Years ago, Jack-in-the-Box ran an ad with the lines, “But why a bun? A bun’s neither meat nor cheese.” They were joking. I wasn’t when I stole the idea and used Yanni Jalapeno Grilling Cheese as the bread for this sandwich. The company makes two types of grilling cheese and my cheese-only grilled cheese sandwich idea seemed like a great test flight for their products.

I’ve been jonesing a good teriyaki burger for a few weeks and looking for a chance to tweak the teriyaki pineapple marinade in Flavorize. This was a win-win. The easy route would have been to just mix up the sauce, marinate the ground chuck, and slap it all together. It would also be, well, normal.

If ever there was a simple to prepare, quick and easy fish recipe with significant heat, this is it.
An alternative to hamburgers that make a great light meal served with a side salad or as cocktail party hors d’oeuvre.
