Tuna Cakes

I am always looking for something different to make for lunch when Allan comes home from school.  And these really simple little tuna cakes seemed like a good change from soup and sandwiches.

These tuna cakes were really simple to put together and made a great lunch with a little orzo and tomato sauce.

Tuna Cakes

Makes 4 patties

  • 1 egg
  • 2 cans water packed flaked tuna, drained well
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp red chili paste
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ cup large flaked oats
  • About a tsp olive oil, additional for cooking

Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl, and then make four balls. Place these balls on a baking pan lined with wax paper, and then flatten to about a half inch thickness. If you have the time, chill the patties in the fridge for about an hour so that they stay together better when you cook them.

In a skillet, lightly fry the patties in oil for about 4 minutes per side
