Veggie Swai Burger Patties

Not to toot my own horn, but I killed it with this experiment. #toottoot

I had some frozen swai fillets, green onions and peas at home. So, naturally I thought burger patties. Anyways, this turned out wayyyy better than that I thought. Some of the patties looked like actual patties, but most of them broke apart. Next time, I think I need to add egg or something to glue the ingredients together. In any case, it was DELICIOUS. 

And since this was an experiment, I didn't really measure the ingredients. Like at all. Sorry. 

  • Frozen Peas
  • 2-3 wild mushrooms
  • 3 Swai fillets (thawed)
  • Leftover homemade tomato salsa (maybe 2 ounces?)
  • 8-10 green onions
  • Bread crumbs (idk if this is necessary, but it was in the cupboard and I wanted to finish it) 
  • Fresh garlic
  • Fresh thyme
  • Seasonings to taste
  1. Boil peas until they are soft.
  2. While the peas are boiling, chop up green onions and mushrooms and garlic.
  3. Throw the onion mixture in a blender or food processor until fine.
  4. Drain peas and onion mixture. 
  5. Mash with a masher until patty like texture. Add seasonings. I used black pepper, salt and cayenne pepper.  Put it to the side.
  6. Place swai fillets in sauce pan with olive oil and cook for 5 minutes. They don't need to be completely done, just warmed throughout the fish.
  7. Cut up the fish and add to the mashed mixture. Mash fish in mixture.
  8. Isn't mashing so fun?? 
  9. Add bread crumbs to mashed mixture and tomato salsa. I made a chunky tomato salsa a few days ago (I'll post the recipe soon) that added some really good spicy flavors to the patty mixture. The bread crumbs, I think, added body to the patties. But, I could be wrong. Basically, I just wanted to get it out of my cupboard. 
  10. Using the same pan that you used for the fillets, add canola oil and let warm. 
  11. Mold patty mixture into patties and fry until both sides are crispy and brown. 
  12. Enjoy!! 

I paired this with my spaghetti squash pasta. Here's the recipe for THAT!
