Step by Step Instructions
Place the cod fillets into a bowl, drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Use your hands to massage the oil and seasoning evenly into the fillets. Place the sesame seeds on a small plate and press the cod fillets into the seeds on both sides. Coat both sides of the fish evenly with sesame seeds.
Melt a tbsp of butter in a cast iron pan over medium to medium-high heat (not too hot or the fish will stick to the pan and fall apart…) and place the fish into the pan. Fry the fish on both sides until golden. This will take less than 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets.
While the fish is cooking pop the burger buns into a warm oven and whisk the lime juice, salt, garlic granules, and chili flakes into the mayo until well combined. Set aside.
Share the salad greens over 4 plates, scatter onions and tomatoes over top, and drizzle with oil and vinegar. When the buns have warmed cut them in half and spread chili lime mayo generously over both halves. Share the fresh cilantro over the bottom portion of each bun and when the fish is done add a filet to each bun. Top the fish with mixed sprouts and a sprinkle of salt, and place the burgers, open-faced, alongside the salads, then sit down and enjoy the quick and tasty dinner that you have created!
