    Units: US | Metric



    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (Japanese breadcrumbs-I used whole wheat )
    • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons Thai sweet chili sauce
    • 2 (5 ounce) cans tuna in water, drained
    • 1/3 cup celery, finely chopped (I used the food processor)
    • 1/3 cup green onion, finely chopped
    • 1/3 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
    • 4 sandwich buns, thin, cut in half and toasted (or leave untoasted if you prefer)
    • 1/3 cup baby greens
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil (if frying)
    • salt and pepper


    1. 1
      If baking(you can also fry-instructions below), preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients. Place 2 tbls. of the sauce in a large bowl. Cover and chill the remaining sauce in the fridge.
    3. 3
      To the same large bowl, add the eggs, panko, soy sauce, and Thai chili sauce. Break up the tuna and add to the bowl. Add celery, green onions and red bell pepper. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir and let stand about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Using wet hands, shape the tuna mixture into 4 patties, about 3/4" thick.
    5. 5
      If you want to fry them, put the oil in a skillet and heat on medium high heat. Turn down the heat to medium and add burgers and saute about 4-5 minutes each side, turning gently.
    6. 6
      If you bake them, place on baking sheet. Bake at 450*F. for 10-12 minutes.
    7. 7
      To serve, spread sandwich buns with remaining mayo/ginger sauce. Add patties to the bottom half of bun. Top with baby greens, and top buns.

      These are terrific tuna burgers! I used regular breadcrumbs instead of panko, otherwise made as directed. Cooked them undisturbed for about 5 minutes on each side and they got a nice crust on them. I used spinach for the greens on the sandwich. Easy to make and full of flavor - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I really wanted to love sounded intriguing to me. But there was just too much panko as posted. I enjoyed the flavored mayo....and I think if you either increased the amount of tuna and threw in some cilantro or basil or reduced the amount of panko these might just turn out perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

      Good luck in the contest! I cut the recipe in half and served atop a fresh Thai slaw. I did top the burgers with the flavored mayonnaise which DH and I both agreed brought a nice flavor to the tuna. Other than using slaw in place of the bun did not change anything, DH loved as is but I was looking for a bit more punch. Thanks for the post.
