3/4 lb fresh ahi or yellowfin tuna
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1 tsp soy sauce
1 clove mashed garlic
salt and pepper
2 Tbs olive oil
Whole wheat buns
tomato, lettuce, red onion
1. Chop the tuna with a sharp knife. Do not use a food processor; you want the tuna chunky so it will stick together.
2. In a small bowl combine the tuna, mustard, soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix with your hands. Form into two patties.
3. Heat the oil over medium high heat. Place the patties in the pan and cook on each side for two minutes. Blot with a paper towel to remove excess oil. Add to a whole wheat bun and add red onion, lettuce, tomato and mayo. You can make an Asian aioli by whisking together mayo (vegan or regular) with a little soy sauce.
Although I'm pretty sure the boys would enjoy this dish, they had cheeseburgers. Our kids do eat red meat, but like everything else, in moderation :) They actually love veggies and eat fish a couple times a week.
