Tuna Burger Recipes

Fast, Easy Fish Cakes


Summer is rapidly approaching, and that means one thing—barbeque season! But for all you pescatarians and dieters out there, burgers and hot dogs may not be your cup of tea. Instead, you can make a tuna burger. Tuna is high in protein amd vitamin D, and is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Here, we present two tuna burger recipes, courtesy of Starkist, that take less than 10 minutes to prepare.
