Grilled Tuna Burger


Bread or burgers for the matter have never been my kind of food. But I suppose when its the food for the other half, I do try to put up (lamb burgerdory fish sandwich, panini Malaysian style and Mushroom Burger). Unlike the typical Malaysian meal with rice and side dishes, bread and burgers are easier to assemble with various types of filling./stuffing for a veg or non-veg one dish meal. So I shouldn't take it on as a difficult thing to do. Similarly, grilled mint scented tuna patties, fresh vegetables and sauces were filled into toasted bread slices for this burger.


Ingredients (makes two patties)
I small can of tuna - drain off the water/oil
3-4 sprigs of mint leaves - chop the leaves.
1 egg
1 tsp cornflour 
Pepper and salt to taste
Oil (if needed for frying/grilling)
To assemble
Buns or bread slices - grilled or toasted
Salad leaves
Cucumber slices
Chilli sauce
Yellow mustard sauce

Method
Combine the ingredients for the tuna (except oil) and shape into flat patties.
Pan fry or grill the patties.
Place patties on bun/bread, top with cucumber and salad leaves.
Drizzle sauce and another slice of bread on top.
