New Costco Find: Kale and Feta Cheese Salmon Burgers

These Savory Fish and Superfood "Burgers" from Costco
Are Perfect for Both Medifast and Low Carb Dieters

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.

So I usually "send" my husband there to stock up on staples, but then I never know when they have an amazing new product.

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.

Even better.

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.

Lunch du jour
Update: I ate these again for lunch (third day in a row). Out of tomato so I added some OPA Jalapeno Ranch dressing. Mmmmmmmmm.

  1. I agree with you, these burgers/patties are fantastic. I am always on the look out for something to eat at breakfast time because as much as I love eggs, they sometimes make me nauseated. These little guys hit the spot. In fact I've had them two days in a row for breakfast. I too am afraid my Sam's Club will quit carrying them, but I will be buying them for as long as they're selling them!

  2. I like my eggs not-for-breakfast, too. Can't handle them too early in the morning.
