Homemade fish burgers

There is no better comfort food than a burger and this one is going to be your new favourite 🙂 A delightful, gluten-free homemade burger which bursts with amazing flavours.

What about the buns?

I know that being gluten-free, especially if you are new to the whole story, can be super hard and unsatisfying. However, if you were not able to find a good burger bun until now, no worries because you just found yourself the best fluffy bun recipe.

The buns are super versatile and you can use them as our bread for breakfast, for burgers and you can even make them in a sweet version if you wish to. The key ingredients for the buns which make them fluffy are the almond and coconut flour. They keep the buns moist and super fluffy on the inside, but crunchy on the outside.

What about the burgers?

When I think of a burger I want it to be moist and filled with those delicious juices when I take a bite. This is why I would recommend you using an oily fish in the recipe like salmon, cod or tilapia. They will make your burger burst with flavour the moment you add some extra herbs to it.

My best way of making the burger reach that moist texture is firstly frying the burger so that I can get that nice crunch on the outside and then I just pop it in the oven for extra 20 minutes for it to cook on the inside.

I truly hope that you will enjoy this recipe and if you do try it DON’T FORGET TO TAG @FITWITHOUTGUILT IN ANY OF YOUR REMAKES BECAUSE IT MAKES MY DAY SEEING THEM!
