Tuna Patties

Just like salmon patties, you can use canned tuna to make tuna patties.  If you’d like to serve them on a bun as a sandwich make them a larger, making two patties from one can, rather than four.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4 patties, 2 people


1 6-oz can of tuna

¼ cup mayonnaise

¼ cup wheat germ, or bread crumbs

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (or yellow mustard)

1 lemon – zest and juice

1 tablespoon minced chives

1 tablespoon minced tarragon

1 shallot, finely diced

1 egg

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix together all ingredients listed above.  Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop out four portions and shape into patties.  Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with a side of barley and broccoli poppers for a complete meal!

If you made extras, wrap the baked patties in plastic wrap and put them in a sealed freezer bag.  Reheat them in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 15-20 minutes.
