Every time I go to the grocery store I buy at least 4 cans of tuna (solid or chunk). I hardly use them but I keep buying as if I’m preparing for some disaster where loads of canned goods are needed. Recently, I looked into my pantry and realized that I NEED to stop buying tuna. They are just accumulating. So in an effort to get rid of some of the cans of tuna I have stockpiled, I decided to make these tuna-potato patties. They’re simple, very delicious, perfect for a snack or even entree.
2 cans solid albacore tuna packed in oil
a small handful parsley
salt & lots of freshly ground black pepper
oil for frying
1. Flake the tuna and mix it and the parsley with the mashed potatoes. Add all other ingredients one at a time and mix well
2. Set aside for 15 minutes for flavors to meld. Then form patties.
3. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and pour in oil to about a 1cm depth. Fry the cakes in batches (don’t overcrowd the pan) for a couple minutes on each side, until they’re golden brown.
4. Serve with cocktail sauce or tartar sauce or both
Bye For Now…..
