Pretentious food blog – Fish Burgers

I never thought I’d write a food blog, but since I am, it should be a bit ridiculous and moderately pretentious. Otherwise it wouldn’t be a food blog right?

All the woman were telling me I had to cook for Tessa on international woman’s day, so I thought it was time for something novel in this part of the world. Fish Burgers

Fish prep

One filleted Tilapia fish ( Must be freshly caught from the Nile River)
Two Local Free range eggs (If you haven’t picked them from your neighbour’s henhouse, forget about it)
One Capsicum
3 cloves garlic
2 Tomatoes
1 Carrot (All above be from an open air local farmer’s market)
2 dirty red onions (If its not dirty, its probably genetically modified right?)
2 pieces mouldy stale bread which naturally form breadcrumbs almost immediately after touching. (The secrets of breadmaking have not yet reached here, I’ll be honest)
4 Burger buns
A wee bit of salt and flour
Heinz Ketchup! (Globalisation has its advantages)

Fire1      Fire2


Must be cooked with charcoal produced from a protected rainforest nearby

Throw the eggs, flour, salt and breadcrumbs together then toss the fish in. Fry the fish for a couple of minutes
Toast the burger buns
Fry the vegetables in a little bit of whatever fat tickles your fancy. Throw them and the fish on the bun and eat relatively quickly. Food is usually better hot. Add unnecessary amounts of ketchup.

      Thanks Rosemary, the ketchup thing is bizzarre. We’re not even in a town and we can by Heinz ketchup 300 meters from our house! Easter blessings to you too.

      Harrow Priydiddy nice to hear from you! T-sauce is awesome no question. I do prefer watties, but the nearest watties is approximately 312990593km away.

    I thought you would like to know that Ross died early yesterday morning. He was always very proud of you both and loved to hear your news. Love, Pauline

      Pauline we’re so sorry and we are thinking of you and all the church family. You already know how much Ross inspired us over the years. Tess has sent an e-mail.
