Tuna is a versatile and meaty fish.  rich in omega 3 fatty acids (good fat)  and high protein (60g per 100g) and about 10% of daily required potassium.  It is full of flavour with these typical Asian ingredients.  I substitute a portobello mushroom for a burger bun and serve with a large helping of veggies, making this dish low GI, low calorie and low carb.

Instructions
  1. Chop the tuna into small chunks, then continue to chop until the tuna is roughly minced (it's ok to leave small pieces) as it helps with texture. Now tip the tuna into a mixing bowl and combine with the garlic, ginger, soy sauce and coriander. Shape into individual burgers about 100g per burger. Place onto a plate and put in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then cook the burgers for approx 1-2 minutes on each side, depending on how pink you like the centre. It really only needs 90 seconds each side in a moderately hot pan for medium rare.

  3. Serve the burgers in toasted buns, with lettuce, tomato and avocado. For a carb friendly version, replace the bun with a portobello mushroom.
