This bap burger has become our kids’ favorite new meal with simple and healthy ingredients
Bap burger or rice burger just includes a few ingredients and it’s such a simple and satisfying meal. The kids were obsessed the first time I made it and said it was one of the best things they had ever eaten. If you love Asian food and especially like the flavors of CA rolls or kimbap, then this recipe is for you. It can also be easily modified just like all my other recipes so you can create different variations.
The rice will become the “buns” for this burger and instead of meat, you’ll use canned tuna. You can also use leftover salmon. Okay, let’s make one together!
Here’s how to make your own Bap Burger
- cooked white short or medium grain rice
- canned tuna in water and drained
- fried egg
- sriracha sauce
- roasted salted seaweed
- salt and pepper to taste
- roasted sesame seeds
There aren’t any measurements for this because it just uses common sense and you can make as much or little as you want. Place your rice in a bowl and season it with a little salt and pepper. Cut the roasted seaweed into little pieces and add them to the rice. Mix it into the rice. Let it cool so you’re not using hot rice. While that’s cooling, get a bowl and line it with some plastic wrap. You want it to be big enough because it’s going to wrap around the bap burger to help form the shape. In another bowl, add the strained tuna. You don’t want watery tuna or you’ll have a soggy burger! Mix in some mayonnaise and sriracha sauce. You can modify this part so that it’s as spicy or creamy as you like.
Place a layer of rice on the bottom and pat it down so it fills the bowl.
Add the fried egg on top of the rice. Then add a layer of the tuna mixture.
Add some sliced avocado and finish off with another layer of rice on top.
Once the rice is on top, take your plastic wrap and place it all around the top and sides. Take out the burger carefully using the plastic wrap and shape it gently with your hands to form the shape.
You can choose to eat the burger on a plate or straight from the wrap. My kids ate it with their hands and carefully removed the wrap as they enjoyed their delicious bap burger.
JJ said it was certified bussin which means it was absolutely delicious! After eating one, I was stuffed. The flavors all combined really make this a delicious snack or meal.
Again, you can modify it with leftover salmon and even add some stir-fried kimchi for added heat and flavor.
Hope you enjoy this bussin bap burger like we did! You can also watch the video tutorial here for a better visual guide.
