This fresh and delicious wrap recipe makes a perfect meal for summer nights. Made with Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers, homemade mango salsa, tangy mayo spread, crunchy cabbage, and avocado, it’s the perfect swap for a hamburger when you want to grill AND eat a light, nutrient-packed meal.
When it comes to summer meal planning, I like to make as many dinners as possible on the grill. Not only do I love the charred flavor that the grill gives to food, but I want to keep the heat and the mess out of the kitchen as much as I can.
I’ve been wanting to find an alternative to a traditional beef burger that would be just as tasty and easy to prepare, but a little lighter and healthier. So when I saw the Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers in the frozen foods section at Costco, I had to give them a try. They have 178% less fat, 94% less Calories, 25% less Cholesterol than traditional beef burgers. PLUS, they provide a ton of wonderful nutrients, particularly healthy Omega-3s.
If you’re not familiar with Wild Alaskan Pollock, it’s a white fish species that’s mild in flavor, similar to cod. These pollock burgers from Trident® are lightly seasoned, so they have plenty of flavor on their own, but I wanted to come up with a recipe that would boost the nutrient and flavor factor even more by pairing them with some of my favorite fresh, fish-friendly ingredients. (How’s that for a tongue-twister?)
What first came to mind was MANGO. Mango and white fish are just made for each other.
I made a simple mango salsa by combining diced mango with some cilantro, red onion, jalapeno, and a little bit of lime juice. (see printable recipe below for more details)
While those ingredients mingled for a bit, I whisked some more fresh lime juice and hot sauce into a little bit of mayonnaise to create a flavorful sauce, and also sliced up some avocado and purple cabbage. If you haven’t had raw purple cabbage with fish before, you’re in for a treat. It just adds a delicious crunch that perfectly balances the delicate texture of fish.
While I was working on the add-ins, my husband got to work grilling up the pollock burgers. (If you don’t have a grill, or don’t feel like grilling, you can also pan-fry or oven-bake the burgers with equally awesome results.)
When the burgers were done, it was time to assemble the wrap. I used lavash bread for my wraps, but you could also use a flour tortilla, a pita or even some naan. I sliced the pollock burgers into strips, and then added the mayonnaise spread, the sliced cabbage, mango salsa, and some sliced avocado.
The combination of flavors and textures is heavenly, and it looks pretty, too. 🙂
Wrap the bread tightly round the ingredients, and roll it up. Slice diagonally through the middle and serve! My family really loved this meal, and I found myself craving it again the next day.
I know we’re going to be eating these wraps throughout the summer and beyond. It’s a meal I can feel good about serving and eating, and it’s really simple to prepare. If you make this recipe, please come back and tell me what you think!
