    1. Combine tuna, egg, breadcrumbs, onion, celery, red pepper, mayonnaise, hot chilli sauce, chilli sauce, dill, salt, pepper, hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Shape into 4 burgers (mixture will be very soft and delicate). Put in the fridge for 30 minutes to make the burgers easier to handle, if desired.
    2. In a non-stick frying pan, fry tuna burgers for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. These are fragile, so be careful when turning them.
    3. Serve on baps with tomato slices and lettuce leaves.

    This recipe is delicious  -  20 Aug 2014


    My family is out of cash and we have canned tuna specially for these hard times, so making this recipe was perfect. It took 30 minutes to make from start to finish along with cooking baked potatoes. Everyone absolutely loved this recipe and the cost is so low even paupers like me can live like kings. (stomach-wise) hehe Seriously, this is a lightning fast, budget friendly and super yummy recipe.. it is also very forgiving when you dont have all the ingredients.  -  13 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a fantastic recipe. I have made tuna patties in the past and this recipe had the best flavor and consistency...similar to crab cakes. I added a bit more bread crumbs...about 3/4 cup total and served it with some southwestern flavored sour cream dip, but tartar would be good. I also made these on my George Foreman grill. Just spray the grill with oil spray and cook about four minutes. No need to flip or anything. Highly recommend.  -  17 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
