Tuna Patties

So I really wanted to make salmon patties but I still have so many cans of tuna (Thanks Costco) so I decided to experiment with some Tuna Patties.  These are pretty easy and DO NOT have the tuna taste/smell that so many people despise.  So, if you are not a fan of tuna because you can’t stand the smell, have someone cook these for you, I bet you will enjoy them! I planned on only eating two, and was completely full after two, but I ended up eating all four.  Oops…they were that good!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 can of tuna
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp aioli garlic mustard sauce (you could probably use regular mustard)
  • salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  1. Drain tuna (reserve a few tbsp of liquid) and put tuna into large bowl
  2. Add onion, lime juice, mustard sauce, salt, pepper and mix
  3. Add eggs and mix
  4. Add some liquid from tuna can if necessary (you do not want it to be watery but it needs a little moisture)
  5. Add panko bread crumbs, about 1/4 cup at a time, you want them to absorb all the moisture
  6. I used about 3/4 cup of Panko
  7. Then seperate tuna mixture into 4 patties.  Make sure they are packed nice and tight

You can refrigerate the patties for about 30 minutes before cooking, because then they will hold better for cooking but I couldn’t wait so I just put some olive oil in a pan and fried those babies up.  About 4-6 minutes on each side and served them with some lettuce and some of the mustard sauce on top. 

Wine Pairing:  Since this meal is fairly light but still has some strong flavors because they are fried and have the mustard sauce on top, I would suggest a medium bodied Sauvignon Blanc with some grassy notes or a White Burgundy (Chardonnay).
