GF Thai Tuna Patties

What fun it was to make this simultaneously with the daughter long distance over the phone last night.  We joked, laughed and cooked together, her modifying the crumbs to whatever she could find in a newlywed cupboard.  Once again, the guys liked it so much they fought over the last burger.  Truly delish!

My boys loved this recipe! Shock and awe! I called it a tuna burger... that might be why.


1 lb of Ahi Tuna flaked (or you could do like me and open three (5 oz.) cans of Starkist)
1/2 cup bread or cracker crumbs (YAY someplace to use all those stale loaves.) (watch out for dairy)

Mix the following ingredients together then combine all together:
1/2 tsp onion powder (or green onions)
1/4 tsp minced ginger (I doubled this and it was great)
1/2 tsp sesame oil (Sushi Chef most are GF)
1/2 tsp fish sauce (Thai Kitchen  most are GF)
1 Tablespoon GF soy sauce (LaChoy or Kikuman's new GF type)
1 egg

Mix altogether and form into patties. Brown on each side in a nonstick skillet or my trusty cast iron on medium heat.

Serve atop greens with a Cucumber Aiolo sauce (fancy name for a simple sauce)

1 Tbs. mayo
1 Tbs. finely grated cucumber

Delicious! Easy and already to make from the contents of the pantry!!! So this one moves to one of the top twenty easy/fast main dish recipes.

GREAT!! Even without the sesame oil. Leave it in the "dough" stage for a good ten minutes before you fry it to help it stick together into a patty better.

Hey, I added chopped water chestnuts this time. Delish!
