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.

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.
