The key to a good tuna burger is to avoid overprocessing and overcooking. Cook them on the stovetop so you have better heat control and can ensure that they stay a nice, moist medium rare inside. Serve with the Thai-Style Dipping Sauce.
With a very sharp knife, cut the tuna into 1/4-inch dice. Alternatively, cut the tuna into 1-inch chunks and pulse in a food processor until just chopped, about 4 quick pulses. take care not to overprocess. Gently stir in the cilantro, onion, mayonnaise, ginger, chile, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Shape the tuna into 4 equal 1-inch-thick patties. Refrigerate, uncovered, for at least 20 minutes and up to 4 hours.
Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the tuna burgers until nicely browned on both sides but still pink in the center, 2 to 4 minutes total. Don’t overcook or the burgers will be dry.
