Thai Tuna Burger
2 sprays cooking spray
1 pound uncooked tuna, sushi grade
2 tablespoons cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ginger root, grated or finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon grass, finely chopped
2 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon sriracha chili sauce, or other hot sauce (to taste)
4 light hamburger roll(s) or bun(s), toasted
1. Coat a large griddle, outdoor grill rack or stovetop grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.
2. Cut tuna into bite-size chunks; pulse in a food processor 4 to 5 times. In a large bowl, combine tuna, cilantro, ginger, lemon grass, garlic and fish sauce; evenly divide mixture into four balls and then gently press each one into a 3 1/2-inch patty. Cook burgers 3 minutes per side for medium (or longer until desired degree of doneness).
3. Combine mayonnaise and Sriracha in a small bowl.
4. Serve each burger on a toasted bun with about 3/4 teaspoon mayonnaise mixture.
If you can’t find lemon grass, use 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest in its place.
