These tasty, quick and healthy skillet tuna burgers are the perfect busy weeknight supper option. They freeze well too!
My kids and I love a good burger, but sometimes you don’t have ground meat or fresh fish on hand. Enter: these delicious, easy and budget-friendly tuna burgers! Tuna is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which is important for brain, nerve and eye development in kids. To reach their recommended needs per week, experts recommend 2-3 servings of omega-3-rich fish per week. We usually make these burgers, or my salmon skillet burgers, as well as either order sushi or make this homemade tuna noodle casserole (which makes great leftovers too!).
These tuna burgers are perfect for crazy busy weeknights when you just need something fast and simple. No thawing meat or labour-intensive instructions here – just a few staple ingredients, a bowl, a skillet and you’re good to go! We pair these with fruit salad or a garden salad. If we’re in a big rush, it’s raw veggies and hummus!
You can batch cook these and store in the freezer (separated with wax or parchment paper) to warm up for school lunches or fast leftovers. I often top a salad with a leftover tuna burger for my lunch!
