Spicy tuna burger recipe, a different way to enjoy fish

When I read recipes or reports with tips for children to eat fish, I am surprised because at least in my family all the little ones have enjoyed it since childhood, in all its forms. Now that I live as a couple, fish is still welcome at my table, although it is true that blue makes it a little less funny. But a recipe something special how are you spicy tuna burgers They are much better received.

As with "normal" hamburgers, the better the quality of the raw material, the richer they will come out, although in this case I prefer to reserve the pieces of good tuna or nice fresh seasonal for more natural preparations. Frozen tuna is also going very well for recipes like this and we can always have one or two pieces at hand.
