Tasty Tuna Patties

Tuna Patties

Pinit

In my house growing up, we NEVER ate salmon patties like some of my friends did, mainly because it just didn’t appeal to us.  We never really ate fish, period.  Only in my adulthood did I begin to appreciate seafood, and while Mister Spice eats tuna nearly everyday for lunch, I’ve yet to prepare anything but a tuna steak (which we loved, by the way).  But tuna is one of the few fish I can tolerate, and it’s just so good for you, so I’ve been trying to find ways to fix it.  These tuna patties are simple, fast, and tasty, and could even be put on a bun and served as a tuna burger.

Recipe Ingredients

  • about 15 oz of tuna packed in water
  • 1 cup white bread, torn into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 raw egg
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Tuna Patties

Mix all ingredients except for butter, olive oil, and egg in a bowl.  Give the mixture a taste and add more seasonings if necessary before adding egg.  Mix thoroughly.

In a non-stick skillet, heat oil and butter on medium heat.

Form mixture into patties; I chose to make four pretty thick patties (actually, I made five but the fifth didn’t make it to the photo).  Place on skillet and cook, on medium to medium-high, for about 3-4 minutes per side.

These patties were really wanting to fall apart, so in the future I might add some more egg and/or bread.  I squirted some ketchup on mine and loved every bite!  Perfect balance of flavors, and I loved the crisp on the outside with the soft inside.  I will definitely be making these again!  I give these 5/5 herbs.
