Floribbean Fish Burgers with Tropical Sauce Recipe

“I like to make fish burgers because they are lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than other ones. I figure that I can use some avocado because there's not a lot of other fat in the burgers.” —Virginia Anthony of Jacksonville, Florida

"I've made this recipe twice now, and it's been a HUGE hit both times, even with the kids! We like relatively spicy food, but I'd say this recipe is boldly flavored, but not too spicy. I made it gluten-free by using gluten-free bread crumbs in place of regular. Very, very tasty!"

"The sauce was excellent. The fish was good, but a little spicy. I think I will lay off on the caribbean spice a bit next time. In all it was good though."
