This spicy Caribbean Cole Slaw balances out the fiery heat of habanero with sweet mangos and pineapple, as well as a creamy jerk seasoned dressing. It is the perfect topping for Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers!
My family is planning a trip to Alaska next month, one of only two states I still haven’t visited. We will be staying at a cabin in the wilderness about two hours from Anchorage, and I plan to do a lot of hiking. It’s been recommended I keep a bell on me to ward off moose, to avoid accidentally sneaking up on one. When asked how I avoid grizzly bears, I’m told not to worry; if I listen closely I should be able to hear a bell jingling inside them. Maybe I should just visit the Trident Seafoods® fishermen instead.
I have been living a much healthier lifestyle in the past few months, which is why I am particularly excited to hit the hiking trails. Though I’ve been going on daily walks around my neighborhood, there is just something magical about reconnecting with the untouched wilderness. As I continue my efforts to get in shape for the adventure, I’m happy to report I’ve now shed an excess of 17 pounds over the past few months. This is despite devouring my recent recipes such as my Nashville Hot Chicken, S’Mores Popcorn, and more Deep Fried Cheese Curds than I should admit.
I am a firm believer that you don’t have to give up enjoying your favorite foods in order to live healthy; you just need to incorporate more healthy options to balance them out. This is why, even though I am enjoying my favorite decadent meals, I make sure my other meals feature fresher alternatives such as my favorite Kale and Broccoli Salad, or Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers.
I particularly love Trident Seafoods® Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers because they are quick and easy to make. I spend a lot of time cooking recipes for this website, so I don’t always want a fuss for every meal. However, I can still quickly jazz these burgers up with my Caribbean Coleslaw. Plus, making a larger batch of slaw ahead of time is easy to do, so it is on hand when I need it.
Swapping out your traditional burger for these Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers is an easy and flavorful way to make healthier choices. They have 178% less fat, and 94% less calories than a traditional beef patty, so it is easy to see how that can add up. Plus, they are packed with healthy Omega-3s, which can significantly improve heart health, brain function, mental health, vision, and memory.

- 4 Whole Wheat Buns
- 4 Trident Alaskan Pollock Burgers
- 1 cup Caribbean Coleslaw, recipe below
- 4 cups shredded cabbage, firmly packed
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 1 mango, peeled and cubed
- 3/4 cup canned pineapple tidbits, drained
- 1/2 red pepper, chopped
- 2/3 cup mayo
- 2 tablespoons heinz cider vinegar
- 2-4 tablespoons cilantro leaves, chopped
- 1 small habanero pepper, minced (Jalapeno can be substituted)
- 1 tablespoon Jamaican jerk seasoning
- Salt to taste
Prepare coleslaw by adding all ingredients into a large bowl and mix to combine.
Taste for salt and adjust as needed.
Lightly toast buns, and cook pollock burgers according to package instructions.
Place burger on bottom bun and top with 2-4 tbsp of slaw, add top bun and serve.
Some Jamaican Jerk seasoning will contain salt, some will not. Add salt to the coleslaw as needed.
I considered including a jerk seasoning recipe for this post, but for only 1 tbsp it wouldn't be time or cost effective to make due to the large number of seasonings that would need to be incorporated.
If you don't wish to shred cabbage and carrots you can purchase these pre-shredded in a coleslaw mix.
