Move over beef. Sushi grade tuna combined with Thai flavors make this an irresistible burger.

2 spray(s) cooking spray
1 pound(s) uncooked tuna, sushi grade
2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
1 Tbsp ginger root, grated or finely chopped
1 Tbsp lemon grass, finely chopped
2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), finely chopped
2 tsp fish sauce
1 Tbsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise
1/4 tsp sriracha chili sauce, or other hot sauce (to taste)
4 item(s) light hamburger roll(s) or bun(s), toasted

Coat a large griddle, outdoor grill rack or stovetop grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.

Cut tuna into bite-size chunks; pulse in a food processor 4 to 5 times. In a large bowl, combine tuna, cilantro, ginger, lemon grass, garlic and fish sauce; evenly divide mixture into four balls and then gently press each one into a 3 1/2-inch patty. Cook burgers 3 minutes per side for medium (or longer until desired degree of doneness).

Combine mayonnaise and Sriracha in a small bowl.

Serve each burger on a toasted bun with about 3/4 teaspoon mayonnaise mixture. Yields 1 burger per serving.
If you can’t find lemon grass, use 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest in its place.
