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 🙂
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 6 min
Yields 6 medium patties (or 9 small patties)
for the Patty:
1 lb. minced/ground ahi tuna
3 scallions chopped
1 tbsp. soy sauce
½ cup Raskin’s Hickory Smoked panko crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
3Tbsp oil for searing
Combine ground/minced tuna with chopped scallions, eggs, soy sauce, Raskin’s Hickory smoked panko salt and pepper in a bowl.
Using lightly moistened hands, shape the tuna mixture into 6 patties.
Pan sear in a hot pan for 2/3 min per sides. You don’t want to overcook it.
Assemble in your bun with veggies and condiments of your choice (sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, roasted red peppers, dill pickles, ketchup, tartar sauce, spicy mayo etc…) and if you are feeling adventurous, throw an egg on it 🙂
