Tuna Fish Patties


These tuna fish patties are very easy and quick to be prepared as we ca use potatoes flakes; if you have boiled potatoes, you may also mash them with a fork and add only little milk to make this more humid.

I have served them on a bed of rocket (aragula) salad and cherry tomatoes. As sauce, I recommend my mint and dill yogurt sauce as this fits perfectly with both patties and salad; however, I made a little change to the sauce, Instead of lemon juice, I used white balsamic vinegar, but both lemon and vinegar goes well.

The quantity depends on the size, in my case a made a dozen, the correct quantity for one skillet of 28 cm of diameter.

Note: these patties may be prepared in advance and used for a picnic (ready cooked) or for a party.
