Incredible fish burgers

Recipe for 4

1 cup dried breadcrumbs
2 cans (150grs/each) tuna in water, well-drained
1/4 cup shredded carrot
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons of unsalted butter for frying
For serving:
8 slices Cheese
8 buns, cut in half horizontally
8 teaspoons mayonnaise
lettuce leaves


Place 1/2 cup breadcrumbs into shallow bowl and set aside.
Combine the remaining breadcrumbs, tuna, carrots, onions, eggs, lemon juice, olive oil, pepper and salt in a mixing bowl and mix with your hands until well mixed.
Divide tuna mixture into 8 equal portions and form 8 patties. Place patties into breadcrumbs in bowl, coating both sides.
Melt butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat until sizzling. Add tuna patties. Cook, turning once, until outsides are crisp and insides are heated through (5 to 6 minutes). Top each patty with 1 slice of cheese during last minute of cooking.
Spread cut-sides of top half of buns with mayonnaise. Place tuna patties onto bottom half of buns; top with lettuce leaves and top half of buns.
Serve the burger immediately with a nice salad on the side. Enjoy!
