Lemon Garlic Tuna Burgers

Veggie burgers are often a go-to meal for us on a weeknight, but sometimes we get a little burnt out. These tuna burgers were a nice light, bright and healthy alternative to the same old out-of-the-box ones we’ve been throwing into the rotation a little too often. Plus, they’re so easy!

Lemon Garlic Tuna Burgers
via can you stay for dinner?
(makes 4)

2 6 oz cans tuna fish, drained and flaked
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon each, salt and pepper
juice of half a lemon
3 tablespoons sour cream
1 egg
4 English muffins or hamburger buns
4 leaves romaine
1 small tomato, sliced

Combine tuna, bread crumbs, green onion, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon, sour cream, and egg, and mix well with your hands. Form into 4 patties (they will be wet), place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees F. Serve the burgers on toasted English muffins with romaine and sliced tomato. Spread additional sour cream on each burger (or mayo, if you’re obsessed like me), if desired.

  1. Nice one! I might think about dropping the bread but can’t think what to use instead – maybe just whole wheat bread :)
