We all have preconceived notions about somethings, and when it comes to food, I think fish is often subject to a bunch of erroneous thoughts. It’s smelly. It’s fishy. It’s slimy. It’s just gross.
But that’s not true, not in the slightest. Fish is none of those things when it is high quality and prepared well. It’s full of nutrition, delicious, and a blank canvas for other flavors. Plus, in the summer it is a light protein that really suits the season. Fish is my main protein for dinner at least five nights a week.
You know what other food we like in the summer? Burgers. That’s why I am in love with Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers. I picked some up on my last trip to Costco, and if you know anything about me, you know I love Costco as much as I love fish for dinner.
These burgers are awesome because they are gluten free, have less fat, calories, and cholesterol than traditional beef burgers, and are loaded with Omega-3s that help us in many ways, including keeping our heart healthy and maybe even fighting off cancer.
If the health benefits aren’t enough to convince you, how about the fact that these burgers are super easy to prepare. I cooked mine in the oven according to the package instructions and then broiled them for a minute to get the edges a little crispy. And they don’t taste fishy at all. Because they are full of spices, I promise even someone who thinks they don’t like fish, will really enjoy Pollock Burgers.
Plus, we’re talking about Wild Alaskan Pollock here. No farmed fish, no questionable mystery meat, no chemicals. Just real food. I love that you can see the pieces of fish in the burgers and there are plenty of them.

I know you’re wondering how I swapped my burger. I turned it into a Guacamole Pollock Burger. Not only is this burger gluten free since I served it on a tender bib lettuce bun, but it is full of some super healthy ingredients that also happen to be some of my favorite foods.
We’re talking about avocado, Sriracha, onion, tomatoes, and parsley. I ran out of cilantro, but it would be an awesome addition here as well. All those classic flavors of guacamole are on this burger and complement the flavor of the fish so well. The textures – creamy, crispy, crunchy – and the flavors – spicy, refreshing, acidic, salty – complement each other so well and make this a burger I can’t wait to eat again.
