Ingredients for Crispy and Delicious Keto Tuna Burgers
Crispy tuna burgers
- 1¼ lbs canned tuna in water, drained
- ¾ cup mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp onion powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- 3 tbsp olive oil, divided, for frying
- 2 (8 oz.) tomatoes, thinly sliced
- 3 oz. (1½ cups) leafy greens or lettuce
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise
How to prepare Crispy and Delicious Keto Tuna Burgers
Mix the ingredients together (minus the oil) in a medium-sized bowl. Shape the mixture into small burgers, about 2 inches (5 cm) wide and 0.4 inch (1 cm) thick.
Pan-fry the burgers in batches. Add enough oil to coat the base of a large frying pan. Once the oil becomes hot over medium heat, place the tuna patties in the pan, lightly pressing the surfaces with a spatula. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and crispy.
To serve, add a few lettuce leaves to each plate, and top each leaf with a tuna burger, tomato slice, and a dollop of mayonnaise (3 burgers, per portion). Salt and pepper to taste.
To make the burgers extra crispy, add 1.5 cup (170 g) of shredded cheese to the tuna burger mix, and reduce the mayonnaise to 5 tbsp for 4 servings.
