Wasabi Tuna Sliders
Makes 10-15 sliders
1 1/2 cups minced scallions
3 teaspoons minced garlic
2 1/4 chopped fresh cilantro
6 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
3 pounds tuna steak, cut into chunks
6 tablespoons wasabi paste
3 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
6 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons olive oil
10 to 15 small buns or rolls, preferable whole wheat
1. Combine the scallions, garlic, cilantro, and soy sauce in a bowl and mix until incorporated. Mix in the tuna until combined. Add the wasabi paste, ginger, mustard, salt, and pepper.
2. Using an ice-cream scoop, make burgers out of the mixture. Place them on a plate and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
3. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tuna sliders and sauté for 5 minutes on each side. Serve on whole wheat rolls. Pepperidge Farm makes whole wheat slider buns that work well for this recipe.
