I crave Tuna Patties at times and this is how I make them. Sure hit the spot! I double my Lemon-Dill Sauce as I like lots of it! This is easy, so after work, its great for a tasty meal. I made this with asparagus and use the sauce on it too! A nice change and perfect summer dish! And my cats love these :)
Make the Lemon-Dill Sauce first by just mixing the ingredients together and keep in the fridge until needed. Double recipe if you like a good amount, like me.
Beat the eggs and mix the lemon juice in a medium bowl. Stir in the parmesan cheese and the 3/4 cup bread crumbs. Fold in the tuna and onions and mix well. Add the pepper and old bay seasonings.
Shape mixture into round 1 inch thick patties, like you would hamburger patties. I was able to make six patties. Put the other 1/2 cup of bread crumbs in a paper plate and hold the patties carefully and sprinkle the breadcrumbs on both sides to dust them and carefully shake access off.
When all are ready to cook, heat about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a fry pan on stove, medium heat until it is good and hot but not smoking. Add three patties at a time and fry about 4-5 minutes on each side. Add a little more veg oil when adding the second batch. The time it cooks depends on how thick your patties are. They should be golden brown.
Serve with the lemon-dill sauce or tarter sauce.
These may be small, but re filling. Can serve two patties each for three or one patty for six if doing a brunch.
