directions

  • Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover; or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.
  • Make the salsa: combine all the ingredients in a bowl; stir to mix; set aside to let flavors blend.
  • Make the patties: In a bowl, combine the tuna, panko, egg, mustard, garlic, honey, sesame oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne; mix well.
  • Divide mixture into 6 portions; form the portions into patties to fit the buns.
  • When the grill is ready, brush grill rack with vegetable oil.
  • Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, just until opaque throughout, about 4 minutes on each side.
  • During the last few minutes of cooking, place the buns, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly.
  • Assemble the burgers: brush the cut sides of the buns with teriyaki sauce.
  • On each bun bottom, place a patty and an equal portion of the salsa; add bun tops and serve.

    This was very yummy! We had fresh caught Albacore tuna and it was great!

    What great burgers! I had leftover tuna steak from the night before, so it was perfect. SUPER flavorful! I will eliminate the salt from the burgers (they were a bit too salty for my taste). Make sure you leave them a little thick, as they will be more moist! I simply served them open faced, topped with a pineapple salsa. . .I think mango salsa would be wonderful too.
