Tuna burgers 2 ways with wasabi slaw


Many people abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent, so I wanted to share a burger recipe that uses fish instead of beef. This ahi tuna mushroom burger uses is full of flavor, not overly fishy tasting, and has a very similar texture to beef burgers. 

Fresh vs. Frozen vs. Canned
You can use either one of these options for this recipe, although the canned tuna recipe is slightly different.

I think there's a common misconception that fresh fish is better than frozen fish, but that is not true. In fact, unless you live 50 miles from the ocean, frozen tuna is actually better because it is flash frozen onboard the fishing boat. You just have to make sure you safely thaw the fish.

Canned tuna is a great cost-effective option. It has the same nutritional value as fresh or frozen tuna. You just have to make sure there's been no salt added. Also, look for "pole-and-line-caught" on the label, which is a more sustainable and enviormentally-friendly practice.

I realize some people don't like the taste of canned tuna, but I honestly can't tell much of a difference in taste in this burger recipe. My husband can vouch for that, too. You'll notice there's a slight difference between the ahi tuna burger recipe and the canned tuna burger recipe. That's because the canned tuna doesn't pack together as well as the ahi tuna, so it needs binders in the form of pank bread crumbs and eggs.

Let's talk about mushrooms
Did you know mushrooms are 50% water? In order to get a more concentrated umami flavor, you have to evaporate the water out. The easiest way to do that is by roasting the mushrooms, which is the first step of this recipe. Also, if you don't first roast the mushrooms, the water content may cause your burgers to fall apart.

Wasabi slaw
This slaw is packed with flavor, thanks in part to a little bit of wasabi. I found wasabi paste at my local grocery store. I think it really is the key to the slaw recipe. But if you don't like wasabi or if you can't find it, just omit it. Although I must admit I'll be a little sad.

  2. Hello everyone I’m Chloe from New Jersey. I’m so grateful to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for such a wonderful work. I had 3 credit cards to which I pay my bills closely at most cases on due dates through pre-authorize debits. I also have a good mix of credit which is student loan but still have been deprived of a car loan. Although majority of the negative items will be removed in few months (about a year) time. I have a credit score of 528 with so many derogatory items that are from 2 years ago. I couldn’t condole it anymore as most of my colleagues at work have their personal cars. I felt in despair most times considering my predicament. After a quick research of a hacker called PINNACLE. (PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM / +1 (323) 406 1225) with numerous recommendation and that which my girlfriend Luna explained about with positive reviews and referrals. I contacted him explaining my problems. Duly he came up with resounding proposal and guaranteed my derogatory item wiped, reports and scores enhanced within 6 days. With so much anxiety I waited and my greatest surprise after 8 days my report with positive trade line posted on it including a revolving credit card, 801 credit score and all negative were deleted. I got approved for a loan, got my car and most especially got my together. I strongly recommend him for credit fix

  5. My husband and I are self-employed architects; we made most of our income from buying, renovating and selling houses in Florida. In 2005 we had our first child, followed immediately by Hurricane Wilma and the beginning of the downturn in the real estate market (at least in Miami). Lost income from clients who could no longer pay, plummeting real-estate values and a non-existent job market for architects left us with virtually no income for four years. We used our credit cards and savings, my 401k, sold our home at a huge loss, all with the idea that the market had to pick up soon and we would then be able to pay off our debts without filing for bankruptcy. We were terrified of bankruptcy because we depended on being able to get a mortgage to finance home purchases and renovations, our main source of income. In retrospect not filing was a mistake, the market never recovered in time for us and we accumulated a massive amount of credit card debt which we could not pay, somewhere around $50-60,000. Much of this has been charged off or we negotiated settlements; however, we have two judgements, Amex for $1136 and Chase for $8566, which I’m going to try and settle, and a Citibank account that was bought by Asset Acceptance, original balance of $16,166 now pumped up to $26,340. I read about PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST on Quora and I didn’t hesitate to contact him, to my greatest surprise, all the debts were cleared completely including the charge offs and credit card debts. More so our credit score was increased to 811 and 804 respectively. All thanks to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST the saviour I met a few months ago. You can reach him via PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM or Text him on +1 (323) 406 1225. Cheers.

  6. I started the year with a bad credit score, lingering debts and derogatory record which affected my ability to finance a new home, including a new car. I tried a few credit restoration firms but all were abortive until I saw a post about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. I reached out to them and surprisingly they helped cleaned-up my derogatory and raised my FICO score to 782 across all three bureaus, within a short period of time I got qualified for a new home, and also purchased my dream car. Anyone with related issues can reach out to them for assistance via [Hackvanish @ Gmail. Com] or Phone: (2 0 9 ) 3 3 0 - 3 0 4 7.

  7. I wish every business operated with transparency, integrity and trust like Spyhost Cyber Service as to me, that is the greatest dignity to humanity. I got to work with them when I lost $388k of my savings to a bogus broker. It was really hectic trying to retrieve my account and I was very skeptical about trusting anyone again. Though reluctant but i gave Spyhost Cyber Service a chance after reading recommendations online and they really showed their dignity through all forms of transparency and i will also want to thank them for their great hacking prowess. They made use of modern blockchain forensic tools to map the activity of scammers who ripped me
    through my email and am so grateful for trusting them for they did an astounding job and they are more than capable of solving many common problems concerning
    different coins and recovering passwords. Don't waste your time with unprofessional hackers and reach SpyHost Cyber Service via:
