Exceptionally good and healthy although I could imagine them being a tad bland if seasoning and some chilli isn't added. Per other posts, its certainly important to really finely chop the tuna, but if left alone in the frying pan (ie; moved only to turn over) they hold together well. Recommended.

these were gorgeous.i minced my tuna in a blender and had no problems with them staying together.i also added spring onions and whilst griddling i squezzed lemon juice over them which kept them nice and juicy.sweet chilli sauce went very nice with them too.

I tried this with tinned tuna and used extra of pretty much everything (couldn't resist) but stupidly forgot that tinned tuna is already salty and with extra soy sauce that ruined it a bit :( Good recipe though - quick and easy and good texture, though I added an egg white to hold it together so not sure how it would have gone without. The burgers were a nice change, I may experiment with other herbs and spices and maybe tinned salmon.

The tuna burgers looked and tasted lovely! Chopping the tuna into small enough pieces was hard work though, so it took me a bit longer (unfortunately I don't have a food processor). I left out the ginger and it still tasted good!

I didn't cut the tuna small enough so the burgers fell apart, I thought they tasted ok but nothing startling and the tribe didn't like them at all so won't be making them again.

The foodprocessor worked great. I always have a tub ginger in the house, that's so much easier. But the burgers lacked flavour, I didn't have fresh coriander so I used dried but that doesn't have much taste and I probably didn't use enough soysauce and ginger. So next weekend I'll try these again because they tasted very nice, really.
