Fish Burgers with Dilled Slaw







1 1/2 pounds fresh or frozen tuna and/or salmon fillets

1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon pickled sushi ginger, finely chopped

1 tablespoon Asian chili sauce

1 – 2 teaspoons prepared wasabi paste

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

3 pita bread rounds, quartered

Green Cabbage Slaw

Coarsely chopped tomato (optional)

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Finely chop fish.* In a large bowl, combine fish, cilantro, lime juice, 4 teaspoons of the oil, the ginger, chili sauce, wasabi paste, garlic, salt, and pepper. Shape mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  2. For a charcoal grill, place patties on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 10 to 12 minutes or until done (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. Brush pita quarters with the remaining oil. Toast pita quarters on the grill. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties, then pita quarters on greased grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
  3. Serve burgers between pita quarters with Green Cabbage Slaw and, if desired, chopped tomato. Makes 6 servings.
