Gosh, I can't believe how long ago I made this burger... it's a real wonder I could still find the recipe in my bursting book of recipe notes! You'll have to excuse the photo, too, I blame it on being a rather impromptu dinner, otherwise I'd have to blame it on my lacking skills in the photography AND food styling departments ;-)
I'll have to say that the original idea for this burger is not mine, it's Tom Aikens'... for me this burger exemplifies the impressions I got from my visit to Tom's Kitchen - the menu seemed to consist of staple foods, but with a twist. Every casual restaurant has its burger (and most are horrible, ground meat scraps, cooked to shoe-sole consistency) - tuna burger is something you'd be hard-pressed to find in this country... sadly, although we're surrounded by the sea, great quality fish is not easy to come by, tuna being one of the worst offenders, I have to say, as most people simply don't know how to make it... ask the average person and they'll start explaining how to expertly open a can! And if they can't make it, they won't buy it, of course!
So if you can get your hands on good tuna, please do... you might prefer to eat your tuna au naturel, in a carpaccio, or quickly sear it to have with a refreshing summer salad - I won't be mad at you! But if you have some time on hand and want to try something different with tuna that will knock your socks off, do try this recipe: they're super tasty, low in calories and incredibly good for you! (You never thought you'd hear that in one sentence now, did you?)
