Ingredients

  • 200g fresh tuna steaks
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • handful coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • burger buns, lettuce leaves, sliced tomato and avocado, to serve

Tip

Cooking tuna
Like beef, tuna can be cooked to your liking. To keep the burgers succulent, cook them for 1 min on each side over a moderate heat, leaving them pink in the middle.

Method

  1. Chop the tuna into small chunks, then carry on chopping until the tuna is roughly minced. Tip the tuna into a bowl and mix with the garlic, ginger, soy sauce and coriander. Shape into two burgers, place on a plate, then freeze for 10 mins to firm up.

  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then cook the burgers for 1-2 mins on each side or until done to your liking. Serve the burgers in toasted buns with lettuce, tomato and avocado.
