  • 1/2 Del Monte® Avocado, pitted and finely diced
  • 1/2 cup Del Monte® Pineapple, cut into 1/4" cubes
  • 1/2 Del Monte® Mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into ¼” dice
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice from Del Monte® Limes
  • 4 (6 oz.) tuna steaks
  • 1/2 habanero pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp. fine sea salt, divided
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 tbsp. prepared wasabi paste (optional)
  • 1 Del Monte® Vine Ripe Tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 butter lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise


In a medium bowl stir to combine mango, pineapple, avocado, lime juice, habanero, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Set aside.

Prepare a hot charcoal grill fire or preheat a gas grill on high heat for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle tuna steaks with remaining ½ teaspoon salt and pepper. Grill tuna steaks, turning once, until browned on both sides but still pink in the middle, 2-3 minutes per side.

If using wasabi paste, in a small bowl stir to combine mayonnaise and wasabi.

Spread both sides of each burger bun with mayonnaise. Top bottom of each bun with 2 lettuce leaves and a tomato slice. Place a tuna steak on each. Top with a big spoonful of pineapple-mango salsa, and finish with top half of buns.
