"Tuna Burger with Wasabi Mayo and Asian Slaw"

Tuna Burger with Wasabi Mayo and Asian Slaw

We served these tuna burgers atop brioche buns and adorned with a simple Asian-style slaw.  The fuyu, fennel and arugula salad is a nice side along with colorful taro chips.  This is NOT your everyday burger meal (but probably just as good!) 

Tuna Burgers on Brioche Buns (makes around 2 to 3 patties) 

  • 8 oz. fresh sushi grade tuna, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp green onoins, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp red sweet bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tsp cilantro, finely chopped
  • Dash or two of garlic powder and ginger powder
  • Black sesame seeds
  • Brioche or regular hamburger buns
  • Cooking oil 

Optional:  Tabasco or chili oil (for spice)  Heat oil in a pan and add burgers.  Pan fry each side about 2-3 minutes then place on paper towel.  Keep warm.   Toast buns.  Add wasabi mayo, burger and slaw.  Enjoy!
