Summer nights can be just as busy as school night dinners. With late swim meets and kids wanting to stay at the pool longer,I am always on the search for easy weeknight meals that I can grill. Who wants to put the oven on while it is 90 degrees outside? Not me. My kids love tacos and during the summer I like to substitute taco or beef meet with fish. In memory of our Alaska cruise last summer, I thought I would try using Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers for a quick substitute in our fish tacos. No extra trip to the fish market as these patties will be waiting for me in the freezer.
Wild Alaska Pollock is the ideal fish species, mild in flavor like cod and provides all the benefits of seafood. These frozen patties found at Costco. The best part is that you grill them frozen so there is not much to think about. Plus unlike beef burgers with high fat and calories (178% less fat, 94% less Calories, 25% less Cholesterol).
I made this easy grilled fish taco recipe in about 30 minutes tops. We had just run in from swim team and I had very hungry kids so I am glad to be able to pull this together so quickly. Throw the pollock burgers on the outdoor grill or stove top grill like we did. They cook in 5 minutes per side.
While the seafood is cooking, you can make the Avocado cream and the red cabbage slaw. They sound fancy but come together in minutes.
I found inspiration for this sauce from my Terra’s Kitchen Box. I decided to add cilantro for some extra flavor to the fish. You just throw everything into a food processor. In under a minute you have this great spread for your fish tacos.
The Red cabbage slaw is just as easy, with just a few ingredients that you are already using in the avocado spread. Cut up some red cabbage, red onion and add cilantro and lime juice for the perfect topping to these easy fish tacos. I just love the color contrast in this grilled fish tacos dish.
By now your Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers should be finished grilling.
Cook the corn tortillas over an open flame to get rid of that raw flavor.
Layer some avocado cream and some sliced Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burger onto your tortilla.
I told you Trident Seafoods® Alaskan Pollock Burgers are versatile and can be used in different ways other than just between a bun!
