nth burger post


I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve blogged about burgers this month. It’s Memorial Day, and even though I don’t have a backyard these days, I wasn’t going to let that stand in my way. I got a great recipe from Sally Sampson’s Recipe of the Week: Burgers for a Dijon Tuna Burger. You start with yellowtail tuna, which I had to search all over town to find for some strange reason, and you chop it up yourself. (Don’t even think about using canned tuna.) You mix the tuna with Dijon mustard, fresh ginger, garlic, and basil, and that’s about it. One of the best parts of this recipe is serving it with lime wedges on the side, so don’t forget those. The recipe says it should make four burgers, but unless you like your burgers to be gigantic, you’ll probably get a 5th burger out of the recipe. It’s definitely worth a try, especially if you love burgers but don’t love all the fat in beef or pork ones. Oh yeah, that’s a photo of the burger alongside the photo from the cookbook, shot by Yunhee Kim. I don’t have anywhere near the skill of food stylist Jee Levin, so mine looks just okay, but what really counts is the taste, and this recipe will not disappoint.
