I love me a good salmon burger! Or crab cake or lobster cake. Or….okay, okay, I LOVE SEAFOOD! But one of the hardest things about making seafood burgers (or patties) is keeping the darn thing together while its on the grill or cooking in the pan. There’s nothing worse than watching your precious fish fall through the grates of your BBQ grill. Sure, you could use more wet filler to bind (like egg or mayo) but there’s a balance…the right balance between fish, binder and breadcrumbs.

Too much binder and the patty turns out soggy bleh. Too much breadcrumbs and that’s all you taste!

Want to know how to I form the patty so that it stays together? (p.s. the recipe is below, first link)
