  Fritas de Tuna (Cuban Style Tuna Burgers), Cuban Ketchup and Shoestring Potatoes
  • This is Terry's take on a Cuban style tuna burger. These are typically served with shoestring fries and her Cuban Ketchup.

  • 1 pound fresh yellowfin tuna, skinned and coarse ground
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup sweet orange or yellow pepper, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tespoons fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons smoked sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

    Cuban Ketchup

    Shoestring Fries



  • in a saute pan, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add onion and pepper, saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, saute another minute. Add salt, pepper, and paprika. Remove from heat and place in a bowl and chill in refrigerator. When veggies are cold mix with tuna and form four burgers.
  • Grill or pan saute burgers about 4-5 minutes per side. We like to use potato rolls with these burgers. Top with Cuban Ketchup and shoestring potatoes.
