This evening I made Tuna Burgers. You may remember I did make them last year, adapting a Simon Rimmer recipe for Salmon burgers. Anyway when I went to retrieve the recipe it was not on my blog so here goes - a slightly further adapted recipe:
250g - 300g Tuna Steaks
2 slices brown bread, crusts off (& magimixed into bread crumbs)
1/2 egg white
1 shallot or small chunk of red onion
Salt & Pepper
1. Put bread into magimix & made breadcrumbs
2. Add red onion, and dill & blitz
4. Add tuna (cut into chunks) & egg white - pulse magimix so small pieces of tuna remain
Turn the mixture out & shape into 2 'burgers' - cover them up and pop them in the fridge for 1/2 hour
Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan and lightly fry for around 3 or 4 minutes (depending on the thickness) on either side until cooked through in the middle
We served this with some organic mayonnaise flavoured with a little garlic, a squeeze of lemon juice & touch more dill.
We also had some homemade chips courtesy of 'Cook with Gordon' -
2 Desiree potatoes scrubbed (skin left on) cut into eighths & parboiled for 3 minutes. Season, add a touch of olive oil & chilli flakes & pop on a hot baking tray in the oven set to 200°c for around 40 minutes until crisp.
