Perfect Tuna Burgers

1 Comment 24 April 2011

Great Recipe!!!

My niece Shirley is a professional, sought-after baker but she continually surprises us with unexpected culinary delights.

The kids and adults in the family gave these Tuna burgers a thumbs up!

Try this hearty  yet light tuna burger that she easily adapted from Cooking Light magazine.

Shirley recommends Pomegrante for fresh baked wholesome buns.

Makes 6 servings

To assemble  the sandwiches you’ll need:

Tuna Burgers

Asian Coleslaw

Wasabi Mayonnaise

Egg Buns or Egg Challah Rolls

For the Burgers:

2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil

Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 pound sushi-grade tuna, very finely chopped

2 scallions, white and light green parts only, trimmed and minced

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1 teaspoon lemon zest

Canola oil, for cooking

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

Place tuna, scallions, soy, olive oil, sesame oil, and lemon zest in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Mix well, using your hands, to combine. Divide tuna mixture into six equal portions and form each portion into a 1/2-inch thick patty.

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add enough canola oil to coat bottom of skillet. Add patties, and cook until medium-rare, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

For the Asian Coleslaw

1 tablespoon unseasoned rice-wine vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tsp honey

1 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)

1 bag coleslaw (shredded cabbage)

Place vinegar in small bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil to form an emulsion; add the honey and sesame; season with salt and pepper; set aside.

Just before serving, toss some coleslaw with dressing to taste.

For the Wasabi Mayonnaise:

1 large egg, room temperature

2 teaspoons unseasoned rice-wine vinegar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated

1 tablespoon wasabi paste

1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

3/4 cup canola oil

Coarse salt

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

In the bowl of a small food processor, combine egg, vinegar, lemon juice, lime juice, ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce; pulse to combine. With food processor running, slowly drizzle in canola oil until mixture is emulsified. Season with salt.

Note: Raw eggs should not be used in food prepared for pregnant women, babies, young children, the elderly, or anyone whose health is compromised

To Assemble the Burgers:

Spread a tablespoon of mayonnaise on both sides of halved bun. Place one patty, topped with about ¼ cup of coleslaw.
