Recipe

I have always loved a good fish burger.  I think it started from my love of crab cake sandwiches and just ballooned from there.  With that said, I must admit, at home I have trouble using expensive ingredients like shrimp, salmon, or ahi tuna for burgers even though I wouldn't hestitate to order them out.  This leads me to usually reach for fish like tilapia for at home seafood burgers.  This version keeps things low carb by using flaxseed meal instead of the traditional Panko breadcrumbs that would often be used.  Then it is served between two yummy portabella mushrooms with avocado.  Delish.
