We often see folks order these burgers with sweet potato fries - some sweet potato chips would be a nice substitute
Build a hot charcoal fire, or set gas grill on medium high.
Set Ahi steaks in a shallow pan with enough soy sauce to cover half way, marinate 2 1/2 minutes, turn over, marinate another 2 1/2 minutes, remove to a plate, and brush lightly with oil.
Meanwhile, toast split buns, and set aside on plates.
Spread 1 T ginger - wasabi mayo on each bun surface
Spread 1/4 c slaw on each bun surface
Place ahi over hot coals, after 45 seconds, turn 90 degrees to get some nice grill marks, wait 45 more seconds, then turn over and grill for one more minute
Take ahi off grill, place between dressed buns, and serve immediately
