1. Finely chop the onion, and microwave for 3 minutes. Cool really well.
2. Microwave the tofu, uncovered for 2 minutes. Drain the excess water well. Add the chopped sardine sashimi, Step 1, beaten egg, panko, and A ingredients, and mix really well.
3. Divide the mixture from Step 2 into 6 portions, and shape into oval patties. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan, fry both sides of the hamburgers until golden brown. Cover with a lid, and steam-fry for about 2 minutes.
4. When the hamburgers have cooked through, set them aside on a plate. Wipe excess oil from the frying pan, add the B ingredients, and simmer to thicken the sauce. Put the hamburgers back into the frying pan, and coat them well in the sauce.
5. Serve on a plate, garnish with grated daikon radish, and it's done.
