A couple weeks back my belly posed interest in this recipe from one of my favorite recipe blog.. that girl has quite the eye (and brain) for delicious recipes.
Sure, I’ve made multiple versions of veggie burgers, salmon burgers, turkey burgers, chicken burgers, meat burgers, and of course the classic beef burgers. But, TILAPIA burgers? Well.. why the heck not?
I took How Sweet Eats’ basics and added a few tweaks of my own, purely for preference and mainly because I didnt have a couple of the ingredients on her list- so I made it work with what I had.
Making a fish burger seems quite fancy- but it seriously is among the quickest meals I made last week. “Quick” has been slowly added to my vocabulary. In the past I took pride in strategically taking steps to make my meal perfect.
But now, if it has more than five I’m losing interest.
Our lives have gone in fast forward at high speed, and it comes down to ‘oh, it’s about time for dinner.. gotta make a meal, and it should probably be on the table before 9pm.’
Trying to fit everything in has become difficult. But a healthy meal on the table is still a priority.
No grill needed for this recipe- great for those handicapped by apartment living. (Not for long, though!!)
Don’t over crowd your pan. If you can tell by the darkening of the cooking spray in my skillet- it got a tad bit too hot. Careful with that medium high heat.
If you do anything remotely close to this recipe, make the salsa. Who knew watermelon and avocado would be so flippin’ delicious.
The freshness of the salsa makes this burger on the top of my list. Plus, I had a CROP of watermelon taking over my refridgerator, and this was a super simple and YUMMY way to use some of it up.
Of course- her pictures were MUCH more beautiful.
My daily perusing of her beautifully blogged food..
…blogger envy becomes me.
But still- I’m pretty sure, blog pretty or not, this burger was mega delicious.
