Who doesn’t love a burger? These ones use inexpensive tinned tuna and are served with a spicy mayo that takes only a minute or so to make.


Breadcrumbs, fresh

40 g

Tuna in spring water, drained

1 can(s), large, drained

Spring Onions

2 medium, trimmed and sliced

Coriander, fresh

30 g, roughly chopped

Lime Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoon(s)

Reduced Fat Mayonnaise

30 g

Egg, whole, raw

1 large, raw, lightly beaten

Vegetable Oil

1 tablespoon(s)

Wholemeal bread roll

4 medium


4 leaf/leaves, small

Reduced Fat Mayonnaise

75 g

Sweet Chilli Sauce

2 tablespoon(s)


1 zest(s) of 1

Lime Juice, Fresh

2 tablespoon(s)


  1. Combine the breadcrumbs, tuna, spring onions, coriander and the lime juice in a bowl. Mix in the mayonnaise, then enough of the beaten egg to make a sticky, but not wet, mixture. Season and shape into 4 even-sized burgers. These benefit from some chilling so if you have time, put them in the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. To make the sweet chilli lime mayo, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Preheat the oven to 140°C, fan 120°C, gas mark 1. Put the oil in a nonstick frying pan over a medium heat, then cook the burgers, 2 at a time, for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden. Keep all the burgers warm in the oven.
  4. Warm or toast the rolls, then spread generously with the sweet chilli and lime mayo. Sandwich a burger in each roll with a few lettuce leaves, then serve.
