Asian Tuna Sliders

Asian Tuna Sliders

I love these economical, tasty and healthy sliders as an alternative to the regular beef ones because they are so flavorful and easy to make, yet your guests will think you spent lots of time and money on them because they present so nicely. The addition of the spicy mayo and the pickled ginger really give these sliders a kick! You can up the ante by using albacore tuna in the recipe but the light tuna works really well in this dish.

  • Ingredients: 
  • 2 cans light flaked tuna
  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup low fat mayonnaise
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame or peanut oil
  • 1 cup coleslaw or broccoli slaw
  • 1/4 cup sesame salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup pickled ginger, sliced
  • 1/4 cup spicy mayonnaise
  • 1 dozen small buns


Place the tuna, breadcrumbs, eggs, green onion, mayo and salt & pepper in a bowl. Stir until the mixture is nicely combined. Using your hands, form patties which are approx 2-3 inches in diameter. Using a non-stick fry pan, heat the oil over a medium heat and add the sliders (you may have to cook them in 2 batches depending on how many you have) Fry each side for approx 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Meanwhile, add the sesame salad dressing to the coleslaw and stir. When the sliders are ready, spread a little of the spicy mayo onto each bun, add a tuna slider and top with a spoonful of slaw and a few pieces of ginger. Serve warm.
