Grilled Alaskan pollock teriyaki pineapple fish burger sounds like a mouthful, but it’s the best kind of delicious mouthful. A white fish burger with homemade teriyaki sauce topped with sweet grilled pineapple and sliced avocado is burger deliciousness without the guilt.
Do you dare to swap your burger? I love a good beef, chicken or turkey burger but I also enjoy something on the lighter side. This is when I like to swap my regular burger for a wild Alaskan pollock burger.
What is pollock?
Pollock is a mild flavored, delicate, flaky white fish, very much like cod. It is very adaptable which makes it the perfect fish to make into frozen burgers. What I love about a good fish burger is not only eating something on the lighter side, but you can incorporate so many delicious flavors with the burger and the topping possibilities are endless. Trident Seafoods® Alaskan Pollock Burgers are a delicious alternative to the heavy burgers we usually enjoy with 178% less fat, 94% less calories and 25% less cholesterol.
Today I’m giving these burgers the tropical treatment with my homemade (and sugar-free) teriyaki sauce made with soy sauce, honey, ginger & garlic. The burger is grilled for 5 minutes per side and served on a toasted whole wheat bun with crispy lettuce and topped with slice of sweet grilled pineapple, sliced avocado and teriyaki sauce. This is a delicious burger I want to eat all summer, and furthermore I will not feel guilty doing it.
There is very little work involved in the preparation and cooking of this burger because you can cook them from frozen. How cool is that? Talk about convenience when you don’t have to defrost, that means you can eat sooner.
The hardest part (which is not so hard) is making the easy teriyaki sauce. It is made in just 6 easy steps.
When the sauce is ready, it’s time to prepare the pineapple rings. Also not difficult and please use a fresh pineapple there’s nothing like it. Done in only 4 easy steps.
Once the burger and pineapple rings are grilled, it’s time for the fun part. It’s time to build-a-burger.
Because life seems busier than ever, we all like to keep our freezer stocked for those days that you can’t make it to the grocery store or when you’re craving a burger but don’t always want to or have the time to buy the ingredients to make them from scratch. Trident Seafoods® Alaskan Pollock Burgers are what I choose to keep in my freezer for this very purpose.
You can stock-up on these burger the next time you’re at Costco (and if you’re like me, it’s every week). You can find them in the frozen food aisle.
I knew I had a winning burger when I took my first bite. The mild fish burger paired with the natural sweetness and tang of the homemade teriyaki sauce (that is not too sweet because honey was used) along with the finish of the creamy avocado. I was ready to go for seconds. This is my new favorite burger for the summer, what is yours?
