Lemon Garlic Tuna Patties



2 5 oz. cans of tuna in water- well drained

3 garlic cloves grated

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 large egg

1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons mayo

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/3 teaspoon dried dill

4 tablespoons panko

3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons olive oil divided


Start by draining canned tuna from water.

Next, combine it with garlic, onion, salt and pepper, lemon juice and zest, egg, breadcrumbs, mayo, 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese and dried parsley. Mix well.

Combine remaining breadcrumbs and grated cheese in a shallow dish. Scoop 1/4 cup of tuna mixture, form into a patty and lightly coat with breading mixture.

Fry patties in pan with oil, until nicely browned on each side. Remove from pan and let rest for 5 minutes. 


  1. These look good Linda. I make salmon patties which everyone loves. Will have to try these out.

    1. Something different, meat has gotten so expensive.
