Tuna Burgers with Vidalia Onions and Chipotle Sauce Recipe

Posted on 11th of January, 2010 by Lévana

One of the great dishes we showcased at last Monday’s demo, Fish Cookery. Trust me: You won’t be shortchanged!

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 large vidalia onions, sliced very thin
2 pounds ground tuna (meat: substitute bison, lean beef or turkey)
Freshly ground pepper to taste
6 hamburger buns, split open (I recommend you experiment with sprouted bread buns: Ezekiel etc….)
2 beefsteak tomatoes, thinly sliced

Chipotle sauce (recipe follows)

Heat the oil in a skillet, and add the onions. Cook, covered, over medium heat, until brown, about 20 minutes. Set aside. Preheat the broiler (or the grill, if you are cooking outdoors). Combine the meat and the ground pepper. Form about 6 patties about 1-inch thick. Broil about 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
Put the buns under the broiler, split side up, for about one minute.
To serve, spread some of the onions on each bun, and top with a hamburger, sliced tomatoes and a dab of chipotle sauce (recipe follows).

Chipotle sauce:
2 canned chipotle peppers, with 2 tablespoons of the liquid
1/2 cup ketchup
4 large cloves garlic
6 sprigs cilantro
Salt to taste

Puree all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Makes about 1 cup.
