Ocean Burgers

Broadcaster Derek Davis shares the recipe for one his favourite fish dishes


  • 250 g white fish
  • 250 g smoked (coley, haddock or if you are rich-cod)
  • 2 cup white crumbs (might need more)
  • one cup golden crumbs (or crushed corn flakes)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 sweet apple (not a cooker)
  • 1 small onion


  1. Poach or steam the fish, mash it up and check carefully for bones. Place it in a bowl.
  2. Buzz the peeled apple and the onion in a blender until fine. Add to the fish.
  3. Mix in one egg and start adding the crumbs until you have a doughy sticky mix that will keep its shape when moulded into a patty.
  4. Shape the mix into balls or rissoles and dip in beaten egg and golden crumbs.
  5. Fry slowly till brown. Season to taste but be aware that the smoked fish will add saltiness.
