Make healthy burgers out of canned tuna, and spice them up with a lemon garlic mayonnaise! Use whole wheat sandwich thins and low fat mayonnaise to bring this down to 250 calories per burger.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sautee garlic in pan until brown.
  2. Combine garlic, lemon juice and mayonnaise.
  3. Combine tuna, scallions, bell pepper and eggs in a bowl.
  4. Separate tuna mixture into 8 patties.
  5. Grill patties.
  6. Put a patty on each sandwich thin with about a tbsp of the mayonnaise mixture.
  7. Note: You may want to put the tuna in a sieve with something heavy on top for a couple of hours to get it to drain, otherwise it's harder to get these burgers to stick together.

A tasty burger that is healthier then the tuna burgers I have enjoyed in the past. I made as written and we were both surprised at what a nice tasty accent the garlic mayo was to the tuna. The only thing I would do different next time is to make a little mayo as we had quite a bit left. Thanks for the post.

This was pretty good. I wasn't to interested in tuna burgers but they turned out great. I put in ritz crackers to bind but it was still watery. I cooked on the griddle and even though they fell apart, we scooped it up with a fork and ate everything together. we also had some salad greens on the burger.

This were nice and tasty. I do think that a binding agent is needed as did tend to fall apart. Made for PAC 2012.
