Sandwiches and burgers have been on my mind more often as of late. I had seen a few recipes for salmon burgers that sounded tasty but there was one problem; they called for grinding the salmon to form a patty. I didn’t really want to grind up a perfectly good piece of salmon so I decided to just use the salmon as it comes. I could just imagine a warm and juicy salmon burger dripping with tasty teriyaki sauce! But the burger needed something more. The easy ones were the lettuce, and tomato and I though that salty bacon would go well with the teriyaki sauce. A while ago I made some teriyaki shiitake mushrooms and I thought that they would go perfectly in the burger. I thought that my sandwich was complete and then another idea struck; tangy blue cheese melting into the warm teriyaki mushrooms would be perfect! Of course I had to go with my favorite bun, a ciabatta bun. When I was at the fish monger I saw some black cod which I had been meaning to try and I changed plans and went with a black cod teriyaki burger. The burger was a bit of effort to put together but it was well worth it. The teriyaki black cod burger with sauteed teriyaki shiitake mushrooms and blue cheese was amazing. All of the flavours combined well, contrasting and complementing each other. The black cod was excellent. It had a texture that was similar to that of salmon and it was really tasty done up in the teriyaki sauce.

It looks wonderful, there is only one problem … you did not make one for me 🙂

Kevin, your burger looks like a definite crowd pleaser. This is so much better than beef. You’re right about leaving the filet whole.
Mrs Ergül says
What a burger you have, I will love to have it! And black cod is so new to me!
Kevin, you come up with the greatest creations! Ciabatta is my favorite as well.
OMG I’m making this immediately. With fake bacon 😉
Yum! Four great words, one after the other! 🙂 Well, at least separately, I still haven’t seen a black cod 🙂 I love the bacon touch too– just to humor the meat-lovers 🙂
I’ve never had fish on a sandwich like that other than the deep fried in batter kind. That looks really delicious!
This is the better sandwich that I ever seen. !!!!! Superb
That looks splendid! Anything with bacon and blue cheese sounds good to me! Great idea to use the ciabatta bun!
My Sweet & Saucy says
I love that you left it as a whole patty too! Looks great!
I’m ashamed to call the stuff that I’ve been making “burgers” after seeing this.
that burger sounds great! Love all the tastes and textures used!

That burger is very original! It looks terribly good! Scrumptious!
I’ve never had black codfish – this burger looks tasty Kevin.
Kevin, you never cease to amaze me with your creative energy. That burger is a total winner – I’d much rather that than the wasa cracker I’m having right now.
Black cod on a burger sounds amazing, and the array of flavors used here would seem to blend nicely. I will definitely be trying these burgers this summer. As someone else mentioned, black cod are not on the endangered fish list. Thanks for the inspiration!
I love fish sandwiches…. this is such a nice idea!
the picture is gorgeous!
nice one Kevin!
You never stop surprising me. This sounds really, really good. I love the addition of the bacon!
Diana Evans says

I ate before I stopped in here to be on the safe side and not be hungry…heheheh
This looks great and I’m sure it was really delicious. I’ve never had a burger like this, but I am sure going to try one like this.
I’ve always eaten just some regular fish patties with burgers.
That looks sooo tasty. I don’t believe I have ever had black cod before.
My Fave burger!!!! Can you move to New York? You will be a great neighbour to have 🙂
I’ve never had black cod before, but that sandwich is stunning!
Awesome! I bet It’s delicious!!!
