Asian Tuna Burgers with Spicy Tartar Sauce


Asian Tuna Burgers with Spicy Tartar Sauce is a wonderful way to use pantry items like cans of tuna to be the star of your meal. 

I am always trying to feed my family of four on a budget.  Since I cook almost all our meals at home, it's easy if I take the time to keep a well stocked pantry that keeps me from running to the store all the time. 

I love to use canned good quality tuna to help keep things budget friendly.   Tuna is always a quick, easy and nutritious way to feed my family for lunch or dinner.  I love that tuna is naturally a lean protein, with healthy fat, and full of important vitamins and minerals.  
I enjoy creating dishes with canned tuna and I have made tuna pasta dishes, tuna melts, tuna salads, and my kid's favorite Asian Tuna Burgers with my Spicy Tartar Sauce.  These burgers come together in minutes and they have such a punch of flavor. 

If you are trying to keep things more figure friendly, then forgo the bun and top a green salad with this tuna burger for a great entree salad. 
So, the next time you are puzzled about what to make for dinner, think tuna.

Asian Tuna Burgers with Spicy Tartar Sauce
Recipe by Ramona from Kitchen Simmer
2 cans good quality tuna in Water
1/4 cup finely sliced scallions/green onion
1 large egg
red chili flakes to taste (optional)
salt and black pepper to taste (see note)
1 Tbs of soy sauce
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1-2 cloves garlic grated
1/2 Tbs grated fresh ginger
sesame seeds (as needed)

Note:  salt is optional due to the use of soy sauce

Spicy Tartar Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise (light is fine, I don't recommend fat free)
1 Tbs pickle relish
1 Tbs sriracha sauce
salt and pepper to taste (optional)


Step 1: Drain canned tuna well. Mix with minced scallions, egg, black pepper, soy sauce, bread crumbs, ginger, garlic and Dijon mustard.  Form 4 burger patties.

Step 2:  Heat a nonstick frying pan with 1 tsp of canola oil.  Fry the burgers on medium heat for 4-5 minutes on side one. Before flipping the tuna burger, apply a little canola oil on each burger and sprinkle sesame seeds so they stick to the patty.  Then flip and cook the other side of the tuna burger for 3-4 minutes.  Toast buns and serve with tartar sauce and garnishes.  Enjoy.
