I am still trying to use up the tins of tuna I bought months ago! I'm really not a big fan of tinned tuna, but thought I'd give it one more go, so I bought 4 tins on offer in the supermarket and am slowly getting through them. The two recipes I've tried so far haven't reignited my love of tuna, in fact I haven't even bothered to post them here, but this one was different.
These tuna burgers were delicious, I think the addition of the apple really helped to dilute the weird tinned tuna flavour and the addition of the mustard on the bun was really good. I made four in total and froze the other three and I am looking forward to eating them already!
Tuna Burgers (adapted from http://www.weightwatchers.co.uk/)
340g tinned tuna
1 medium apple, peeled, cored and grated
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
50g dried breadcrumbs
4 medium burger buns
4 tsp Dijon mustard
Mix the burger ingredients together. Allow to stand for 3-5 minutes.
Spray a frying pan with the cooking spray and heat over a low-medium heat.
Form the tuna mixture into 4 patties. Cook until crispy on one side then flip and cook until crispy on the other side.
Serve on the buns with cucumber and Dijon mustard.
