This delicious recipe was discovered in a Saturday supplement that was left on the Paddington to Stroud train. Inspiration can be found in lots of unusual places!
Serves 4 people
FOR THE GREEN CHILLI MAYO
• 100ml good-quality mayonnaise
• 1 tbsp tinned jalapeno peppers, roughly chopped
• A squeeze of lime juice, to taste
FOR THE FISH BURGERS
• 30g fresh ginger
• 1 stalk lemongrass, base and outer layer removed
• 30g coriander stalks
• 650g firm white fish
• 350g raw prawns, shelled and chopped
• Zest of 2 limes
• 1 large red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
• 1 tbsp rice vinegar
• 2 tbsp mirin
• 40g radishes finely sliced
• 4 brioche rolls
• ½ iceberg lettuce, cut into quarters
• A handful of coriander leaves
01 Mix all the mayo ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
02 To make the burgers, place the ginger, lemongrass, coriander and white fish in a food processor and blitz until finely chopped but not quite smooth. Stir the prawns, lime zest and red chilli into the mixture and season with salt and pepper. Shape into four patties, cover and place in the fridge until ready to cook.
03 Lightly oil the fish patties. Griddle on both sides for 4 minutes, remove and allow to rest. Combine the rice vinegar and mirin and lightly dress the radishes or beetroot. To serve, lightly toast the brioche rolls. Spoon on the green chilli mayo to the base of the bun and sit the burger on top. Add a helping of lettuce, coriander and radish to the burger, then top with the lid of the brioche.
In 2008 Geoff took part in the Forest of Dean Half Marathon, a distance he had undertaken quite a few times before. However, on this occasion disaster struck and Geoff never made it to the finish line. “Medics have told me subsequently that I had an unusual breakdown of muscle tissue causing a massive chemical imbalance, which stopped my heart.” Fortunately for Geoff a fellow runner, who happened to be a consultant anaesthetist, was on hand to help keep Geoff alive and initiate his rescue! Geoff’s heart stopped beating for itself for 16 minutes and the fact he remained conscious is due to a host of other runners who took turn at CPR, thus keeping him alive. The St John’s Ambulance defibrillator was eventually deployed, and he was rushed to emergency care by the unique ability of the Air Ambulance.
“I am of course ever grateful to all those different agents and I have given financial support appropriately, but I believe that at this 10th anniversary of the event I would like to make a special effort to raise funds for one of those for the Air Ambulance. Without their help I would not have made the recovery that I have. The organisation runs entirely upon charitable donations and I think this is a great opportunity to help the service continue and in so doing say thank you once again.”
Geoff is undertaking an arduous 5-day cycle through the southern part of Madagascar to raise funds for the Air Ambulance and would be so grateful to anyone who could sponsor him. The trip starts at the end of September and he is aiming to raise £5000 for the Air Ambulance www.justgiving.com/fundraising/geoff-boldero
