Recipe

Burgers are something I can almost always get everyone to agree on for dinner.  Fish not so much.  So a fish burger is a happy compromise that usually works for everyone.  I decided to use tilapia for this burger since it's inexpensive and I don't feel like I am "wasting" it on a burger recipe.  However another sturdy white fish or salmon would work great as well depending on what you like best.  Topped with some fresh avocado, tomatoes, and sprouts - it's a delicious, lighter buger you'll love.

    This is the first time I've ever chopped fish in a food processor. It makes sense but never consider it before. This dish is de-lic-ious! It is better than any restaurant fish burger and so full of flavor and filling that I couldn't even eat it all at one go. This is one of our favorites!
