Crunchy, creamy, soft and flavorful are just a few delicious ways to describe this drool-worthy and satisfying Crispy Rockfish Pub Burger with Provolone and Special Sauce.
I am a purist when it comes to my seafood. I enjoy the authentic taste of the sea gently combined with fresh ingredients that compliment the flavor of fish or shellfish. I like the all the goodness of the ocean to shine through.
However, I have to admit that pan-frying rockfish in a crispy crust until golden brown is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it. Rockfish is mellow in flavor and somewhat flaky in texture. It holds up well to being lightly breaded and fried and it’s even more delicious when served with this “special sauce”.
Although I love a fried fish dinner, I think this crispy rockfish is even better when it’s made into a mouth-watering pub burger.
This luscious burger is topped with a thick slice of provolone, quick-pickled red onions, pickles, lettuce, tomato and of course, my special sauce. Can you see me drooling now?
Over the last few days I’ve been dreaming about a fish burger using my stash of seafood from the good folks over at Port Orford Sustainable Seafood. I’m honored to have this Community Supported Fishery (CSF) in my book, The Oregon Farm Table Cookbook.
I’m also proud to be a member of this amazing company that supports sustainable fishing here in Oregon and provides quality seafood to our Oregon communities.
If you love a fresh piece of seafood, but you also love a tantalizing burger, you are going to love this recipe. It makes a delicious weeknight meal or a festive weekend dinner with family and friends.
Sometimes I fry the fish, set out all the condiments, fresh burger ingredients and toasted buns, and then let everyone assemble their burgers. I like to serve this with potato chips, crispy sweet potato fries, or my kids favorite tater tots. The tater tots are also delicious dunked in the special sauce!
The Crispy Rockfish Pub Burger with Provolone and Special Sauce just might become your new favorite recipe.
Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy and Love-Filled 2021!
