Trader Joe’s Mahi Mahi Burgers Review

Trader Joe's Mahi Mahi Burgers

The Trader Joe’s freezer aisle has no shortage of burger options. From the standard beef burgers to veggie burgers to seafood burgers, there are so many burgers to try! Of course, we here at Freezer Meal Frenzy want to taste every last one of them.

We’re moving forward with this ambitious mission today, as we’re checking out the Trader Joe’s Mahi Mahi burgers. We’re pretty excited about these, especially after having tried the delicious shrimp burgers (and even the pretty alright salmon burgers).

Before we even get to cooking these, we have to get something off of our chest. The package claims to have four burgers, but ours only had three. They were sealed inside a plastic bag, so we don’t think our box was tampered with, but it is possible this was a manufacturing error. If you pick up some of these yourself, dear reader, please let us know if you ended up with three or four patties down in the comments section below.

Moving on, there are many different ways to cook a burger. We decided to pan fry our burger, but a conventional oven, a convection oven, or even a grill are other options. (If you want to see the full cooking instructions, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

Trader Joe's Mahi Mahi Burgers

The burger patties here actually taste closer to chicken than any sort of fish (it turns out, that’s a fairly common observation with mahi-mahi). There are subtle hints of fishiness to this, but mahi-mahi tends to be a very subtle fish flavor.

The texture of the patty reminds us of chicken as well, and there’s a lovely juiciness to the whole thing.

There are a whole bunch of different ways you could top something like this. We tried our burger with mayo, lettuce, and swiss cheese on a whole wheat sesame seed bun, and we found that to be a really good combo. Of all the Trader Joe’s burgers we’ve tried so far, we’d say these are the closest to our beloved turkey burgers, so dressing them up the same way as we do our turkey burgers seems to be the right thing to do.

Trader Joe's Mahi Mahi Burgers

Each burger contains 110 calories (45 from fat) and 320 mg of sodium. None of those numbers is particularly bad on its own, but keep in mind that you might end up adding quite a bit to these burgers, depending on how you top them. If you go wild with condiments, you could see these numbers soar.

The Trader Joe’s Mahi Mahi Burgers are pretty great, though we’d say they taste more like unbreaded chicken patties than true burgers. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s something you should probably know before picking some of these up for yourself.

Four burgers — and they taste like fish. Not chicken. Fish.

I cooked in air fryer and nestled it on a toasted Dave’s Killer multigrain English muffin with Trader Joe’s Creamy Garlic Spread (aka “toum”) and baby spinach.

They always come four to a pack, you got ripped off.

I like these pan fried and then on a toasted bun with tomato, onion, tartar sauce and some chopped pickle.

These mahi mahi burgers are GREAT. Better than I expected. And I don’t think they taste like chicken at all – very much mahi. I ate without bread, with a little mayonnaise combined with some hot sauce. Outstanding. And I did get 4 in the box.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
