Tuna burgers are a healthier alternative to traditional beef patties. You can make do without the bun and fries. Instead, have it with salad. It is also a good idea to use fresh tuna that is processed a food processor instead of canned ones.
1Â mediumÂ sized orangeÂ sweet potato, peeled and coarsely chopped
1Â (425 g)Â canÂ tuna in water, drained
2Â eggs, lightly whisked
25Â gÂ bread crumbs
2Â tablespoonsÂ fresh parsley, chopped
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
1Â tablespoonÂ olive oil
Steam the sweet potatoes in a microwave or steamer until it becomes tender. Drain them and rinse with cold water. Transfer it to a large bowl and mash it with a fork or potato masher. Add the tuna, egg, parsley and bread crumbs. Mix well. Season it with salt and pepper. Make 8 patties out of the tuna and sweet potato mixture.
Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the patties for 3-5 minutes on each side or until it becomes golden brown. Transfer it to a plate lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil.
Place the patties on individual buns and season it with salt and pepper. Top it with lettuce and pickles. Serve with fries.
