I love to make a large batch of these burgers and freeze the leftovers for quick lunches at the house or to go into a lunchbox. You can substitute whatever veggies you have on hand, but I love the flavor of the celery and carrot. We don’t eat many buns around my house, so my favorite way to serve a patty is over some greens and a large dollop of stone ground mustard.

Pan Seared Tuna Burgers
-4 cans tuna or salmon (in water)
-1 egg
-1/4 cup ground flax or coarsely chopped oats
-1 tablespoon stone ground or Dijon mustard
-2 teaspoons old bay seasoning
-1/3 cup finely chopped celery and carrot
-1/4 cup loosely packed parsley, chopped

Beat egg in a large bowl. Drain fish and add to bowl along with all other ingredients. Stir until thoroughly combined. Make into 3-4 inch patties. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and allow to get hot. Sear each patty for about 4-5 minutes a side. Serve warm with desired garnishes. Makes about 6 burgers.
