Tuna Burgers (to go with those fries)

I had planned on making salmon burgers to go with my homemade french fries for Saturday evening supper but the pantry wasn't giving out any canned salmon this evening so I went with tuna.  The recipe is as follows:

1 can of solid white tuna, lightly drained and flaked with a fork
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons mayo
1/3rd cup of breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon of capers
Dash of salt
Dash of seafood seasoning
1 small leek, minced
1/4 red pepper, minced
1 stalk celery, minced.
Olive oil

In a saute pan, heated with a tablespoon of olive oil, sweat the vegetables until softened.  Leave aside until  cool.  Beat egg for a minute and add the drained tuna.  Flake tuna in the egg. and add breadcrumbs, mayo, capers, cooled vegetables and seasonings. Blend together but don't overmix.  Form into two or four patties and place in the fridge for about 10 minutes.  Heat another tablespoon or two of oil in the pan.  Place the tuna patties in and fry  the smaller patties for 2-4 minutes on each side.  Larger ones will take 4-6 minutes until golden brown.  Remove to a paper towel and plate up with fries.  Enjoy with tartar sauce.
