• 2 tins shredded tuna in oil
  • 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 sprig shallots/spring onion
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • A little oil for frying
I love tuna and so do my kids. So other than just making sandwiches or a salad I decided to prepare patties. They enjoyed these very much as Tuna Burgers 🙂 It’s pretty easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare as well as cook.

Quick Instructions

  1. Get all your ingredients ready. These are 2 tins shredded tuna in oil, 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, 1 sprig shallots/spring onion, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 egg, beaten and a little oil for frying. Put the first four ingredients in a bowl and combine gently. Roll them into balls them flatten them and put in a grease-proof paper lined tray (This is so they don’t stick to the tray). Refrigerate for at least 30-40 mins in order for the patties to firm up.
  2. Heat oil in pan, add the patties and fry until browned. About a minute and a half on each side.  You’re done, enjoy!

You can enjoy these as Tuna Burgers or just as they are with a salad. I put a dollop of sweet chilli sauce and garnished with some fresh mint leaves… yum!
