These Savory Fish and Superfood "Burgers" from Costco
I hate shopping at Costco. I have mini panic attacks just from the sheer
size of the store, overwhelming selection, and hoards of families
loading up on jumbo bags of hot dogs. Plus, I am convinced many parents
take their 2.5 kids with them in a conspiracy to block my cart.

Yet, despite my detestation of the Costco shopping experience, I love having Costco food in my freezer.
Like the Kale and Feta Cheese Salmon Burgers from J. Scott Foods.
The last time I went to Costco I noticed this product in the frozen fish section where in the past I had picked up my ordinary salmon burgers. The package immediately caught my eye since I love salmon, kale and feta and figured they would all taste even better together.
And I was right.
In fact, I could eat one of these burgers every day for lunch. Plain. On a plate.
They are that good.
Yesterday I got fancy and chopped one up with some avocado and just-plucked tomato.
Despite their being called burgers, these babies need neither buns nor sauce. They are savory and have a perfect texture, whether you microwave them or saute in a pan with a little olive oil. (Curiously, the box recommends baking in the oven, but who has time for that?)
What is especially remarkable is their nutritional profile: one burger has 19 grams of protein, only 2 grams of carbs and -- get this -- only 130 calories.
I searched the Internet for reviews on this product and could not find a single one. I have no idea why since this may be the best single product Costco has ever carried.
Of course, that means they will probably stop carrying it soon.
Let's hope they have a long freezer life, because I am going to take some Xanax and head back to Costco to stock up on these . . . just in case.
