By: 0

You can turn plain old canned tuna into a delicious meal by adding just a few ingredients.  Flax meal and omega-3 eggs form a nice matrix for these burgers and add metabolism-boosting omega-3 fatty acids.  Serve this dish with grilled peppers and tomatoes!!


3 cans (14 ounces each) water-packed chunk light tuna, drained

4 scallions, minced

2 omega-3 eggs, beaten

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 cup flax meal

2 tablespoons black mustard seed

1 tablespoon finely minced fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon soy sauce

2 teaspoons olive oil


In a large bowl, combine the tuna, scallions, eggs, garlic, flax meal, mustard seed, cilantro and soy sauce.  Form into 2 patties.  Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the burgers and cook for about 6 minutes on each side or until browned on both sides and cooked through.
