Tuna is a “new to me” fish that is really delicious in burger form.
Tuna Burger on Hemp Bread with Avocado, Baby Spinach, and Roasted Tomato
Growing up, I absolutely HATED tuna, but I’m talking about the canned stuff. Occasionally, my mom would make tuna salad sandwiches and the smell was foul enough to make me want to hide. No offense mom Love ya!
Please tell me I’m not the only one that hates canned tuna. To this day, I still won’t eat it.
Now fresh tuna, that’s a different story…
I’ve had fresh, Yellowfin Tuna a few times and I’ve always been impressed. It’s a little bit pricey, but you only live. Sometimes you just have to splurge on the good stuff!
I mean, is it possible for my grocery post to get any higher?
And who doesn’t love a good burger?
These tuna burgers are high in protein, omega 3’s, Vitamin D, and of course, flavor.
Yellowfin Tuna Burgers
- In a food processor, grind the tuna.
- Transfer the tuna to a bowl and add garlic, ginger, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
- Mix gently, and shape into four 1-inch-thick patties. To get a perfect shape, you can use a glass as a cut out.
- Cover, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
- Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties to medium-rare, about 2 minutes per side.
- Serve on bread with desired condiments. I used avocado, spinach, and tomato.
Serve with plenty of avocado. It’s essential.
You’ve probably heard a lot about the dangers of mercury in the news, and while it can be scary, don’t let it keep you away from eating fish.
According to the FDA, you can safely enjoy up to 6 ounces of tuna a week without any undesirable consequences.
So fire up the grill and start cooking these Yellowfin Tuna Burgers!
