    Take a non-stick skillet and spray some cooking oil on it. Then, place the tuna patties in the skillet and fry them on a medium-heat stove. You have to fry them for around 3 to 4 minutes from both sides. Make sure that you turn the side at the right time, otherwise the patty will be overcooked which can affect the overall taste. Furthermore, turn the side of the patty carefully so as to keep its shape firm and to avoid splashing any oil.

    Take the patties out and put them on a couple of paper towels to soak up all of the excess oil. Meanwhile, place some tomato slices on the buns and put one patty on each of them. Serve the burgers with cold drinks.
