Preparation of the tuna burgers

  1. Start by preparing the tuna fillet, already cleaned, making a tartare . Use a good knife and cutting board. It should not be chopped too finely but must be consistent.
  2. Now move on to the preparation of the cherry tomatoes. After washing and drying them, remove the inner part with the seeds and the outer skin. Always with a knife, cut them finely and set aside.
  3. Chop the parsley, to your liking. Add it to the previously cut tomatoes.
  4. Now make the burger dough by mixing all the ingredients. Start with the tuna tartare and add the tomato and parsley mixture, a whole egg, extra virgin olive oil and breadcrumbs. Of course, add salt and pepper and mix everything, even with the help of your hands.
  5. Take a small portion of the dough and shape the hamburger. If you don’t have a specific tool, just flatten them slightly with your hands. Continue until the 4 portions are formed .
  6. Cook the tuna burgers in a pan. Heat a drizzle of oil on the non-stick pan and, as soon as it is hot, place the burgers on it. Just cook them 2-3 minutes per side.

If you don’t have fresh tuna available, you can vary the recipe by replacing it with 160 g of canned tuna in olive oil . If you want to give your burgers more flavor, you can add 1 clove of garlic or 4 or 5 desalted capers to the mixture (both ingredients minced, of course). Or… there are always ourtuna meatballs to try!


Tuna burgers can be stored raw or cooked in the fridge for a couple of days . Freezing them is not recommended as they are ready in 5 minutes .
