Anyone here a sushi fan?

Meeeee!

I love sushi SO much. Spicy tuna fan over here! I also love eel rolls and sashimi. Mmmm. To-do list: order sushi later.

As much as I love sushi however, I’ve never actually attempted to make it at home. I feel like I would make a total mess of myself. Rather leave that to the pros, tbh. Instead, I opted to make these Spicy Tuna Steak Burgers!

Sure, there’s no rice but there’s wasabi! And in case you’re wondering, they are just as flavorful as you’d expect.

I mean, look at these bad boys!

These Spicy Tuna Steak Burgers come together pretty easily.

All you have to do is grab some fresh tuna from your favorite grocery store. You can even use frozen tuna steaks. Just make sure you follow the thawing instructions before adding them to the food processor. Add the spices, sesame oil, soy sauce and pulse until you get a ground mixture.

Make patties, refrigerate them for a bit then pan fry with a little bit of olive oil for a few minutes.

That’s all folks!

These burgers are a great alternative to a regular meaty burger. If you’re looking to spice things up (literally, they are spicy!), make these!

You can serve these with sweet potato fries, roasted potatoes, or even a simple salad.

Ingredients
  • 3/4 pounds tuna steak , cut in cubes
  • 2 scallions , thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 hamburger buns
Toppings
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce , spinach, baby greens

Instructions
  1. Place cubed tuna, scallions, sesame oil, soy sauce, cumin, red pepper flakes, lime juice, salt and pepper into a food processor. Pulse until ground.
  2. Form ground tuna mixture into patties and place them in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes. It’s easier to handle when they have firmed up a bit.
  3. In a nonstick skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat. Cook patties for 3-4 minutes on each side, until the pink parts turn white. Serve on a bun with desired toppings. Enjoy!
