Expert Tips

You can use canned crab or salmon instead of tuna.

When time is not on our side, canned tuna can be our best allies. Canned tuna is not just for salads; it can be used in pastas, tacos and even to make burgers. When I don’t have enough time to prepare dinner, I open up my pantry and find a couple of cans of tuna to prepare these delicious burgers. What I like about them most, aside from their delicious taste with lemon and jalapeño, is that I can have them ready in 20 minutes.

Directions

  • 1 Mix the tuna, eggs and ground bread in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the lemon juice, finely chopped onions, cilantro and garlic. Divide the mixture into 6 to 8 equal portions and create patties.
  • 2 Heat 2 to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Fry the patties for 3 to 5 minutes on both sides or until completely browned.
  • 3 Serve the patties on burger buns with lettuce, tomato and guacamole. Enjoy!
