Asian Marinated Grilled Tuna Burgers
(Yield: 4 Servings)
1 ½ pounds fresh tuna steak
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 inches fresh ginger root, minced or grated
3 tablespoons tamari dark soy sauce
2 green onions chopped, white and green parts
½ small red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon canola oil
Preheat grill to medium high heat.
Cube tuna into bit size pieces and place in a food processor. Pulse the processor to coarse grind the tuna; it should take on the consistency of ground beef or turkey. Transfer tuna to a bowl. Combine ground tuna with garlic, ginger, dark soy sauce, green onion, red bell pepper, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Form 4 large patties, 1 ½ inches thick. Drizzle patties on both sides with canola oil.
Cook tuna burgers 3 minutes on each side for rare and up to 6 minutes each side for well done.
