Ingredients

uncooked tuna

1 pound(s), cut into chunks

cilantro

2 Tbsp, fresh, finely chopped

ginger root

1 Tbsp, grated or finely chopped

lemon grass

1 Tbsp, finely chopped

garlic clove(s)

2 medium clove(s), finely chopped

2 tsp

reduced calorie mayonnaise

1 Tbsp

sriracha chili sauce

¼ tsp, or other hot sauce (to taste)

light hamburger roll(s) or bun(s)

4 item(s), toasted

Instructions

  1. Place tuna in food processor and pulse just until finely chopped, 4 to 5 times. Combine tuna, cilantro, ginger, lemongrass, garlic, and fish sauce in large bowl; divide mixture into 4 equal balls and gently press each ball into patty about 3½ inches in diameter.
  2. Combine mayonnaise and Sriracha in small bowl.
  3. Coat ridged grill pan with nonstick spray and place over medium-high heat. Cook burgers just until pink in center, about 3 minutes per side. Spread buns with mayonnaise and place 1 burger inside each bun.
  4. Serving size: 1 burger

Notes

Lemongrass stalks are very fibrous, so be sure to only use the inner core of the stalk and mince it. You can also use 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest in its place.
