I got this recipe from Greenseas Tuna. DS hates tuna and the the rest of us love tuna patties so its only when DS is not home that I can make anything with tuna in it. This recipe is a different version of making tuna patties and even though they are a little different to the normal tuna patties, they are delicious especially served with a nice side salad! The recipe calls for frying the patties but I cooked mine in the oven and they were fantastic!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the cooled mashed potato, drained tuna, breadcrumbs, egg, half the coriander and spices. Mix together well.
  2. Form into 8 patties and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat, cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden.
  4. Combine yoghurt, lemon rind and remaining coriander in a small bowl, mixing well.
  5. Serve the patties with yoghurt sauce and a nice crisp salad.

I made these for my husband who loves both tuna and potatoes, so where can you go wrong! Like Tisme, I baked them in the oven, so perhaps they might have had a crisper crust if pan-fried, but DH was very happy with them like this, he enjoyed them with salads for his lunch! Thank you Tis, a great success, made for ZWT9, Pink Panthers!

These had really mixed reviews at our house. DH and DS1 enjoyed them and thought they were a nice change of pace, DD1, DD2, and I found something very off-putting about the spice combination. Maybe it was the combination of cinnamon and coriander? Who knows. I added salt based on previous reviews and DH added more at the table. Using a 1/3 c measuring cup as a scoop I got 11 patties.

These were a nice twist on tuna patties, and would be great with just a few adjustments for personal taste. I did find the patties rather dry, and they really could use some salt mixed in and fresh pepper mixed in. I wanted to take these to work for lunch, so I made 5 from the mixture (one for each day of the work week). They were a good size, so I cooked them a bit longer. I also probably could have added some more oil to the pan. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
