Recipe Collection: Tuna Patties
1 can albacore tuna in water
1/2 onion chopped
1 small clove garlic chopped (or a dash of garlic powder - probably 1/8 - 1/4 tsp)
1/4 tsp thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg or 1 egg's worth of eggbeaters
2 - 3 tsp coconut oil
Drain and flake the tuna in a bowl. Add onions, garlic and seasonings. Mix well. Mix in egg (the recipe actually called for 2 eggs - I used just 1 and it was fine. I would have used Eggbeaters if I had some on hand). Melt coconut oil in frying pan, medium high heat. Drop spoonfuls of tuna mixture in patty form into hot oil. This should make about 4 patties. Flatten with a spatula and cook for 3-4 minutes per side. When browned, remove from pan, put on paper towels to drain.
The original recipe called also for adding 12 chopped pecans.
