Could do with an egg to hold it together but very tasty.

Delicious and full of flavour! Great for fussy eaters, or those not too adventuruous with fish, and are looking for a healthier option. Sweet chilli sauce works great drizzled over too.

Fantastic recipe to help kids eat healthy oily fish. Use frozen ginger to save time and put all ingredients in the food processor. Made these lots and they have always stayed formed whilst cooking. I serve with sweet potato wedges and salad.

I had a taste of these before I cooked them. Lovely variation of tartare

The best fish burger I have ever had. I was in love with it from the first bite and completely full by the end of it! Simply delicious. Like the calorie count too. If my husband likes, then everyone will like it. Especially when he asked for seconds!

Fantastic. I added a chilli as well for a bit of a kick and blitzed it together in a mini food processor. Had no problem with them falling apart when cooking. Excellent replacement for beefburgers and much healthier too !

Superb.... I just added a bit of chopped chilli to it and left out the avacado as I felt it was a bit too much.... Very tasty as an alternative..

Made this with tinned tuna (in brine) - made 3 times the amount so tripled most of the ingredients and added 1 egg as I was suspicious of how it was going to hold together. It was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be making these again! They held together okay but I wouldn't leave out the egg as they weren't brilliant for sticking together.

Delicious! Chopping up the tuna by hand sounds like a chore but is no hassle at all. I just add a red chilli and maybe a little more soy sauce and serve with oven baked potato wedges and mayo. Mmm!

Going to experiment with Sea Bass instead of tuna- will report back if this is a complete disaster!
