    very nice burgers and easy to make. I use them for a salad. Gee X  -  20 Aug 2013


    Interesting combination of flavors- like nothing I had ever had before. Needed something else though... next time perhaps some fresh grated ginger, crushed red pepper flakes, more teriyaki sauce. Nice texture though.  -  29 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is by far the best tuna patties recipe I've ever tried. It's so easy to prepare, and it has great flavor. I substituted crushed seasoned croutons for the bread crumbs, and it worked fine. I also realized after the fact that I'd forgotten to sprinkle the corn meal on the patties. They were delicious anyway. It just goes to show that you can't "mess up" this recipe. Thanks for sharing it, Michelle!  -  19 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
