(actually Tuna or Salmon Burgers)

 1 pound  center-cut tuna or salmon fillet, preferably wild, 
          skin and small bones removed

 1/4 cup  finely minced shallot or green onion
 2 Tbsp   capers, drained, rinsed, coarsely chopped
 2 tsp    grated fresh ginger
 1 Tbsp   low-sodium soy sauce

          freshly ground pepper to taste

 1 Tbsp   sesame oil
 1 tsp    worcestershire sauce
 2 Tbsp   chopped cilantro

          olive oil for griddle or pan
          lime wedges for garnish
          whole grain hamburger buns
          condiments (e.g. soy + wasabi)

Step 1: Mince fish using sharp knife (not food processor). Add remaining ingredients (up through cilantro). Blend with spatula or spoon. Shape into half-inch-thick patties. Refrigerate an hour or more; up to several hours. Keep covered in refrigerator.

Step 2: Heat a heavy nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Brush with olive oil and turn heat to medium. Sear patties 2-3 minutes per side. Serve on buns.
