1. Into a food processor place the fish, spring onions, 1/4 cup chopped herbs, chilli, egg yolk, lemon zest breadcrumbs and sesame seeds. Pulse until combined but not too fine.

2. Shape the mixture into four burger patties. Cover and refrigerate until required.

3. Make tartare sauce by mixing the mayonnaise, 1/4 cup mixed herbs, chopped egg, capers, gherkin and lemon juice together in a small bowl, and set aside while you cook the burgers.
