Ingredients

PATTIES:

  • 2 cans (170g) Ocean’s Flaked Light Tuna, drained
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ⅓ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tbsp red onion, diced
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
  • Coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

 

BURGER ASSEMBLY:

  • 4 whole-grain burger buns
  • ½ field cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 4 pieces butter lettuce
  • Optional: Tzatziki 

Directions

 

  1. In a large bowl, combine burger patty ingredients. Use a fork to combine ingredients well. 
  2. Form into 4 equal patties and set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook patties until golden brown and heated through, approx. 5-7 minutes per side, adding more oil for the second side as needed.
  5. Toast your burger bun if desired. Top with cucumber, avocado, tomato, lettuce and any other desired condiments.

Tips and Tricks

To ensure patties stay together and don’t crumble, make sure tuna is well-drained. Pat dry with paper towel to get rid of any extra liquid. Alternatively, bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes for a more compact patty. 

Swap dill for basil for a different flavour twist.
