Any meat can be pounded into a patty! Crab is a quality source of lean protein, and it offers a nice change of pace from the usual chicken or beef. This recipe pairs crab with avocado for a creamy burger bursting in flavor and stuffed with healthy fat.


  • 3 cup crab meat
  • 4 green onion, chopped
  • ½ tsp garlic, pureed
  • ½ tsp ginger, pureed
  • 2 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup raw oats
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 whole-wheat hamburger buns
  • 3 tbsp fat-free mayonnaise
