Andrew’s Fish Burgers

This recipe was a close call for the judges. It was barely edged out by the top three winners. Best of all, Andrew is a 7-year old chef-in-training. Way to go Andrew! Any type of fish will work – even salmon – but you want a nice flaky fish to pat your burgers together.

  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
