Southwest Mahi Mahi Burger Salad

It is a busy night, so I am resolving it with a quick fix: pre-made mahi mahi burgers from Trader Joe’s.  No, they are not real paleo.  They have trace amounts of rice flour.  Luckily for me, I have adopted what I like to call a “modified paleo lifestyle” which allows me to overlook such things. These mahi mahi burgers can be found in the frozen section at Trader Joe’s. Don’t have a store near you? Feel free to substitute with any pre-made fish patty or burger.

Even with a hectic night ahead, I am able to have everything ready to go ahead of time and then just slap the burgers on the grill and assemble the salad last minute.

2 frozen mahi mahi burgers
1 head lettuce – washed and choped
1 red bell pepper – sliced into very thin strips
1 can of corn – drained
1 avocado sliced (if preparing in advance, wait to slice until ready to serve)
2 Tbsp. salsa

Dressing Ingredients:
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 Tbsp. Red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. Lime juice
1/4 tsp. Chili Powder

1. Whisk together dressing ingredients and put to the side.
2. Grill mahi mahi burgers according to packaging.
3. While the burgers are cooking, pile lettuce, red peppers, and corn on two plates.
4. Top salad with burger, avocado, and a spoonful if salsa and then drizzle with dressing.
