Fresh herbs, lemon mayonnaise and wasabi give a spicy twist to this healthy slider.
1 fresh Ahi Tuna filet
Food Guru Steak Spice
Ginger Wasabi Mayonaise
1 cup mayonaise
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons wasabi powder
2 tablespoons ginger, grated
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
3/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons soy sauce
pinch of sugar
(I cut the recipe from the video in half for you)
Prepare the Tuna:
Rub the tuna filet with soy sauce and season liberally with Steak Spice or salt and pepper.
Run the tuna through a meat grinder or mince with a knife.
You may also grill the tuna as steaks.
Ginger Wasabi Mayonaise:
Place mayonnaise in a bowl, add the remaining ingredients, mix well.
Allow the flavors to marry at least 30 minutes before serving.
Form the ground tuna in to small burgers , (or leave the filet whole if you wish)
grill on a lightly greased griddle for about one minute on each side.
These burgers should be served rare, do not overcook.
place the burger in a cocktail bun bottom, top with the ginger wasabi mayonaise, crisp lettuce, sliced tomato, and fresh cilantro.
The top of the bun, I like to place swords or frill picks in the sliders to keep them together.
I reccomend Golden Mountain Soy Sauce
It's actually called a "seasoning sauce" and it's available in Oriental Grocery stores...
*You may also use other toppings for these burgers, such as
Julienne daikon radish, red bell pepper, carrot, shaved cabbage or try my Big Island Slaw
