Tuna burgers

1 Can of tuna
3 egg whites

Mash the egg whites until light then ass the tuna and mash the lot together. Smear a littlo oil in a frying pan and make 2 - 3 tuna burger shapes.

Then cook em...

Also If i ever make tuna an baked potato i always mix a little hellmans light mayo and some cottage cheese with the tuns to make up more protein and it tastes gooooood too.

    does it tast better than normal tuna straight out of the packet, as i can only eat tuna flavoured with tikka sauce at the moment as i can stomach tuna on it's own the smell just makes me feel sick.

    Actually why not run the tuna under a tap for a few minutes to remove the fishy stench? the maybe add some garlic or something?

    Water packed Tuna is Tuna IN Brine.

    Sometime you will see Tuna packed with Spring Water but this is pointless in my opinion and just for people with surplus cash.

    yes, its tuna in spring water, but as said if cash is short like it is for me some times tuna in brine works just as well,

    You guys don't have water packed tuna in the UK? Hmm...thats no good, I can't stand tuna in oil. Here its pretty cheap, maybe 50 cents per can, dunno what that is in pounds [:p] . Anyways, an alternative to that recipe is:

    1 can of tuna (6 oz)
    1 egg white
    2 tablespoons of bread crumbs, seasoned if you would like

    Mix it well, and make it into one large burger. Cook it in a skillet over medium heat for 4 minutes on each side.

    I find the tuna tastes better (and I feel has less sodium) if you do what PJH20 already said, run it under the water for a bit. I usually put the top back on kinda, and shake it about, and move it around to get the water to the bottom. Then re-drain it. It seems to me like this takes some of the sodium away.

    Once its cooked, throw it on a wheat bun with some barbecue sauce on top. Its pretty good.

    It does taste pretty bad if its been sitting in brine (salt and water) for a long time

    I bought loads of tuna packed in spring water in the UK guys, Sainsbury's has their own brand which was good.

    lol, water and brine tuna cost the same mate. And tuna in water will have less salt which might be an issue for some.

    No. It tastes better than in spring water and not as good as in oil, IMO of course.
