Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe is a must-try. I believe that this is one of the best burgers I have ever made. It is so juicy, tasty and just enchanting.

My kids had these as a traditional burger in a bun, with pickles, tomato, and condiments.

However, my husband and I loved it in my amazing side dish, Yellow Rice with Peppers and Tomato Sauce.

Goodness! That meal was fitting for a king and a queen. It was so tasty that I wished we had leftovers.

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

This burger is approachable with accessible ingredients. If you like tuna cakes, then you will love these for sure.

Although, I have to add that the taste is far better than tuna cakes. For instance, there is nothing like using fresh fish like this Alaskan halibut.

I feel a bit spoiled and extremely grateful because I get fresh fish from Alaska every month. Sitka Salmon Shares has been a blessing to me and my family.

We really love fish, but after getting from this monthly subscription, I know what a difference it has made for us.

Sometimes, it is total through back to the ’80s when we would vacation for weeks at the Adriatic Sea.

We would eat freshly caught seafood all the time. Nonetheless, over the years you forget how wild salmon taste or cod.

Simple Halibut Burger Recipe

My family loves going on fishing trips and I really appreciate all the catch that my boys would bring o our tend. However, can you even imagine getting a full box, a bounty of delicious fish every month?

We are talking about three species of wild salmon and four species of whitefish, all seasonally home-delivered to your doorstep through our Community Supported Fishery.

Perhaps Wild Alaskan sockeye salmon, pot-caught spot prawns, and more sounds better to you.

Now, let us talk about fish. I got my fish from Sitka Salmon Shares, but allow me to tell you a bit more about them.

I believe in this company, and I love what they are doing.

Fish is without a doubt the best one that I had in a long time. You will not be disappointed, plus the fish comes to your fantastic doorstep but read more about Sitka Salmon Shares below.

Simple Halibut Burger
Yield: Serves 4

Simple Halibut Burgers

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Instead of regular beef burgers why don't you make a little switch and make this amazingly delicious and I might add Simple Halibut Burger Recipe. You will not regret it because my halibut burgers are not only simple but extremely tasty as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound halibut burger meat
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs, plus 3 tablespoons extra

Instructions

  1. If your halibut burger meat is frozen then defrost first. I like placing mine in the fridge overnight and mix the ingredients in the morning so it could marinate all day in my fridge for the best-tasting burger.
  2. Prep and measure everything, then combine all the ingredients in one large bowl.
  3. Line a tray, plate or a baking sheet with silicone baking mat, parchment paper or even plastic wrap would work. This will get the burgers off the tray easily.
  4. Divide the mixture meat into 4 and roll each portion into a ball. Press the balls down gently with your hands to form 4 patties. Sometimes I make them a bit smaller; you could get 6 smaller patties or 4 thicker once. 4 patties would make a bit over 4 oz burger patty.
  5. Coat each patty with the breadcrumbs on both sides then place on the tray/plate. You can use any breadcrumbs on hand; panko, plain, Italian style, etc.
  6. Now, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to up to 12 hours. Allowing burgers to marinate in the fridge will help them bind better as well as cook easier, plus the flavor will be that much tastier.
  7. Turn your stove to medium-high and heat cast-iron skillet or just a frying pan if you do not have a cast-iron skillet.
  8. Add the patties, in batches, and cook until browned on the bottom, 2 minutes on one side then flip and cook 3 minutes on the other, flip again and let t cook for an additional two to three minutes, adjusting the heat if necessary. The patties will feel firmer in the center when done.
  9. They are great the next day as well, just make sure to refrigerate them.

Notes

You may use some dill as well for the fresh burgers. Also, green onions work well with this mixture.

Sausage and Vegetable Frittata
Yield: Serves 2

Sausage and Vegetable Frittata

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

When it comes to breakfast or brunch Frittata is my go-to meal. It's easy for you to make, affordable so you can feed your whole family on a budget and so delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 large eggs, mixed
  • 1/2 tbsp. Oil
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 pound Italian Sausage, sauteed (casing removed)
  • 2 Scallions, chopped, reserve some of the green parts for garnish
  • 4 Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 Green Pepper, diced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons Heavy Whipped Cream
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat a skillet, until almost smoking point then drizzle a bit of oil coating the bottom of the frying pan or a skillet.
  2. If the sausage is in casting, remove it and add the sausage into the skillet. Break it into small pieces and cook until cooked through, about 5 minutes on medium high. Remove the sausage from the skillet and onto a plate.
  3. In the skillet add butter, allow it to melt then add chopped green onions, saute for a few seconds, and add sliced mushrooms as well as green pepper.
  4. Allow it to cook for about 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat then put the cooked sausage back to the skillet and mix it all together. Season it with a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Stir well to coat.
  5. Meanwhile, mix eggs until they are combined, then add heavy whipped cream and just a pinch of salt. Mix it well until well combined.
  6. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet over the sausage mixture, and let it cook for a couple of minutes on the stove top.
  7. You may flip it on the other side and add cheese, OR preheat a broiler on high and cook under broiler for about 30-40 seconds. Make sure 1. That you have Oven SAFE skillet or frying pan. 2. Watch it so the frittata does not burn because it is under the broiler and it will bake fast.
  8. After 30-40 seconds, take the frittata out and add cheese. Put it back in the oven again for another 30-40 seconds or until the cheese is melted.
  9. Take it out of the oven when the cheese is bubbly and completely melted.
  10. Garnish frittata with those reserved green parts of scallions and serve hot and immediately!

Notes

  • You may use milk instead of whipped cream.
  • you can use ground beef instead of Italian sausage.
  • If you dislike mushrooms please omit. You may use whatever you wish in the frittata.
  • Provolone cheese or mild cheddar might work well in the frittata.
  • Use as many eggs as you can eat. I usually go by two per person but that all depends. I like adding one extra because my husband or my boys love eggs.

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole, in my opinion, is one of the best side dishes for the holiday season, as well as all year round weeknight dinner dish.

I do not make this often. Simply because my family cannot stop eating it until the baking dish is licked clean. We just love this meal so much.

Well, what’s not to like, right? We have creamy potatoes, cheese, and bacon. It literally cannot get any better than that. All my favorite things in one bite.

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole recipe - Easy, tasty and a perfect side dish for your weeknight meals or holiday gatherings.

Ever since we adopted a low carb lifestyle, my husband and I do not eat potatoes. I know, it is sad.

I do miss potatoes the most, but I gotta stick to what’s the best for me.

Anyhow, my kids reminded me of this dish just last week. I was so excited to make it for them.

So, with that being said, I realized that I never in these 9 years of blogging posted this incredibly easy and I must add a tasty recipe.

Now, you can serve this with a side of steamed veggies, or with some meat.

I feel like it is absolutely perfect for holiday family gatherings, game parties, potlucks, etc.

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole, in my opinion, is one of the best side dishes for the holiday season, as well as all year round weeknight dinner dish.

Well, I know that many of you, especially veteran-moms like me, have come up with a similar recipe. Perhaps even exactly the same.

However, the point of my blog is to post all kinds of recipes. Some going to be easy and some a bit harder, but none complicated.

Of course, the focus is on easy dishes. 30 to 45 minutes from start to finish. Nobody got the time to spend hours in the kitchen and you shouldn’t.

To be honest, I do not spend hours in the kitchen, unless it is Thanksgiving or me testing recipes. I don’t mind spending time in the kitchen, but it is really unnecessary.

Aso, you can use potato flakes, but I believe that freshly made mashed potatoes taste so much better. You’re welcome!!!

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole
Yield: 6 SERVINGS

Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

Easy, tasty and a perfect side dish for your weeknight meals or holiday gatherings.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds Russet Potatoes
  • 5 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 cup Sour Cream
  • ½ cup Half and Half, a splash more if needed
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • Kosher Salt to taste
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, split in half
  • Topping
  • 5-6 Slices of Hickory Smoked Bacon
  • 1 tbsp. Chopped Chives or Green Onions, green part

Instructions

  1. Peel and dice the potatoes in the equal size. Place the potatoes in the large pot and cover with water. Add a generous pinch of salt. Boil the potatoes over medium high heat in the water about 20 minutes or until tender.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Drain the potatoes well, then transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, sour cream, milk, garlic powder, and salt. Smash the potatoes with a fork or potato masher. For the creamiest mashed potatoes use a hand mixer. Mix until smooth in texture. It is the best blending tool for it.
  4. Add half of the shredded cheddar cheese and fold in to combine.
  5. Place mashed potatoes in the baking dish and try to make the top smooth. Then add the rest of the shredded cheese.
  6. Bake uncovered for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted.
  7. While the Casserole is baking, cook bacon. After it is crunchy, transfer it to kitchen paper towel then crumble it.
  8. Top baked mashed potato casserole with bacon and chopped chives or green onions.

Notes

Choose higher starch potatoes, such as Russet or Yukon gold for the best and most flavor-packed mashed potatoes.

You can make this dish ahead and store in the fridge. Just bake it.

Personally, I do not like storing it longer than a day, but if you ever stored potatoes in the fridge then you do whatever you feel is the best for you.

If you do not eat bacon, you may use other smoked products such as turkey bacon or smoked bits of beef or chicken.
