I cannot say enough good things about these tuna patties! I made this exactly as posted, using whole wheat breadcrumbs, and about 2 t. of celery salt. The sambal oelek was fantastic! I ended up getting 10 patties out of this (I guess I like them a bit smaller). As suggested, I ate mine (sans bun) with a pickled jalapeno, which I loved. I had no trouble with texture, and they held together well. I will definitely be making these often!
Wow! What a different tasting tuna patty! I cut this down for 1 can of tuna, and reduced the other ingredients accordingly. I really enjoyed the heat in these! These are quick and easy to make. They are very "loose", I scooped them up with a spatula and finished shaping them up in the skillet. I recommend making smaller rather than larger patties to make them easier to flip. Mine turned out wonderfully golden brown on the outside and rich and creamy on the inside. I don't think they taste like crab cakes, but they are wonderful! I served with a side of remoulade sauce, mashed potatoes, squash and purple hull peas. Great dinner!! Thanks for sharing! Made for Rookie tag game.
Very tasty. I used crushed rice crackers to make it gluten free, and chili paste in a tube. Sized it down for one can of tuna; made 2 patties. Would be good with cheese on it too, like a tuna melt. Made for Best of 2014 game.
I didn't have a problem with these holding together. I used sweet chili sauce and added some minced garlic. I thought these we just ok until I added mustard then great - they just needed a bit of a vinegar flavor, well or I did.
These turned out great! Fast and easy to make with lots of kick. I added some minced green onion and an egg after reading that they didn't want to hold together. I still had trouble getting them to stay in a patty shape, so I would add an egg and less mayo next time. Also, they were a little bit too salty, I think that came from the chili paste I used. I think this mixture would be great as a sushi roll filling. And I like your idea of using these for sandwiches. Thanks for posting the recipe!
These are spicy little patties! I intended to use one can of tuna, but then realized that my cans were 7 ounces. I also feel the brand I use is more packed with meat than others. So I used half the remaining ingredient quantities. Easy to make, although mine needed a bit more binder, and I think an egg might work better as a binder. But the flavor was great. Sambal oelek is quite spicy, so if you are not familiar with it, you might want to use a bit less first time out.
