California Tuna Burgers

These California Tuna Burgers are easy to throw together and a great way to get lots of protein and few calories. This Safe Catch Tuna is the lowest mercury tuna you can find - perfect for athletes, kids and women who are pregnant!

Oh for the love of TUNA!   I have a big place in my heart for this stuff.  Tuna melts have always been on my top favorite foods ever list and I always have cans of tuna stacked in my pantry for a quick high protein snack or meal.  

When I was at the IDEA World Fitness Expo last month I was meandering down the expo aisles with Lindsey from nourish move love, and we stumbled upon a new tuna company called Safe Catch.  I was intrigued by the delicious samples but even more by the clean ingredient list!  When I did the Whole30 in January I was blown away by the fact that there were so many additives in a simple can of tuna.  So when I saw that this tuna was sustainably caught, non-gmo, mercury tested, and only contained tuna and salt – I was convinced!  Oh and when I say mercury tested, I should mention that Safe Catch Elite products have the LOWEST Mercury level of any brand.  

I am so excited to now be working with Safe Catch to bring you some tunalicious (yes that’s a word) recipes in the next few months!  Today: I have burgers on the brain.  Mixing this tuna up with some spices, an egg and some almond flour is all you have to do to create a protein packed patty you will love!!  I served these with my Clean Thousand Island Sauce, caramelized onions, avocado and tomato, all wrapped up in lettuce!  If you aren’t convinced, maybe a little discount would help you?  Head over to their site HERE and use the code ‘littlebitsof10’ for 10% off your order!

    I am on day 10 of my Whole30 and totally on the struggle bus. Nothing sounded good in my kitchen. I have a stack of safecatch tuna and remembered this recipe and decided to give it a try because I had all the ingredients on hand. OMG. It is sooooo good. And I topped it with your clean thousand island. Nothing else. It was amazing! It tasted like a splurge meal! I am so impressed and shocked by how good this is because I’m not even a huge canned tuna fan. Thank you for this recipe and the yummy clean thousand island sauce. You rock!

    Hello! Found you on instrgram by random and I’m over the moon! I’m just learning to cook and eat clean so your blog is a gen! Quick question: would coconut flour be an okay substitute for almond flour in this recipe? Oops I have another question: where in the world did you find sugar free , dye free pickles? I’m having such a hard time. I want to make the 1000 island dressing too

      Hello! Thank you so much!! Glad you found me! You can sub coconut flour but reduce the amount – I would do 1 -2 Tablespoons or just until they can be formed into patties. It just absorbs more liquid than almond flour! And for the pickles you can find some at trader joe’s but I have found them at a larger grocery store too you just need to read all the labels! Good luck!!

  1. […] California Tuna Burgers with Clean Thousand Island Sauce After debating whether or not I wanted to spend the money on Safe Catch tuna, I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did; it is the best tuna I have ever had! The junk we have tried in the past cannot even compare! I believe they have a 10% off coupon available for your first order, or you can get the coupon code listed in Kelsey’s recipe that I have linked above. Kyle and I both loved this recipe so much! The burgers are so quick and easy to throw together – such an awesome meal for a busy weeknight (or for anyone with a needy, fussy, teething baby demanding to be held)! The sauce is fantastic – tastes just like In-N-Out’s sauce, without the sugar! You could put the sauce on regular burgers, too – or make ‘animal style’ fries! The possibilities are endless. […]
