Today I said on my Happening Now in the sidebar section that
I was making tuna cakes for dinner.
Mr. or Miss Anonymous (whoever you are!) asked if I would
post a recipe. So..here we go!
They are like crab cakes, except made with tuna.
I don't really have a recipe but I'll tell you how I do it.
Amounts are just a guess since I just throw them together.
4 cans of white albacore tuna in water
1 egg, beaten
salt and pepper
a drizzle of olive oil
several handfuls of seasoned bread crumbs
panko bread crumbs for a coating
Drain the cans of tuna and mix together with all
the ingredients except the panko.
Form into patties. I made 6 patties from this amount.
Press both sides into some of the panko bread crumbs
and lay into skillet. Skillet should be preheated to medium
high heat and have a little butter and olive oil in it.
Brown well on the bottom, then carefully turn with a
spatula and brown the other side.
Serve with tarter sauce.
(I just mix mayo, sweet pickle relish and cocktail sauce)
Tonight I served these with Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts
