Amazin' Asian Ahi Tuna Burger Recipe

So I have this ethical dilemma because I want to post recipes here of the dishes I try this month, but suspect book publishers might not love that idea so much. But I found a link to the recipe for the Hungry Girl Ahi Tuna Burgers online, so that seemed like a fair compromise. If you're interested, click here. I added some chopped cilantro to the top of our burgers, which made ALL the difference as far as we were concerned. (Except for dad, who declined, claiming that cilantro tastes like soap.) Mom and Michael both said they'd add a little salt to the burgers prior to cooking...maybe a touch of garlic. And I cooked them on the grill, but my panel of experts explained that I probably could have gotten a nicer coloring and sear by pan cooking them. You'll have to do the tinkering yourself...but seriously--don't leave out the cilantro!

PS--each burger has approximately 246 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and 3 grams of fiber.

i agree with your Dad, I think Cilantro tastes like soap. I find a lot of people love it, but most feel strongly about it....Ok my latest burger love is actually salmon burgers from Costco...sounds weird but they are actually good, cook in 10 minutes in the oven from frozen, yours sound great...try mine on a busy night
