Method
    1. Prepare the Lime Mayo:
      In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lime zest, and lime juice. Season with salt and black pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
    2. Coat the Fish:
      Season the fish fillets with salt and black pepper. Dip each fillet into the flour, then into the beaten eggs, and finally coat with a mixture of breadcrumbs and sesame seeds, pressing gently to adhere. Place the coated fillets on a tray and refrigerate for 15 minutes to set.
    3. Fry the Fish:
      In a large frying pan, heat enough vegetable oil over medium-high heat for shallow frying. Fry the coated fish fillets for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.
    4. Assemble the Burgers:
      Spread a generous amount of lime mayo on the toasted burger buns. Place a crispy sesame fish fillet on the bottom half of each bun. Top with lettuce leaves, sliced tomatoes, red onion rings, and fresh cilantro leaves. Cover with the top half of the bun.
    5. Serve Immediately:
      Serve the Crispy Sesame Fish Burger with Lime Mayo immediately, accompanied by your favorite side dishes.
    Pro Tips
    • Sesame Sensation: Toast sesame seeds lightly in a dry pan before coating the fish for an enhanced nutty flavor.
    • Mayo Magic: Allow the lime mayo to sit in the refrigerator for a while to intensify the lime infusion before assembling the burger.
    • Crisp Perfection: Control the oil temperature when frying for a crispy exterior and tender interior of the fish fillets.
    • Bun Brilliance: Spread a thin layer of lime mayo on both halves of the bun to create a barrier, keeping the bread from getting soggy.
    • Garnish Gracefully: Add a final sprinkle of fresh cilantro or parsley over the burger just before serving for a burst of color and freshness.
