AHI Tuna Burger



  • 1 lb sushi-grade ahi tuna
  • 2 tbsp low-sodium tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp wasabi paste
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 4 whole-wheat rolls

For Garnish:

  • Sprouts
  • Avocado
  • Lettuce

Serves: 4


  1. Chop the tuna into chunks and add to a food processor. Pulse a few times to break down tuna.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add tamari, olive oil, lime juice, and zest, cilantro, ginger, Dijon mustard, wasabi paste, salt, and pepper. Mix and add to tuna. Blend until well combined, about 1 minute until it has a consistency similar to ground beef.
  3. Form evenly into 4 patties.
  4. Preheat large sauté grill pan on medium heat for 1 minute. Sear for 2 minutes on each side for rare burgers or longer for more well done.
  5. Serve with fresh sprouts, avocado, and lettuce on a toasted whole wheat bun.
