Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Cut the Sushi-Grade Tuna Fillets (1 lb) into a 1/4-inch dice and add to a large bowl.
Step 2
Add the Scallion (1) , Fresh Cilantro (2 Tbsp) , Fresh Ginger (1 tsp) , Red Bird's Eye Chili Pepper (1) , Avocado (1/2) , Kosher Salt (3/4 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) to the tuna. Gently work with your hands to incorporate all of the ingredients.
Step 3
Divide the contents of the bowl into 4 equal portions and shape into 1-inch thick patties. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes and up to 2 hours.
Step 4
Make the wasabi mayo. In a small bowl, add the Wasabi Paste (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Mayonnaise (1/2 cup) , Lime (1) , and Fresh Ginger (1 tsp) . Stir well to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Step 5
Just before you’re ready to cook the tuna burgers, make the dressing. In a medium-sized bowl, combine Limes (2) , Fish Sauce (1 Tbsp) , Orange Juice (1 Tbsp) , Rice Vinegar (1/2 Tbsp) , and Garlic (1 clove) . Stir well.
Step 6
Toss in the Romaine Lettuce (1 1/4 cups) to coat. Set aside until ready to use.
Step 7
Heat the Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the tuna burgers, 2-3 minutes per side – don’t overcook the burgers or they will be dry. Transfer to a clean plate to rest.
Step 8
With the remaining oil in the pan, toast the Sesame Hamburger Buns (4) for 1 minute. Add more oil if needed.
Step 9
To assemble, place the burgers on the bun bottoms. Top each with wasabi mayo and dressed lettuce. Cover each burger with the bun tops and serve immediately.
