Want a healthy alternative to greasy hamburgers? Try tuna patties! Making a tuna patty is quick, cheap, and easy—just the way we like it. And no, this doesn't end up tasting like a weird fishy block of dryness. It's more like a flavorful, crispy fish burger you'd shell out $15 for at some snooty gastropub. Consider its canned origins our little secret.


  • 4 can (12.5 oz), drained tuna, canned in water
  • 1 cup whole-wheat panko bread crumbs
  • 4 tbsp fat-free mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup, chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder

  3. Place patties on the skillet and cook until browned and crispy, about 5 minutes per side.
