I hope you guys didn’t get your fill of BBQ over memorial day weekend because today we are having vegan barbecue!

When I think about turning fish into a burger, I want to see flavor. I eat a fair amount of fish. I love it, but it needs to be different sometimes. These burgers are different in so many ways. Asian style, barbecue sauce, quick pickles, ‘nough said.
