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!
- 2 medium potatoes, boiled, mashed and slightly cooled
- 425 g tuna in water, drained
- 1⁄2 cup fresh breadcrumb
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1⁄2 cup fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup natural yoghurt
- 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
- Combine the cooled mashed potato, drained tuna, breadcrumbs, egg, half the coriander and spices. Mix together well.
- Form into 8 patties and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
- Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat, cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden.
- Combine yoghurt, lemon rind and remaining coriander in a small bowl, mixing well.
- 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.
