Recipe: Homemade Tuna Burgers with Potato Wedges

Like your burgers? Well these burgers are a little bit different. A cross between a fishcake and a burger patty I suppose! Very yummy though. The spiced herby wedges and spicy relish are great accompaniments to the tuna as well. 

Homemade Tuna Burgers with Potato Wedges (serves 4)

1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 red pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 x 160g Princes tinned tuna chunks in sunflower oil, drained
90g white bread, blitzed into breadcrumbs
1 medium egg
30g grated parmesan
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
4 x burger buns

1.3kg potatoes, sliced into thin wedges
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp mixed herbs
Salt pepper and sugar
3 tbsp olive oil

2 tomatoes, finely chopped
½ cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp brown sauce
2 tbsp tomato passata
Splash hot sauce (optional)
Salt sugar and pepper

1)      Preheat oven to 180C. Parboil the potato wedges in boiling water for 5 minutes, drain, and add to a roasting tin. Mix with all the other wedges ingredients and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
2)      Meanwhile, fry the onion and pepper in 1 tbsp olive for 6 minutes, until softened. Transfer this to a mixing bowl and set aside. Put the 2 tins of tuna and an egg into a food processor, and blitz until smooth.
3)      Mix the tuna mixture with the onion and pepper mix, breadcrumbs, parmesan and some salt and pepper. Once mixed, form into 4 equal sized burgers. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan, and fry the burgers 5 minutes each side (on a medium high heat).
4)      Mix together all the relish ingredients and season to taste. Slice the burgers, place the burgers in the bun, and serve with the relish and wedges. Delicious!!
