Shavuos is usually associated with heavier dairy meals, which might taste really good on the spot, doesn’t feel so good later.
This is why I usually skip the heavy dairy and opt to make lighter options like these Tuna Patties.
They’re super easy to make and make an awesome lunch or supper any day of the week. And if your really in the mood for your dairy, after the patties are made melt cheese on top. You can do this either in the pan – put cheese on top of the patties and put a cover on the pan to help the cheese melt, or you can bake them in the oven to get a crispy cheese top.
There is also an option to add vegetables into the patties, which I highly suggest, as it adds in vegetables to your meal and a good crispiness as well.
Either way, with or without cheese these are an awesome addition to any menu you are making.
Yield: about 8 Patties
2 Cans of Tuna, drained
1/2 C. flour, Matzah Meal or gluten free panko crumbs
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 small zucchini, or 1/2 a med. zucchini, shredded (optional)
2 Tbsp Red Pepper (diced)
Mix all the ingredients together to combine. Spray a frying pan with Pam or some other oil spray, and heat the pan over a medium flame. Form the tuna batter into patties. Pan fry for about 4 minutes on each side, or until browned.
