I got this recipe from my coworker - loved it and then made it for my boyfriend. Now he loves it and I make it at least twice a month. You can eat this plain or as a burger. I recommend eating them with hamburger buns, mayo, lettuce and onions.

This was a hit for my family. I modified my second recipe a bit based on what others here have suggested and enjoyed it even more. I added: fresh garlic (2 cloves, saute with carrots and onions then add to burger mixture) Worcestershire sauce (2 Tbsp) Lime Juice (1 Tbsp) Then I made a sauce to serve on the side that really compliments the burger (adjust to taste): Mayonnaise (4 heaping Tbsp) Worcestershire sauce (1 1/2 Tbsp) Lime Juice (1 Tbsp) fresh pepper & salt Read More

For me this was a middle of the road recipe -- tasty enough to repeat but only with necessary adjustments. Pros: includes veggies (with room for lots more) pretty healthy unique way to cook ahi. Cons: overall taste is bland (if you use recipe as-is). I think a necessary ingredient to add here is dijon mustard to enhance the flavor. A little Worcestershire sauce will help as well. Overall -- C. Give it a try and determine the changes you'll want to make for yourself. Read More

I loved this recipe. I made sure to buy some nice pieces of tuna and did not sub packaged albacore (although you mince it anyway not all parts of a tuna-or kinds of tuna- taste the same just like any other animal). I think I may disagree with the reviews that call this bland. It is a burger after all and should be served with accompaniments like any other burger. Taking that into consideration it is very flavorful. I minced everything by hand and it held together perfectly. Not sure that it wouldn't seem mushy to me if done in a processor. Every time I make patties I either refrigerate or freeze them for a little while to help the flavors meld and help them stick together. I love another reviewers suggestion of mixing a mayo/chinese chili sauce spread:) Definately going to try that! One more thing....these are four very large servings you could probably serve 6 easily.

I love Ahi Burgers! When I make them I try not to put too much mayonnaise, eggs, and/or bread crumbs in the mixture if I can help it. Instead I add chinese fishcake as a binder, grated carrot, minced mustard green cabbage, chopped green onions, garlic clove, fresh grated ginger, a little sesame oil, soy sauce, salt and black pepper. I cook the mustard cabbage down and cool it before adding it to the Ahi mixture. I put some of the Ahi into a food processor and grind the Ahi up.(Sometimes, I do add a 1/2 block of extra firm tofu to the Ahi mixture). I mix everything together. When I make them into patties I put them into the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes. I heat a large skillet with a little sesame oil and heat up the pan to medium high heat. I put the Ahi patties into a skillet, fry them about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. I serve them with rice and soup. Very tasty! Read More

Good recipe. The store didn't have fresh chives so I used about 3/4 cup green onions bulbs and stems and no other onion.I also added 1/2 red bell pepper minced and used seasoned crumbs and garlic powder. Came out very good. A keeper Read More

This was good and easy. I would recommend not putting all ingredients in the food processor at once as some have done. Doing them separately allows for different textures. This made 8 patties for us and they cooked in half the time suggested in the recipe. My daughter liked the burgers plain my husband liked honey mustard on his and I liked tarter sauce. So serve with your favorite condiment as the recipe suggests. This is healthy and good...we will be making this one again. Read More
