Tuna Burgers Category: Other Foodiness, Recipes

This evening I made Tuna Burgers. You may remember I did make them last year, adapting a Simon Rimmer recipe for Salmon burgers. Anyway when I went to retrieve the recipe it was not on my blog so here goes – a slightly further adapted recipe:

250g – 300g Tuna Steaks
2 slices brown bread, crusts off (& magimixed into bread crumbs)
1/2 egg white
1 shallot or small chunk of red onion
Tablespoon dill
Salt & Pepper

1. Put bread into magimix & made breadcrumbs
2. Add red onion, and dill & blitz
3. Season
4. Add tuna (cut into chunks) & egg white – pulse magimix so small pieces of tuna remain

Turn the mixture out & shape into 2 ‘burgers’ – cover them up and pop them in the fridge for 1/2 hour

Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan and lightly fry for around 3 or 4 minutes (depending on the thickness) on either side until cooked through in the middle

We served this with some organic mayonnaise flavoured with a little garlic, a squeeze of lemon juice & touch more dill.

We also had some homemade chips courtesy of ‘Cook with Gordon‘ –
2 Desiree potatoes scrubbed (skin left on) cut into eighths & parboiled for 3 minutes. Season, add a touch of olive oil & chilli flakes & pop on a hot baking tray in the oven set to 200°c for around 40 minutes until crisp.

Spicy Lentil Bake Category: Recipes

This recipe was on Something For The Weekend the weekend before last & you may have noticed I’ve been meaning to make it for about a week now.

In the pan we have some colourful carrot, onion, celery & pepper…

Throw in some lentils, stock & a few more bits & bob and after 20 mins add an egg or two…


Served with pita bread (as we didn’t have naans) & some yoghurt with cucumber.

It turned out ok, I’d like to try it again but remember to wash & drain the lentils & maybe cook them until they are a bit softer…
