  • 1 1/4 cups minced scallions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

How to Make It

  1. In a large bowl, mix cilantro, scallions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and mustard. Add tuna and stir to coat.

  2. Make 16 patties out of tuna mixture. Place patties on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  3. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 5 or 6 patties and cook until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining patties.
