Gochujang Pollock Burger

Gochujang pollock burgers, anyone?

You may be all, “gochu-what?” but trust me on this. Now is the time to be seeking out this spicy Korean condiment and adding it to absolutely everything.

Start simple, like with these gochujang pollock burgers. They’re a great option for summer, especially because they are ready in a flash. I’m totally down with using some shortcuts on the way to a great meal, aren’t you?

I picked up these Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers at Costco last week. We eat fish weekly, but my kids aren’t always enthused about salmon, even if it’s salmon kebabs. The mild flavor of pollock means it’s easy on the kids’ expanding palates, and the adults can enjoy the Korean-influenced customizations.

Plus, everyone loves a burger! I serve them up on whole wheat buns, and offer crisp lettuce leaves for those who prefer a lighter meal. I like Bibb lettuce best for burgers, but sturdy green leaf lettuce or larger Romaine leaves work as well.

You can slice up the burgers and make them into tacos or wraps, as well. Being able to change up dishes like this on the fly are part of what makes them so great for family meals.

Considering how often we incorporate fish into our diets, I appreciate that these Alaskan Pollock Burgers are wild-caught. Sustainability is important to me in all the foods we eat, so I make sure to look for the best choices in our seafood. Choosing the best seafood and combining it with our favorite flavors makes dinner something to look forward to.

These gochujang pollock burgers are full of flavor. The combination of spicy gochujang, creamy mayo, and pickled kimchi means that dinner is anything but boring!

Plus, spicy foods and fermented foods have been shown to have health benefits, making this meal even better for you. Once you factor in all the benefits of eating fish like omega-3s and lower cholesterol, it’s kind of a no-brainer. Which is ironic, because eating fish actually helps your brain.

Feel free to adjust the amount of gochujang to your tastes. I used a prepared gochujang sauce. If you use gochujang paste, you might need to use more or less.

  1. Ooh, this is such a good idea! I never thought to mix gochujang with mayo to top burgers before. Definitely going to give this a try this week.
