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
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.
