If you’re a fan of the traditional beef burger, but want to try something else for a change, this is the recipe for you. These tuna burgers have a meaty texture and taste nice and spicy. They’re a great and healthy way of getter some fish in you menu. Also, because they’re made from canned tuna, they’re budget friendly as well.
I’m always a bit scared about cooking fish. It’s a fragile thing to cook with, with quite a delicate flavour. So while on the one hand you need to add flavour to a fish dish to make it interesting, on the other hand, you have to be careful that you don’t overpower the fish. And of course, not overcook the whole thing in the process! These burgers are a simple way of cooking fish.
One simple way of preparing fish is of course tuna salad. While I do eat that regularly, I also wanted to try and something with canned tuna. Which is why I came up with these tuna burgers. While cooking fish can sometimes be tricky, this recipe is pretty much foolproof. Unless you completely burn them, overcooking won’t be a problem.
The biggest challenge with making burgers in general, is to stop them from falling to pieces when you cook them. While you do have to handle these burgers with a bit of care, they’re actually pretty sturdy once they’re cooked. They have a nice crispy outside, but are nice and juice in the middle.
These tuna burgers are also pretty healthy. They’re low-fat as they don’t contain any mayonaise. You will however need some vegetable oil for cooking.
