More Ideas with FishI am pleased to present my recipe for Fish Meatballs to you here. Perfect burger from fish, also called Bremer in Northern Germany, I serve you here with a homemade potato salad.
Fish fillets processed into meatballs are the classic possibility to use unequal pieces of fish in a wonderful way. The fish ingredients are quite freely selectable. That’s why grandma used to make these fish balls, just like certain fast food chains did.
Why are fish meatballs so popular: Without question the great hearty fine taste makes them so popular. They are also easier to digest and also healthier than their meat counterparts and a great alternative and variety in home cooking.
So, it’s worth trying it once. Danger of repetition is given. Have fun and good luck!

1. Which Fish is suitable?
I still remember my time as a young fisherman, we usually had an overstock of whitefish in the lake in summer and the bream and crucian carp were wonderful to catch. With this introduction I would like to answer the question right away, both freshwater fish and saltwater fish are suitable. In Bavaria and Austria, carp, pike-perch, catfish or even whitefish like to come to the fish plant, in the north we find cod, hake, cod and salmon in the fish mince.
Process fish fillets without skin and bones – the mincer reaches its limits with large bones.
2. Meat Mincer or Thermomix?
The miracle pot is at best a kitchen cutter, the fish mince will be more even if you process it through the mincer.
Of course, the magic kettle will make the fish fillets small at some point, but heat is generated which causes the fish mass to coagulate.
If you can’t help it, I have a tip for you from the professional kitchen: Cut the fish fillets into small pieces, then put them back into the freezer, and only then chop them in the kitchen cutter.
3. Bread and Onions through the Mincer or not?
In many recipes you will find soaked bread cubes and sweaty onion cubes as an addition to minced fish. In general you can:
- Bread soaked and onions finely sliced and stewed
add whole to the minced fish or
- Put soaked bread and cooked onions through the mincer.
For a long time now I have tended to use the second method, because it is sure to succeed. For this I let all ingredients go through the mincer and get an excellent malleable, even mass.
4. Is Breadcrumbs required?
Use the breadcrumbs to stabilise the minced fish mass. The addition of breadcrumbs binds the mass better and so the meatball remains stable when fried in the pan.
The classic Bremer is always additionally dressed with breadcrumbs. Place the shaped loaves in the breadcrumbs for breading, then fry in the pan for frying.
5. Does it even go in the Oven?
In breadcrumbs turned out loafs dry in the oven unfortunately. Without breadcrumbs the loafs don’t get a nice colour and I personally don’t like them.
My advice as a cook is, please fry them in a pan and then keep them warm in the oven at 150°C hot air for 10-15 minutes and cook through.
It tastes better fried in the pan!
You can easily freeze the finished planters or reheat them in the oven!
