A meal for your heart, not your hips24

[Fish Burger with radish and olives]

Are you craving greasy fish and chips? Have this instead. I guarantee your hips will love you for it!

Sometimes you really want fish… and chips. Lots of them.

Sometimes you find the willpower to resist and then feel really good about yourself. This is one of those times.

There’s no fancy cooking here, just fresh fish, fresh bread and some crunchy and salty toppings. I’m a little bit addicted to radishes and olives at the moment. I’ve been munching on them separately as snacks and then a light turned on and this combination was born. I love it when that happens.

So skip the chips and serve this yummy burger with a tall glass of iced water with fresh slices of lime. Then it’s equally good for your body as it is for your taste buds.

Happy cooking, Christie

Fish burgers with radish and olives
serves 4

4 wholemeal sesame seed rolls
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
lettuce leaves (I used butter lettuce)
2 radishes, thinly sliced
12 black Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 thick white fish fillets, skin removed (I used Blue Eye)
lime slices to serve

1. Slice the rolls in half and spread with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise each.

2. Arrange the lettuce leaves, radish slices and olives onto the bottom half of each roll.

3. Heat the olive oil in a large heavy based frying pan over high heat. Cook the fish fillets for 2-3 minutes each side. Add to the burgers, season to taste and top with the other half of the roll.

4. Serve with iced water with lime slices added.
