Tuna Patties #FishFridayFoodies

Would you like to join Fish Friday Foodies?  We post and share new seafood/fish recipes on the third Friday of the month.  To join our group please email Wendy at wendyklik1517@gmail.com. Visit our Facebook page and Pinterest page for more wonderful fish and seafood recipe ideas.

This month our hosts are Sid and Wendy! Sid suggested that we "Have some fun with seafood, use the frozen cooked shrimp, the salmon or tuna in a pouch or the tinned fish or other seafood."

This dish is incredibly quick, simple, and delicious (if you like canned tuna)! I happen to be a huge tuna fan and always have a stack of cans in my pantry. If you're ever pressed for time and want to whip up something tasty and easy, use a couple cans of tuna and you'll have a delicious patty in no time that you can serve a number of different ways. Add them to buns with your favorite toppings for sandwiches, serve them alongside a fresh salad, or make smaller versions of them and serve them as appetizers with tartar sauce on the side. You can start by mixing just the tuna with all the seasoning ingredients (leaving the eggs for last), and taste them so that you can adjust the flavor without ingesting raw egg if that's a concern. You can also take a small piece of the mixture and cook it before moving forward with shaping, taste that piece, adjust the seasonings and proceed.

There are a lot of great flavor elements in this little patty, but the quantities are small so the flavor still comes out pretty mild. If you're looking for a stronger flavor increase quantities as you like!

Tuna Patties

2 eggs
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 tsp old bay seasoning
2 5-ounce cans tuna in water, drained
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 TBS finely diced celery
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp dried dill
1-2 TBS vegetable oil

  1. Combine all ingredients except the oil in a medium bowl and stir gently until fully and evenly combined. Shape into 4 patties.
  2. Heat 1/2 TBS oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, gently lay a couple patties (don't over crowd, add as many patties as comfortably fit with room to flip them). 
  3. Cook them for about 3-5 minutes per side until golden brown, adjusting the heat as needed if they're cooking too quickly.
  4. Add additional oil if needed and repeat with any remaining patties.
  5. Serve hot and enjoy!

  1. I love tuna, as does the Teen. I have never had tuna patties but I think I need to rectify that.

    1. They're so easy and tasty! I love making sandwiches with them!

  3. I make patties like yours with all sort of canned fish, Rebekah, but my favorites are definitely tuna. Your spice combo sounds delightful.

  4. This sounds delicious, love the spices used to make the patties!
