Tuna Burgers With Sprouts And Peanut Sauce
Yield: 6 servings.

2 cups fresh bread crumbs
2 pounds fresh tuna, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup brewed green tea
Tabasco sauce to taste
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
Juice of 2 limes
8-ounce container mixed crunchy bean sprouts, like adzuk, green pea or lentil
1/2 cup chopped toasted peanuts

In a large bowl, mix the bread crumbs, tuna, mayonnaise and mustard.
Season with salt and pepper. Form the tuna mixture into 6 firm
patties. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, over medium heat, stir together the peanut
butter and tea and cook, stirring occasionally, until hot, about
3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add Tabisco.
Cover and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, heat 3 tablespoons of
the oil. Add 3 patties and cook, turning once, until well browned,
about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and set aside.
Repeat with the remaining oil and patties. Place the patties in
the oven and bake until just pink in the center, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, reheat the peanut mixture. Stir in the lime juice.
Thin the mixture with water if it seems too thick. Set aside.

Remove the patties from the oven and transfer them to dinner plates.
Coat each patty lightly with the peanut-butter mixture. Top each
patty with the sprouts and peanuts. Serve immediately.
