The third in an on-going series of experiments to make burgers comprised of frozen non-beef patties (see also 13.066 Chicken Burger; 13.070 Cheese Tonkatsu Burger), this time with fish katsu.

The cutlets appear skinless in the photo.

I had high expectations, but it turned out hit and miss.  In lieu of lettuce, sauerkraut was included, pairing nicely with the tartare sauce to provide a zippy flavor profile.  However, the cutlets came with bits of the skins still attached – common in packaged fish katsu products (see for comparison 13.026 Fish Katsu) – which gave a kinda fishy aftertaste, though in fairness it wasn’t really noticeable in the overall context of the burger.  Oh well.

Half a slice of American cheese, like the Filet-o-Fish (9.019 Filet-o-Fish).
