Not bad didn't care for the pickles. It may have been better had I used relish.

Such a quick and easy recipe and as an added bonus we all loved them! I didnt use the pepper sauce but did add a little curry powder instead and they turned out fantastic. I especially loved flavour of the dill in them. I will be making these again quite soon I think. Thanks Caroline.......great recipe!

This recipe was easy & quick to make. I did have to add extra breadcrumbs to mine but I think it is because I didn't drain the tuna well enough. I didn't add the pickles because DH wont eat them. I might add a little more paprika or hot sauce next time to spice it up a bit more but otherwise good.
