  • small pack coriander, chopped
  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 burger buns, split and toasted


  1. Cut the fish into 4 chunky fingers. Put the flour in a bowl with some seasoning, put the egg in another bowl, and the breadcrumbs and sesame seeds in a third. Dust the fish fingers in flour, then dip in egg and, finally, coat in breadcrumbs. Chill for 10 mins, if you have time.

  2. Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan and cook the fish fingers for 3-4 mins each side until golden and cooked through, adding a drizzle more oil if the pan looks too dry.

  3. Meanwhile, stone, peel and slice the avocado, squeeze over a little of the lime juice to prevent it from turning brown, then mix the remaining lime juice and coriander into the mayonnaise.

  4. To serve, spread a little mayo over the base of each bun, top with 2 fish fingers, a few slices of avocado and the bun lid. Serve the remaining mayo on the side.

Yum! A nice family dinner and a different way to serve fish that isn't too 'fishy' (ha) for the people in our house who aren't huge fish fans... The sesame seeds were a nice addition, but the mayo wasn't hugely exciting - just tasted of mayo, but maybe I didn't add enough coriander and lime. I served ours with a fresh mango salsa (diced mango, red pepper, spring onions, sweetcorn, sweet chilli sauce, fish sauce, lime juice and coriander) which went beautifully. And wedges and salad!

Made this for the kids. I added dessicated coconut to the breadcrumbs and I oven cooked them instead of frying ( 12 mins) . We served them up in tortilla wraps with sweet potato wedges on the side. Kids adored them.

I have made this several times within the last few weeks: I LOVE IT! I find myself craving it. The recipe is more than enough for 4 burgers.

This was really lovely! Very easy to make and the sesame and breadcrumb topping is crunchy and tasty. The avocados go really well with it. The recipe says this is for 2 but we easily had enough for 4, so not sure there is a typo here and it’s meant to serve 4? Either way, delicious!
