Wasabi Aioli and Tuna Sliders

As much as I enjoy sinking my teeth into a juicy beef burger, I asked Keith to come up with some healthier options for me to reduce the amount of red meat in my diet. These little tuna burger sliders did just that and so much more.

I love tuna and I love Asian flavors. These little tuna burgers were made especially for me (so I am a bit biased), but I think they will please even the most picky of palettes. The simple ingredients create a great burger flavor that eats more like meat than fish. I love my tuna quite rare, but Keith likes his cooked through. He made a selection of each so that we could both enjoy these juicy little sliders. He topped his creation with lettuce, tomatoes, and the pièce de résistance, wasabi mayo.
