Fried Fish Burgers with Mango Salsa


A few Sundays ago we celebrated Father’s Day on the patio with a glass of white wine and some delightful fish burgers! Our dad being the passionate cook that he is, couldn’t imagine not cooking on his day.. so that’s exactly what he did. Here are some pics from the outdoor Brett’s Bistro and we have provided you with the Mango Salsa & Fish Batter recipe. The fish used was cod, and we also topped the burgers with spicy mayo, a slice of cheese and some lettuce.

Fish Batter

3/4 tsp. salt

4 tsp. baking powder
