this. Um, wow. Like, I'm not sure what I exactly expected a mahi mahi to look like, but it wasn't quite that. Big ol' paint dropcloth looking thing. Um...yumm?
Well, in burger form...absolutely.
There's many fine and wonderful and fancy ways to enjoy a good slab of mahi mahi, but for a quick, easy, and convenient preparation, it may be hard to be beat Trader Joe's Mahi Mahi Burgers. These frozen fish pucks are yet another example what draws me to TJ's seafood products - it's overall fresh and clean vibe. So many other frozen seafood I've had is salty or mushy or overly fishy or just off.
turkey burger - a little softer, yes, but as close as a fish can get to a burger, these do. We're impressed. And even our kiddos love them - our just-turned-four year old M grins with delight every time we tell her fish burgers our on the menu.
Put anything on these burgers you like - we particularly enjoyed some salsa or slaw or (as pictured) the chile lime powder. It's light, good eating. The box of four runs about $6, which isn't awful for some decent quality fish, and as a pro tip, they even reheat well without stinking up the joint (so says Sandy, I'd be too chicken to try that). Great summer time pick up to toss something a little different on the grill, so we're going with some high marks here. I took awful pics of the nutritional stats so see them here.
Bottom line: Trader Joe's Mahi Mahi Burgers: 8.5 out of 10 Golden Spoons
Love these!... should I assume u grilled these (photo)? mine are done in the oven and aren't as dark...I put these way above the salmon burgers...ReplyDelete
Oh yes, definitely grilled...and on a grill that needed a good cleaning tooReplyDelete
TMI (on the grill cleaning)....I know u were testing your immune system.. eh? lol :-)Delete
I throw these in a skillet and cut them up for some protein on a salad! Yum!ReplyDelete
That's what I've been doing, too. Or I throw beans and onions and spinach into the skillet near the end of the cooking time.Delete
I'm not a big fan of fish specifically fish that are fishy tasting. Are these really fishy tasting or more like Cod or Pollock?ReplyDelete
I buy these regularly... they are not fishy at allDelete
We have these burgers pretty often. We like them with a slice of TJ's Havarti cheese, sliced avocado (or TJ's guacamole), and sliced red onion. Delicious!ReplyDelete
TJs was giving samples of these a summer or two ago and my son (then 7 yrs old) loved them & begged me to buy them. We've been hooked ever since! A staple in our house during the summerReplyDelete
i cooked them in irish butter on the stove top and put a slice of cheddar cheese on it, ate one on no-carb "oopsie" bread. #ketogenicReplyDelete
After seeing that you gave them an 8.5 and reading these comments, I bought a package. I didn't cook them for a couple of weeks as I was really nervous about them being fishy. Had them tonight and they're AMAZING! I'm so glad I read your dependable review and the comments. Finally, a delicious "fish burger".ReplyDelete
Look up Wolf Fish...........Fortunately I ate some of this delicious fish before seeing the picture!ReplyDelete
Made fish tacos with these, love them.ReplyDelete
They are really good topped with KimchiReplyDelete
