Behind the Recipe
Thank Goodness for Bratty Little Sisters
My family used to take a ferry to the outer banks of North Carolina. We’d always stop at this quaint little sidewalk café, where my little sister would order their ahi burger. I remember thinking it a strange choice for such a picky eater, but she always devoured the whole thing. It wasn’t until years later, when I tried to replicate that recipe, that I understood why.
Don’t get me wrong. We love our hamburgers, but this recipe doesn’t come with the same guilt. Say hello to a much lighter (and healthier) alternative.
- 8 oz. Ahi
- 1 cup mayo
- 2 tbsp. capers
- 3 tbsp. lemon juice
- 3 tbsp. dill
- 1 cup pea shoots
- In a bowl, mix lemon juice, capers, dill and mayo.
Preheat Grill to 400 degrees.
Grill Ahi for 4 minutes on each side.
Spread mixture on both ends of the bun.
Place Ahi on bun.

Plate and enjoy!
