Cod & Fennel Burgers with Tzaziki

​Delicious twist on a classic fish burger served with a sharp and tangy tzaziki with a hum of beautiful spice running through all of it. 


Sainsbury’s 400g Cod Fillet Portion (these should be thoroughly defrosted)
100g breadcrumbs
2 tbsp finely chopped capers
2 spring onions, finely chopped
25g frozen parsley by Sainsbury's
Salt and pepper to season
1 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp coriander seeds
Vegetable oil, for brushing the burgers
4 hamburger buns
Iceberg lettuce, for serving
For the tzatziki
100g 0% Greek yoghurt
25g frozen parsley by Sainsbury's
25g frozen mint by Sainsbury's
25g frozen coriander by Sainsbury's
10g frozen garlic by Sainsbury's
Juice of 1 lime
Pinch of frozen chilli (if you like it hot) by Sainsbury's
Salt to season, according to taste
Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Into a food processor add the cod, breadcrumbs, capers, spring onion, parsley, salt, pepper and spices and pulse until just combined
  2. Using slightly damp hands shape the mixture into six burger patties. Refrigerate the patties until they are cold and have firmed up. Overnight would be ideal but one hour would be fine
  3. To make the tzaziki add all of the ingredients to a mini chopper and pulse until they are fully combined. Season the mixture with lime and salt to taste. Keep in the fridge until you are ready to eat it
  4. Preheat a grill pan to medium-high, until it starts to get smoky. Brush the grill and the burgers with oil and cook for roughly three minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and leave them to rest whilst you toast the burger buns on the same pan
  5. Serve the burgers on buns topped with the tzaziki, some of the crispy lettuce and a wedge of lemon on the side.
