Cajun Tuna Burgers
2 (12-oz.) cans Chicken of the Sea® Chunk Light Tuna in Water
4 (4-oz.) cans Chicken of the Sea® No Drain Solid Light Tuna
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs - made from 4 slices toasted or day-old bread
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup diced red bell peppers
1/2 cup diced green bell peppers
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
6 100% whole wheat hamburger buns
sliced red onions
6 Tablespoons low fat mayonnaise
Toast the 4 slices of bread in a toaster or put them in the oven to toast up. Make a crumb mixture using a food processor, pulsing the processer until a fine crumb is obtained.
In bowl, combine the Chicken of the Sea® Tuna, breadcrumbs and eggs. Add next 5 ingredients to tuna mixture; blend well.
Evenly divide and shape the tuna mixture into six patties. In a large skillet, heat oil on medium heat until hot. Cook tuna burgers on both sides until browned and heated through. Alternatively, those burgers can be made on the grill using a grill-safe pan.
Spread 1 T. mayonnaise on each of the six hamburger buns, top with a tuna burger, lettuce, tomato and onion.
Makes six servings.
15 to 20 minutes
Next time make Cajun Burgers with Chicken of the Sea® Albacore Tuna, Pink Skinless and Boneless Salmon, Crab or Mackerel. They’re just as tasty and easy to make.
