Tuna Patties/Burgers Japanese Style

Tuna Patties/Burgers Japanese Style created by The Flying Chef

I have already posted a salmon patty recipe, so I thought I would move on to tuna. I buy Ahi tuna, which is most commonly used in raw Japanese fish dishes such as sashimi. Ahi refers to two species, bigeye tuna and yellowfin tuna. With yellowfin being most common, it has nice red pigmentation to skin, it is more perishable than bigeye and looses its red pigmentation quicker. So when buying look for a good bright red colour for freshness.

ingredients

directions

  • Cut tuna into chunks place tuna, mayo, mustard, vinegar and lemon juice into a food processor or blender and pulse until ingredients are just combined. Add onion, soy sauce, ginger and garlic and pulse again to combine.
  • Add coriander and panko (note: save enough flakes to coat the outside of patties for frying.) Mix these ingredients until combined.
  • Shape into patties it will make 8 medium patties (2 per person) or 6 Large burgers if you want to serve them this way in buns. Place patties on tray and put in fridge to chill for 15-20 Min's.
  • Heat oil in pan (you may need 2) Or you can grill on BBQ. Add patties to pan and cook on each side about 4-5 Min's. The patties should have a nice golden brown outside and be medium rare inside. If you over cook tuna it becomes very dry.
  • For the wasabi mayonnaise.
  • Mix a little water with the wasabi powder to form a paste add mustard and mayo and mix well place in refrigerator for about 30 Min's to allow flavours to infuse.
  • To serve place atop salad greens and serve the wasabi mayonnaise on the side.

    This is really good! I made it with boneless skinless chicken breasts, that I ground. The only change was to add soy sauce and garlicchili paste to the mayonaise
