Note: Today is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart, which means it's NOT a Meatless Friday, but we're sharing this recipe anyway! Save it for next week if you like; my kids will eat Mahi Burgers any day of the week without moaning that I'm serving fish--again. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do. --Barb
Nothing says "summer" like burgers on the grill. Guess what: you don't have to give up burgers just because it's Friday! These mahi burgers, topped with grilled pineapple, are a delicious and healthy meatless alternative to hamburgers. Mahi burgers are easy to make, too.
In my local supermarket, flash-frozen fish products are found near the seafood counter, not with the other frozen foods. We've tried pollock, salmon and mahi burgers; they're all delicious, but the mahi burgers pair best with grilled pineapple. For a extremely low-carb dinner, skip the bun and just serve the burger with the pineapple and other desired toppings.
Mahi Burgers with Grilled Pineapple
4 frozen mahi burgers
4 fresh pineapple rings
Grill mahi burgers according to package directions. When burgers are nearly done, brush pineapple rings with a bit of olive oil to prevent sticking. Add pineapple rings to grill and cook until pineapple is warm and begins to caramelize.
Serve on buns (if desired) with honey-mustard dressing and lettuce.
