Fresh Tuna Burgers

This is such a great recipe! I am not a huge seafood fan, but these burgers were to die for! They have the perfect amount of spice and because of the lime in them they taste a little tropical.

Tuna Burgers

Makes 4 good sized burgers

1# Tuna Steaks

2 TBSP Bragg's Liquid Amino's

1 1/2 TBSP Olive Oil

1/2 tsp Wasabi Paste (this is where the spice comes from if you like it hot add more)

Zest of 1 Lime

1/4 C Cilantro

2 tsp. Ground Ginger

1 TBSP Dijon Mustard

1/4 tsp each salt and pepper

Here are the lovely tuna steaks I found.

Chop the tuna steaks until large chunks and put in a food processor with all the ingredients. After you zest your lime squeeze the juice from 1/2 into the mix too! Process until it is well mixed and it starts to form a ball in the bowl.

Take the burger mixture and divide it into 4 equal parts by scoring it with your hand. This way the burgers are equal in size and they will take the same amount of time to cook.

Lightly grease a skillet or griddle and cook the burgers. It will only take about 2 minutes on each side for a medium burger, which is how I like mine!

I served it with some Bragg's liquid amino's and wasabi on the side.
