I'll make them tonight. Small chunks of everything (I'll us e a foodprocessor), a little bit of onion, those are my improvements. Let you know how it was!!

Absolutely delicious but I didnt cut my tuna small enough so the burger kept falling apart. Will definately cook again!!

This has to be one of the best burgers i have tasted. I added extra garlic and ginger, finely sliced onions and some green chilli for extra flavour. My only problem was tying to keep the burger together, it kept seperating.

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.
