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.

Baked Salmon Meatballs with Spicy Avocado Crema

Baked Salmon Meatballs with Spicy Avocado Crema

Easy-to-make baked salmon meatballs made with fresh salmon and served with a spicy avocado crema! Ready in just 30 minutes. Perfect for dinner or as an appetizer!

After making Baked Chicken Teriyaki Meatballs, I knew I had to make meatballs again…except I wanted to make them with fresh salmon.

And that’s just what I did!

These Baked Salmon Meatballs are the perfect weeknight meal. They are not complicated at all to make and they are DELICIOUS!

All you need to do is cut the fresh salmon into cubes and throw it in a food processor. Mix it with bread crumbs, an egg, spices, green onions then create them into balls and BAKE! I use a cookie scoop to form the balls (I use this one) and it works great!

Don’t they look amazing?!

I was so excited when they came out of the oven. Love when I can add a new recipe to my weekly rotation!

And that spicy avocado crema? WHAAA. Perfect combo.

Try these Baked Salmon Meatballs this week and let me know what you think!

YUM...Baked Salmon Meatballs with Spicy Avocado Crema! Adding this to my to-do list! #asassyspoonClick To Tweet
