There are literally thousands of different ways to eat tuna, and by far one of my favourites are tuna burgers. When it comes to tuna burgers, there are probably another thousand ways to customize them. That’s the beauty of cooking with fresh ingredients, you’re not limited to the flavours boxed meals come in.
With one-bowl recipes like these, I like to experiment with flavours I’m loving in that moment. Take this tuna patty recipe for example, I had just bought a fresh bunch of dark kale the day before and loved the flavour so much I knew it had to be added to the patties.
Add in the dill, goats cheese and …mmm…you’ve got a winner here. Since the only uncooked ingredient here will be the eggs, when you cook the patties, it’s a matter of waiting for them to turn that lovely, crispy, golden brown before assembling the burger.
Don’t forget the tzatziki (here’s a recipe) here, it’s got that familiar freshness that goes oh so well with fishy flavours.
- 1 can skipjack tuna
- ½ cup cooked quinoa
- 1 cup dark kale
- 1 red bell pepper
- ¼ finely chopped red onion
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped dill
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 6 hamburger buns
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tomato (sliced)
- 1 avocado (sliced)
- ¼ cup goats cheese
Roast whole red bell pepper in oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes, turning once.When done, let cool and chop finely. While red bell pepper roasts cook quinoa on stovetop to specifications on packaging to arrive at ½ cup cooked. At the same time quinoa cooks, saute dark kale in pan with coconut oil. When done, let cool and chop finely.
In bowl, combine tuna, chopped dill, red onion, kale, quinoa, egg, red bell pepper, salt and pepper
Heat 2 tbsp coconut oil on medium-hot non stick pan. Form tuna mix into equal palm sized patties (should yield approximately 6). Arrange patties in clockwise formation on pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on one side until golden brown crispy crust develops, then turn and cook for 3 minutes.
While patties are cooking, heat buns in the oven.
Assemble burgers with avocado slices, tomato slice, and top with tzatziki sauce, then enjoy!
