Tuna Burger with Old Bay Aioli. Quick, easy, and perfect for a weeknight dinner. A great alternative to a regular burger. You can make it with ahi tuna too!
Ready to spice up burger night? This Tuna Burger with Old Bay Aioli is your answer to a quick, easy, and healthy weeknight dinner! Using tuna cuts down on the fishy flavor and the Old Bay Aioli gives this burger a punch.
I've seen a ton of recipes for salmon burgers, which made me think... why not a tuna burger? Let me tell you, tuna is the way to go. The burgers are not fishy tasting at all, and the Old Bay Aioli gives it a nice kick. I thawed out frozen tuna and cut it into little chunks. Then added panko, spices, mayo, and green onions. It came together super quick and cooked even quicker!
I tried to substitute canned tuna for the fresh tuna in this recipe. The burgers using canned tuna came out very mushy. The flavor was still there, however. I wouldn't recommend using canned tuna.
This Old Bay Aioli recipe is inspired by Cookie and Kate Fake Aioli. I love the Old Bay Aioli sauce in this recipe. It's way easier than making an authentic aioli and you don't have to worry about using raw eggs.
