Hunger Challenge Dinner: Tuna Burgers

March 24, 2011

Tuna burgers

The American Heart Association recommends that we consume fish twice a week, and though the fish counter is not always budget-friendly, canned tuna certainly is. These burgers are reminiscent of plump, savory crab cakes, with bright notes of lemon and fresh parsley. And the best part: each one only costs $1.56!
