1 (6 ounce) can
water-packed tuna, drained
hot pepper sauce
Yum Oh! A great alternative to a tuna sandwich. I did change it a bit. I used Veri Veri Teriyaki which is thick with a great flavor not too strong. I also added about 2T of Wasabi paste. I thought this went better with tuna than Tabasco or Mexican hot sauce. The bread crumbs I used were Italian. VERY GOOD- WILL MAKE AGAIN!
This was pretty good. I was looking for something more interesting to do with some tuna I had gotten on sale and saw this recipe. I didn't have any teriyaki sauce so I substituted equal parts of barbecue sauce, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce to equal 1/4 of a cup. I also accidentally added the yolk of the egg, but I'm not worried about cholesterol or calories so I figured it couldn't hurt.
It turned out pretty well, although I had trouble keeping it all in one piece in the pan, and had to keep squishing it back together. It was soft and moist, not dry, but had a similar texture to my mom's salmon patties, only better. It tasted nothing like beef but I don't mind at all.
I tried these on the grill and they came out great! Plump and juicy, with no fishy taste. I even topped them with cheese, and they still tasted very much like regular burgers, so they'd be perfect if you're trying to cut out red meat or lower cholesterol. I used the thick, sweet teriyaki sauce instead of the watery "and marinade" type, and I think that made all the difference as far as saltiness, but it's still a good idea to start out with less and add more to taste.
I wouldn't say this tastes anything like real beef but it did turn out really good. I did add the entire egg which held the patty together really well. I also didn't add teriyaki sauce at all, instead I added some sweet pickle relish, garlic powder, black pepper and lots of dill. Before I pan-fried them I coated them with bread crumbs so they were nice and crispy. I agree with another user that these would be great served on salad.
This was pretty good. I love tuna and can eat it everyday so I like to find different ways to make it. I will make this again but I will cut back on the teriyaki sauce a little bit. Although I like teriyaki sauce, I thought it was a little overpowering for my taste.
After reading the reviews, I chose to use a teriyaki sauce that was thicker and only used 1/4c of it with a doubled recipe. These make a great cheaper and tasty alternative to turkey burgers.
This was a waste of good tuna. I followed the recipe exactly and it was too dry, too salty, but otherwise tasted like cardboard. Sorry!
this is a great way to do something different with tuna. next time i make it i will season more to suit my taste.
