Fish burgers with grilled pineapple and sesame slaw on I'm Not the Nanny

The grill is usually my husband’s domain, but this weekend I got to woman the flames. I took this opportunity to try something different. Usually we grill chicken and hamburgers, but I made fish burgers with grilled pineapple.

My meat loving family wasn’t sure about swapping out our beef burgers for fish ones. They were pleasantly surprised by how hearty and flavorful the Trident Seafoods® Alaskan Pollock Burgers were. They’re also healthier than your traditional beef burgers.

Everyone had seconds. Even I was impressed by how tasty the burgers were. My husband, who grew up eating fast food fried fish burgers, told me he would never eat one again as long as we had the pollock burgers in our freezer.

Grilled pineapple

Pollock is a mild white fish, so it’s a the perfect canvas for bold flavors. In this case, I topped the burgers with sweet, grilled pineapple and a tangy ginger sesame slaw. I’m partial to sweet and tangy flavors–blame it on my Vietnamese upbringing. Plus pineapple just tastes like summer!

A note on pineapple: Definitely go for fresh pineapple in this recipe. If you’re intimidated by cutting a whole pineapple, most stores will sell pre-sliced pineapple. Don’t use canned, which will fall apart on the grill.

Fish burgers on grill

The fish burgers were super easy to grill. Just follow the package instructions. Place a frozen patty directly on the grill (or pan fry) and cook on medium high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side. Since I didn’t have a lot of prep work for the fish burgers, I even got all fancy with my grill marks! Don’t they look good?

You can assemble the burgers before serving for the wow presentation. Or set out all the fixings so your friends can DIY the fish burger assembly.

I love how easy they fish burgers are to cook. I pan fried one the other day for my lunch salad. I think I’m going to use them to make fish tacos with a mango salsa. Lucky for me, the Trident Seafoods Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers are currently buy 1, get 1 free at Costco!
