As I was doing my grocery shopping yesterday, I come across a great sale on Filipino own Century tuna. At .99cents, I just had to buy tons of them. This recipe has been develop by my love for tuna, which I can eat 24/7.
Tuna in cans are a staple in every pinoy's table especially when your in a tight budget. It is usually serve straight from the can with a steaming bowl of rice, bagoong (shrimp paste) and dahong kamote ( boiled yam leaves).
Feel free to experiment with your burger filling, I usually use anything that comes in handy from my fridge. The taste, I guarantee will always comes out tasty.
3cans of regular Tuna (in water or oil)
