Ingredients
  • 2 in x 160g tins tuna spring water drained and flaked
  • 80 g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Mix tuna, breadcrumbs, beaten egg, lemon juice and spring onions together in a bowl
  2. Using your hands, form 4 patties and place, covered in the fridge for one hour*
  3. Gently heat the oil in a medium sized frying pan. Place the patties into the pan and cook on each side for approximately 3 – 4 minutes until lightly browned and cooked through.
  4. Serve with iceberg lettuce, lemon slices and a little tartar sauce / low fat mayonnaise between wholemeal buns.
Recipe Notes

• You don’t have to place in the fridge for one hour, you can cook these immediately. I just find it helps the patties to bind together better.

Adaptable and Versatile Quick Healthy Tuna Burgers

Let me explain just what I mean by adaptable and versatile.

You see, these quick healthy tuna burgers are ideal for your BBQ too.

That is of course if you’re lucky enough to be able to BBQ!

Nope, Lady Lynne and I still haven’t been able to get the BBQ out once this year. 😮

Now, there’s been some days of good weather during the week where it’s been perfectly possible. But the last thing I want to do after a 9 hour day at work is haul the BBQ out of the garden shed!

So, we look forward to the weekend, with hope in our hearts. It could be this weekend for the annual BBQ. Please let it be this weekend…..

Alas, then of course it’s raining. Ha ha! 😆

But I’m not going to let the weather get me down.

This is why these quick healthy tuna burgers are adaptable and versatile. If you’re able to BBQ them outdoors, then great! It not, shallow fry then indoors, in just a little oil!

Thanks Amanda for Thursday thinking out loud. Whatever your weather, have a great weekend, Lady Lynne and I are off to Braemar.

  1. When are you and Lady Lynne moving into Balmoral ;D I love tuna burgers–I usually add mustard and dill to mine 😀 YUMMERS

      We’re just waiting on the keys 😉

      I’m not so much into the dill, but I’m all there with adding the mustard to these to give them an extra “kick” GREAT!

  2. Great way to use canned tuna! These look delicious! Pinned for later 🙂

  3. You can always find cans of tuna or other fish…in my pantry! A staple!

  4. Yum! I love how simple this is. I love making salmon burgers and topping them with mayonnaise, but tuna also has the good fats, and it’s cheaper, too!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Joyce. I love a good salmon burger too, but for me it’s without the mayonnaise. 🙂

  5. Oh hello! We are totally on the same page this week – showcasing what TUNA can do! 😉

  6. Tuna burgers for the win! Another simple and tasty recipe, Neil. I mistook and though this was your post about yours and Lady Lynne’s trip – but hope to read that soon.
