Ahi Tuna Burgers with Sriracha Aioli

This recipe swaps out hamburger for fresh ahi tuna, and features a creamy sriracha aioli. It puts a whole new spin on the classic American cheeseburger, but is every bit just as worthy of celebration.

  • Ahi Tuna Burgers with Sriracha Aioli
  • Ingredients
    • 1 ½ lbs. fresh ahi tuna
    • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
    • 3 Tbsp. less sodium soy sauce
    • Zest and juice of 1 lime
    • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    • 2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, chopped
    • Dash of salt
    • Dash of black pepper
    • ¼ cup canola oil mayonnaise
    • 3 Tbsp. sriracha
    • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
    • Butter lettuce, for garnish
    • Avocado slices, for garnish

    Directions
    1. Chop tuna into chunks. Place in a food processor and pulse a few times to break up the pieces. Add in 2 Tbsp. olive oil, soy sauce, lime zest and juice, cilantro, ginger and a generous dash of salt and pepper. Process until well blended. Form tuna blend into 4 patties. 1. Heat remaining olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the burgers and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. 1. While burgers cook, whisk together mayonnaise and sriracha until incorporated. Place tuna burgers on toasted burger buns with sriracha aioli, butter lettuce and avocado slices.
