Ahi Tuna Burgers with Wasabi-Lime Mayonnaise



  1. First, make mayo. Whisk together mayo, wasabi, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl.
  2. Chop the tuna, place in food processor with cilantro, scallions, garlic, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Top with sesame oil.  Pulse a few times until roughly ground.  Don’t puree!!
  3. Form the mixture into two large burgers or 4-5 smaller ones.  *If making large burgers, make sure your buns are large enough!  These burgers don’t shrink up like beef does, since the fat content is so low.
  4. Cook on medium heat, either in grill pan on the grill or frying pan on stove coated with a little olive oil, 2-3 minutes each side (or to desired level of doneness).
  5. Toast buns, top with lettuce, tomato, onion and avocado.  Use mayo sparingly, or to taste.
