In the chaos of launching and running a start-up (Vie) things can get pretty hectic and I am finding that lately I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like to here. That’s about to change. However, for the here & now, here’s a recipe from our Whole Foods Meal Plan at Vie that I can share with you. My new favorite recipe!
You can make these with any firm-fleshed fish on hand. Try salmon, tuna, tilapia or my favorite: cod. We’ve been making these a lot at home lately, and what with the craziness of running a food-based business, at least there’s always something to eat!
I’ve been testing this recipe in many different ways over the last few weeks and you get to just sit back and benefit. Pretty great, huh?
These are a perfect light antidote to heavy picnic food that you would normally see on a Memorial Day grill-out spread. Bring this over to a friend’s or just have them ready to go for you and your family. Best part is you can make many at one time, bake them to reduce fat from frying and they travel really well. Just bring all of the ingredients and assemble once you arrive at your destination or are ready to eat. Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! Creole Blackened Fish Burgers with Avocado Relish
1 lb Wild Caught, USA fresh mahi mahi fillets (or any type of seafood steak) S
2 Tbsp Creole seasoning
2 tsp olive oil or butter
½ cup mayo
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
½ tsp salt
1/2 red onion, sliced into rounds
1 pkg brioche buns (located in the bakery) or Rudi’s organic hamburger buns S
1 Avocado, sliced (optional)
½ cup fresh salsa or pico de gallo
1 head Bibb Lettuce, washed and leaves separated
- Coat fish in Creole seasoning and saute for 4-5 minutes on each side (depending on thickness) in a skillet with olive oil or butter. Or better yet…to make a large batch, simply coat fish and bake in a preheated 375 F oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on thickness.
- While fish is cooking prep other ingredients and to serve assemble burgers!* Combine mayo, garlic, paprika and salt to make aioli to spread on the buns. Combine avocado and salsa to make avocado relish!
