Recipe: Tuna Burgers

Shawn found this recipe for a tuna burger that can substitute any burger meat!  And they taste fantastic!  Having tuna as the protein base will help add some Omega-3s to your diet. And it gives tons of protein as well. You can reduce the amount of mayonnaise if you want to reduce the fat, but healthy fats are good for you (just don't use light mayo as it has added sugar). Enjoy! :)
