A Little More Omega-3 ~ Tuna Burgers (Gluten & Dairy Free)

These tuna burgers are amazing….and healthy! Packed full of protein and omega-3, they are grilled instead of fried! I just showed the photo of the burger since I eat it plain like that, but you can certainly do it like a “normal” non-allergic person and have the full lettuce, tomato, cheese, tartar sauce, etc on a nice gluten free bun! But its still pretty darn tasty just by itself. You could also throw in whatever seasoning you like to this…I’m pretty basic so i stuck with just the salt! LOL. You can also double the amount of breadcrumbs and celery & add more veggies and make 4 patties… since  there’s just the 2 of us….I cut it down and just made 2, and then there’s more fish per serving too! Give em a try! Enjoy! 🙂

Tuna Burgers (Printable Version)

Ingredients:

1 can (6 to 7 ounces) Albacore tuna, drained and flaked

1/4 cup dry gluten free bread crumbs

1/4 cup finely chopped celery & onion

2 Tbsp mayonnaise

1 egg, beaten

Dash of salt

Directions:

In a bowl, combine the tuna, bread crumbs, celery, onion, mayonnaise, salt and egg. Shape into 2 patties. On a greased George Foreman, cook patties for 4-5 minutes on medium heat or until internal temperature reaches 160 F or higher.

Time for a Little Omega-3

I’m not a big fish fan……but I can tolerate tuna, as long as its Albacore in water. And who doesn’t need a nice healthy does of Omega-3 right? I kinda forget about tuna…. of course there’s tuna noodle casserole, which I’m gonna share with you now. I’ve got some other great tuna recipes coming… my nutritionist says people should have fish at least once every 2 weeks, if not once a week. I also did buy some omega-3 pills, so hopefully I’ll start getting enough Omega-3 now! You could easily substitute the tuna here for a can of chunk chicken breast (I get mine at Costco and its so handy to have when you don’t have time to cook up fresh chicken!) for those of you who don’t like tuna. (You KNOW who I’m talking about here! Hehe ;)- )  Anyhow, enjoy! 🙂
