Lighter than a regular burger, these Juicy Stovetop Tuna Burgers are a great alternative for when you're craving a burger but want a lighter meal option. Doctors recommend eating fish once or twice a week and tuna is by far the easiest (and cheapest) way to do so.

Tuna burgers

 12 oz canned tuna
  cup breadcrumbs
 2 tsp lemon juice
 2 tbsp onion, chopped
 2 tsp horseradish mustard (if you can't find this, dijon mustard works well too)
 1 tsp dry parsley
 ½ tsp hot sauce
 1 egg
 1 potato, cooked, peeled, chopped
 2 tbsp olive oil
 1 tsp butter
 4 buns
For the yogurt coleslaw:
 14 oz coleslaw mix
 ½ cup greek yogurt
 2 tbsp relish
 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
 1 tbsp capers, chopped
 1 tsp coarse-grained mustard

First, drain the tuna and put it into a bowl.


Add the lemon juice, mustard, onion, breadcrumbs, parsley, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix everything to combine. Stir in the potato and egg.


When combined, form into 4 balls and flatten into patties. Put them in the refrigerator until needed.


Meanwhile, to make the yogurt coleslaw, mix all of the ingredients except the coleslaw mix. Then add the coleslaw mix and stir until everything is well coated. When combined, season with salt and pepper.


Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, and melt the butter with olive oil. When melted, add the patties to the pan, and cook 4 minutes per side, or until some color appears on both sides. Remove it from the pan and place it onto the bun, top with the yogurt coleslaw and serve.
