Tuna Sushi Burgers

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 patty)
Some of the tuna is pureed to help bind the burgers; the rest is finely chopped to create texture. Wet your hands before shaping the patties to keep the mixture from sticking. These are great without a bun, perhaps served on a bed of sticky rice with a dollop of Ginger-Honey Mustard, but they are also tasty on a sesame seed roll.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds tuna steaks, finely chopped and divided
  • 1/3 cup minced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Prepare grill.

  2. Place 3/4 cup tuna in a food processor; process until smooth. Combine pureed tuna, remaining chopped tuna, onions, and next 4 ingredients (through sugar). Divide mixture into 6 equal portions using wet hands, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

  3. Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes. Turn patties over; grill 1 minute or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from grill; let stand 5 minutes.
