Tuna Burgers




It's a struggle figuring out how to get more fish into my family. Although, I can't blame them for my struggles to serve fish...I just don't get that excited for it! So this recipe looked like a great compromise.

I made 4 patties with 2 cans of tuna, and we ate them bun-less, I guess more like Salmon Patties. I loved the combination of chili sauce and mayo in the burgers, (reminded me of Bang Bang Shrimp). My husband and I loved ours, our two-year-old didn't touch them, but that wasn't a surprise.

Tuna Burgers

1 (7 oz) can tuna, drained and flaked
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chili sauce
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon (to taste) Old Bay Seasoning


Combine the first 4 ingredients. Blend next 3 ingredients. Stir into tuna mixture. Form 4 patties. Fry lightly in oiled skillet over medium heat about 5 minutes or until browned. Serve.
