It’s What’s for Dinner? Wednesday again! After three weeks of Indian recipes I decided to change things up for you today. This week’s healthy recipe is for tilapia burgers.

Even though it’s technically fall here in Houston, TX it still feels like summer (the forecast says we’re getting up to 90 degrees today!).  To help you enjoy the feel of summer even if you’re starting to experience more seasonal temperatures, I thought a burger would be a fun dinner idea.

I know most burgers are made of meat, but if you haven’t tried the lighter feel of a fish burger yet, you are in for a real treat.  I know I enjoyed it, anyways. Of course, I’ve been making fishy burgers (er…well, that’s what they are even if it sounds suspicious!) for a while.  One of my favorites to make is my salmon or Krabby Patty Recipe.  It’s super quick and easy-be sure to check it out later if you haven’t been a fan for a long time 🙂

So what about the tilapia burger recipe I have? It’s pretty easy too. You’ll just need a food processor to really mix up the ingredients and you’ll be good to go. Let’s get cooking!

Here’s what you’ll need to serve the meal to four:

1lb tilapia
1 egg
juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 jalapeño
1 cup spinach
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray

Here’s how to put it all together:

Step One: Cut your tilapia filet into smaller pieces (1 inch pieces work well) and add it and all other ingredients to your food processor.  Process the mix to make it less chunky allow the different flavors to be evenly dispersed.

Step Two: Form your tilapia mix into four patties.

Step Three: Cook your tilapia patties on the grill or in the oven on a grill pan at 375 degrees Fahrenheit after spraying the pan with cooking spray.  Cook until the fish is done or about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Step Four: Add your finishing touches. Enjoy your tilapia burger as you would any burger! We are enjoying ours on top of a salad, but you could just as easily enjoy them on a hamburger bun.
