Miso-Ginger Tuna burgers

  1. I like to throw my tuna in the freezer for a few hours before I start the mincing process. It makes it so much easier to slice small litle cubes.
  2. Take all the ingredients and place them in a large bowl and mix well. You can shape the tuna burgers with your hands but I prefer a 3 inch across biscuit cutter. It makes for perfect potion control and a lovely presentation. I take each one and place on a cookie sheet covered in either a sil-pat or parchment paper.
  3. I leave 2 burgers in another container in the refrigerator until dinner. The rest I pop in a freezer while still on the cookie sheet. They will freeze in about an hour or two. From there I just vacuum pack 2 at a time and take them out as needed.
  4. For this recipe I cooked them 2 ways. In a roasting pan at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. I flip them once at the 5 minute mark for even cooking.
  5. The next night I took 2 frozen tuna burgers and sauted them in a fry pan with 1 tablespoon of peanut oil over medium high heat for 8 minutes on each side. Both were delicious.

Miso-Ginger Tuna burgers

This recipe came about because I was trying to get my husband to eat more fish. He only likes tuna. As most fish shoppers who are land-locked know, wild caught tuna is one of the most expensive in the fish case. This recipe allows you to take a large portion of fish and make 12 servings instead of 2 or in most cases, at least four servings.

I serve it with avocado as the topping on a whole grain bagel bun. It pairs extremely well with sweet potato fries and a Prairie Artisian Ale, Apple Brandy Barrel aged Noir an Inperial stout aged in Apple brandy barrels. Friday night fish is now fun!
