Chef finds inspiration at simple Barbados fish shack

ProChef SmartBrief | Feb 27, 2015

Chef Marcus Samuelsson discovered a simple, indulgent fish burger in a fish shack on the coast of Barbados and created a fancier version to serve stateside. The burger includes toasted white bread and a fried egg, which should be cooked in the same pan as the white fish for authentic fish-shack flavor. National Public Radio (02/26)
