Preparation:

Step 1

Combine tuna, eggs, bread crumbs, pineapple, onion, celery, red bell pepper, yogurt, chili sauce, dill, lime zest and juice, salt, pepper, hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well and shape into 6 patties (mixture will be very soft and delicate). Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make the patties easier to handle.

Step 2

Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray; fry tuna patties for about 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until cooked to medium (or your taste). These are fragile, so be careful when turning them.

Step 3

Serve on buns with tomato slices and lettuce. Top with tzatziki, for a bold twist fold 1/2 cup chopped pineapple into tzatziki.
