Method

  1. Chop the tuna into small chunks, then carry on chopping until the tuna is roughly minced. Tip the tuna into a bowl and mix with the garlic, ginger, soy sauce and coriander. Shape into two burgers, place on a plate, then freeze for 10 mins to firm up.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then cook the burgers for 1-2 mins on each side or until done to your liking. Serve the burgers in toasted buns with lettuce, tomato and avocado.

One of my favourite recipes - the only problem I have is assembling everything fast enough as it gets cold quite quickly.

My very fussy 5 year old LOVED these in spite of a sore throat! They did need very careful handling, but well worth it. We'll be having lots more of these!

Absolutely lovely - I've cooked it twice now and cant wait to try it again. I am going to try it with tinned tuna to see what that its like and will report back P.S. tip - cut the ginger up finely - my food processor didnt cope with big chunks!!

It was great and easy to eat but as far as healthy burgers go; benburgers steak burgers are the best for for flavour and good eating now sold online in the uk.

Delicious, really easy & healthy. Much tastier than just grilled tuna steak.

the flavour was fab, might consider using a food processor to get smaller chunks next time. they certainly need to be very small so it hold together.

These were delicious asnd simple to prepare, just remember to chop the tuna /incredibly/ small or you'll have trouble moulding it.
