A simple mixture of minced tuna, onions, chives, and panko crumbs seasoned with garlic salt and pepper fried in olive oil is a great alternative to the popular beef burger. Serve on buns with your favorite condiments.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 pound fresh tuna steaks, minced
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup panko crumbs or breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- garlic salt to taste
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a large bowl, mix together tuna, carrot, onion, chives, eggs, panko crumbs, and mayonnaise. Season with garlic salt and black pepper. Form into patties.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Arrange patties in the pan (only as many as will fit easily in the pan). Cook, uncovered, 10 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
