Smokey Tuna burger

A burger is a ground protein patty with a choice of topping and condiment in a bun – Doesn’t necessarily have to be a beef patty, right?  For a heart healthy variation, we substituted beef with fish and used minced ahi tuna in the following recipe. Ahi tuna has a mild taste and meaty/firm texture that make it very easy to work with.

Raskin’s sell flash frozen minced Ahi tuna in their frozen section that worked amazing with our recipe – or you can request your fishmonger to ground fresh tuna.

For an authentic barbeque flavor, we added Raskin’s  Hickory smoked Panko crumbs in the mix. The results were smoking 🙂
