2 Tbl Cilantro

1 tsp Ginger

1 Clove of Garlic

2 Tbl Mayonnaise

Pinch of Salt

2 tsp Cool Rubbings

1lb Fresh Tuna, cut into cubes

1/2 small red onion


Add Cilantro, Jalapeno and onion to food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add ginger and garlic, pulse until blended well. Add tuna and Cool Rubbings to food processor, then pulse until well combined 3-4 times, to create a proper texture to make burgers.

Using a spatula, scrape ingredients into a bowl, and make sure you get all the good stuff under the blades. Leave nothing behind! 

Make desired size burgers (2-4 depending on the size) and place on a plate. Then, place them in your refrigerator for 20 minutes to chill and firm up.

Make the mayo while the burgers chill. Preparation below.

Add enough oil to coat the bottom of your chosen skillet. Once oil is hot, sear tuna until brown then flip. About 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and serve on your choice of bulky roll with lettuce, tomato, avocado, red onion or anything else you can think of. Spread mayo on top and bottom of the bun and serve. Enjoy!
