Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: World
Serves: 4
  • 3 fresh tuna steaks, ~ 400 gr (14 oz).
  • 8-10 spring onions.
  • 1 red chili pepper.
  • Zest from one lemon.
  • 1 garlic clove.
  • 8-10 mint leafs.
  • A small bunch of flat-leaf parsley.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • 1 teaspoon of ground pepper.
  • For the Tartare sauce:
  • 200 ml (~ 1 cup) of mayonnaise.
  • ~ 15 pickled gherkins (cornichons) chopped into small pieces.
  • 2 tablespoons pickled capers chopped.
  • A small bunch of tarragon, finely chopped.
  1. Add all of the ingredients for the burgers in a blender and create a smooth paste.
  2. Divide the paste into 4-5 pieces and create the burgers. They should be relatively flat so they can be cooked enough inside.
  3. Add a bit of extra-virgin olive oil in a frying pan (or griddle pan) on medium heat. Cook the burgers for ~ 2 minutes each side.
  4. For the Tartare sauce, add all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  5. Serve the burgers hot with the Tartare sauce and salad.
  6. Bon appetit!
