These Alaskan Pollock burgers were a completely new-to-me product, but have become a fast favorite of my whole family. I sure am glad I decided to give them a try when I came across them at Costco last weekend. They have a wonderful mild flavor and cook evenly, with the perfect texture, in less than 10 minutes. They would be fabulous served up on a bun, or even in a tortilla, but who can resist this gorgeous Alaskan Pollock Southwestern Salad? You know I can’t!

Containing all of the health benefits of seafood, these Alaskan Pollock Burgers are a fantastic alternative to beef burgers. They’re naturally packed with healthy Omega-3s, so easy to cook up and honestly “made” this salad. The avocado dressing is also a must. You may remember it from my Healthy Cherry Almond Broccoli Salad. I’ve been putting it on pretty much everything since making that salad.
