. . . . . . December 29th . . . after all the feasting came the no guilt tuna burger sandwich – simply delicious!
Recipe for Tuna Burgers
2 tins of tuna in water – drained, or equivalent weight in fresh tuna (uncooked), roughly chopped
1 egg, beaten
Large handful of oats (ground briefly in food processor) or wholemeal breadcrumbs/gluten-free breadcrumbs or cooked quinoa
2 very finely sliced spring onions
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
1 clove of garlic very finely chopped
Dash of ketchup (optional!)
Squeeze of lemon/lime juice to taste
Season with black pepper and celery salt
Your favourite bread/rolls
Mix all ingredients together
Make into burger patties (I put them in the freezer for 45 minutes on a baking tray so they keep their shape during cooking)
Fry over medium-high heat in some olive oil. Cook for about 3 minutes a side until golden and piping hot (fresh tuna will require longer cooking)
Good with with baby spinach/rocket, lettuce or watercress leaves, red onions, ketchup, a dollop of plain or lemon mayo/home-made tartare sauce/chilli mayo/sweet chilli sauce, cucumber, radishes, gherkins, capers etc, etc, etc – enjoy!
