Fish Taco Burger
I discovered Fish Tacos in Ft. Lauderdale. They were so good I wanted to have them all the time. I thought, wouldn't it be great if there were a burger that you could mix all those flavors into and cook right on the grill! I tried it with some left over ingredients I had at home, and WoW! This is so good. And so easy!
