Pat fish dry with paper towels. Remove bones from fish. Place fish, egg white, and potato starch in a food processor. Cover and pulse 5 or 6 times or until coarsely chopped. Add ¼ cup chopped red onion, 2 tablespoons chopped dill pickle, green onions, lemon zest, salt and black pepper. Cover and pulse 2 or 3 times or until combined. Refrigerate mixture 30 minutes.
Divide mixture into 4 equal balls. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place fish balls in skillet; flatten with spatula to 2 inches thick. Cook 16 to 20 minutes or until 145° and golden brown, turning halfway through.
