Yield: 6 burgers


  • 1 pound raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1 ½ pounds fresh (or frozen and thawed) tilapia
  • ⅔ cup seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup light sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle sauce
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 6 whole wheat buns, toasted
  • 1 avocado, sliced for topping


Coconut Peach Salsa:

  • 2 ripe peaches, peeled and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons toasted coconut
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • Salt + pepper to taste


Add shrimp and tilapia to a food processor and pulse until chopped. Transfer to a bowl and add egg, panko bread crumbs, garlic, mustard, salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder and basil.

Mix until combined, then form tilapia and shrimp into patties (form tightly with your hands, trying to prevent cracking). Heat a skillet over medium heat and add half of the olive oil, then cook patties until golden on each side, about 3-4 minutes. Repeat with remaining burgers.

In a bowl, stir together sour cream, chipotle sauce, lime juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread on top of burgers, then layer with avocado and peach salsa.

For salsa: Stir ingredients together and serve on top of burgers.

To make it a meal, grill some fresh corn, throw together a tasty avocado and blueberry salad, and pour a glass of some crisp, cold, white wine!

Now get ready to sit down and enjoy a taste experience that’ll put the “zing” in amazing!
