1 burger


  • 1 (6 ounce) tilapia fillet

  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce

  • 1 whole wheat hamburger bun

  • 1 leaf red cabbage

  • 3 slices avocado


  1. Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat until hot, about 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, rub tilapia with Cajun seasoning and set aside.

  3. Combine Greek yogurt and Sriracha in a bowl; mix well. Place mixture onto one side of the bun; add red cabbage and avocado.

  4. Cook fish in the hot skillet or griddle until almost black, but not burned, about 2 minutes per side; it will should be crunchy on the outside but flaky on the inside. Place fish on the prepared bun.

Cook's Notes:

You can use cod instead of tilapia.

I found sometimes making the avocado into a guacamole-type paste is easier when making this recipe.
