I think this is the ultimate burger for summer. It’s comforting, juicy, fresh, has a nice salty kick from the capers and is pretty light (but very satisfying too).
It combines perfectly with the fresh lemon mayonnaise with spicy wasabi. I used a grill pan, but it’s also delicious prepared on a BBQ.
