Chef’s notes

This trout burger recipe makes a great summer meal and it comes together in a snap. It's best to prepare with fish that are a half pound or bigger because smaller trout are a hassle to debone. Or, you can use salmon, char, or any flaky fish. Tender brioche buns and tangy curry-lime mayo complement these delicate fish patties.
