Sizzling Summertime Sandwich: Grilled Tuna Burgers with Wasabi Slaw

Eat burgers and enjoy the benefits of seafood! IMG_2057Disclosure: I received free samples from Bumble Bee® Seafoods that are mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Bumble Bee Seafoods and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

I’ve faced my share of challenges as a mother. One of  them was getting my family to eat  fish.  Because I ‘m a fish lover and an advocate of  a diet rich in seafood, it’s easy for me to meet  the recommended 8 to 12 ounces of fish per week. But for the rest of my family, not so much. Nevertheless,  I have found a way to get them to meet recommendations. What’s my secret? Bumble Bee®  Prime Filet® Solid White Albacore in water and Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in water.

Now admittedly, I didn’t win them over with the nutritional benefits…

• high quality protein

• free from saturated fat

• high in selenium and niacin

• source of  omega-3 fatty acids

• source of vit B6 and B10

…which BTW, I can spit out faster than you can say.. no thank you. Rather, I won them over with delicious meals prepared with Bumble Bee ® canned tuna like my Salad Nicoise 2.0 and these …
