    4. 4
      Remove any sinew from the tuna and chop into fine dice. Add the scallions, ginger, mustard, soy sauce and pepper and blend thoroughly. Do not over mix. Form into 4 equal portions and make patties. Chill for 1 hour.

      While the tuna patties are chilling, mix the wasabi powder with just enough water to make a paste. Allow to sit for 20 minutes. Add it to the mayonnaise and lime juice and chill.

      Place a piece of lettuce on the bottom of each bun and top with a few slices of cucumbers. Top with tuna burger. Then top with the bun top which has been spread liberally with Wasabi Mayonnaise. Serve with the remaining Thai Style Cucumbers on the side.

      We had a small disagreement with how to execute the instructions that led us to making the burgers 3 different ways. one was minced and then blended in a food processor, two was just minced, and 3 was the steak seared. <br/><br/>1) had the most flavor but was also the driest<br/>2) was really good and we decided our favorite but we'd marinate longer next time<br/>3) had the least flavor but was okay for just being a seared tuna steak

      When I told my husband we were having tuna burgers for dinner, he assumed it would be a piece of seared tuna on a bun. I was suprised how they held together and the taste was excellent and I'm excited I tried these right at the beginning of spring so that I can enjoy these on the grill soon!
