Tuna Sushi Burgers

Tuna Sushi Burgers

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.
