Fish Burger Wraps

fish-fingers-wrapsThis fish burger wraps recipe is much healthier than your average burger. Replacing the buns with wraps instead cuts down on carbs but not on flavor. Each piece of fish is coated in a flavorful, crispy, buttery breadcrumb coating. Served alongside fresh greens, these burgers can be cooked on the BBQ if preferred. Ideal as a filling lunch or light dinner.

  • 2tbsps plain flour
  • 1 medium egg
  • 45-60g fresh breadcrumbs
  • Zest and juice of ½ a lemon
  • 2tbsps sunflower oil
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 8tsps tarter sauce
  • 1 Little Gem lettuce

  1. Pat the fish dry with kitchen paper. Put the flour on a plate, beat the egg in a bowl, then mix the crumbs with the lemon zest and seasoning in another bowl.
  2. Coat the fish portions in the flour, dip in the egg then coat in the crumbs. Pat them on well.
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the fish and cook over a medium heat for about 5 mins on each side, until golden, then stand them up in the pan to brown the edges.
  4. Warm the tortillas in the microwave or oven, then spread each one with 2 tsps tartare sauce. Pull apart the Little Gem leaves and add 2 to each tortilla. Slice the dill pickles lengthways into 4, lay on top of the lettuce leaves, then top each with a fish burger. Squeeze lemon juice over. Bring in the sides, then fold up the bottom of the tortilla.
