Tuna Burgers With Roasted Pepper Tartar Sauce: the perfect healthy quick weeknight dinner idea for the whole family. Low fat, tasty and easy to make
Tuna Burgers With Roasted Pepper Tartar Sauce
If you’ve never had a tuna burger before, you’re going to flip over this one. The patties are delicious, the sauce is amazing and each bite tastes better than the other. I tell you, I didn’t know how this combination was going to turn out until I literally took a bite. I was like yumm, this is working, let me take another bite.. and that’s how this burger only lasted about 2 minutes. My husband came home for lunch and I quickly started to make the other 3 patties. He inhaled them of course. The magic is the combination of flavors and textures.
If I bottle this Roasted Pepper Tartar sauce, what should I name it? The description seems rather long. Maybe secret Tartar sauce? Since this one is not as tangy as the regular one, my kids absolutely loved it. And they ate the tuna burgers without even knowing they were eating tuna. So this dish is definitely a win and will become a weekly staple in my home.
If you’re watching your carbs, just opt for a lettuce bun or a thinner whole wheat pita. My kids wouldn’t go for that so I went with the sesame top. For these Tuna Burgers I used Bumble Bee® Albacore products because they are an easy and a delicious way to add a variety of nutrients to your diet including lean protein, healthy fat, and important vitamins and minerals.
Since my husband trains for triathlons, he’s always looking for food that has lot’s of low fat protein. Chicken and fish are his favorite ones.
