About this recipe: A lovely and healthy alternative to beef burgers, tuna fish burgers are lower in fat but not in flavour! Simply pan fry the piquant mixture of tuna, egg white, garlic, breadcrumbs and teriyaki and hot pepper sauces and serve on a plate with steamed rice and veg, or on wholemeal buns with fresh lettuce, tomato and condiments.

This was a really quick and easy dish, I altered the recipe as I didn't have any teriyaki sauce, I just used plain jalepeno hot sauce, it worked very well. Lovely and healthy burgers for any occasion. - 17 Aug 2012
