  • 75g (1/2 cup) plain flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 45g (1/2 cup) dried (packaged) breadcrumbs
  • 30g (1/2 cup) finely grated cheddar
  • 2 (about 150g each) boneless white fish fillets, halved crossways
  • 1 carrot, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 50g snow pea sprouts, ends trimmed
  • 2 green shallots, ends trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons good-quality whole-egg mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Vegetable oil, to shallow-fry
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 4 butter lettuce leaves


  • Step 1
    Place flour and egg in separate bowls. Combine breadcrumbs and cheddar on a plate. Using your hands, coat a piece of fish in flour and shake off any excess. Dip in egg and drain off any excess. Dip in breadcrumb mixture, pressing firmly to coat. Place on a clean plate and repeat with the remaining fish fillets. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
  • Step 2
    Combine carrot, snow pea sprouts and shallot in a bowl. Combine mayonnaise and lemon juice in a small bowl. Drizzle the carrot mixture with the mayonnaise mixture and stir until well combined.
  • Step 3
    Get a grown-up to: Add enough oil to a large frying pan to reach a depth of 5mm. Heat over medium heat. Add the fish and cook for 3 minutes each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  • Step 4
    Divide hamburger-bun bases among serving plates and top with lettuce, fish and carrot mixture. Top with remaining buns and serve immediately.
