Jalapeno Tuna Fritters
Canned tuna is one of my pantry staples since it’s an easy source of protein during the week. Normally I like to flake it over a salad, but when I have a little extra time I love throwing together these Jalapeno Tuna Fritters.
These patties are protein packed and filled with flavor, and are delicious as a snack during the day.
Tuna fritters are a great make-ahead option for busy weeks. You can even serve them as an appetizer for when you have guests over.
When I have a ton of recipes to test, I love having quick, nourishing foods that are ready to eat in the fridge to simplify my meals. I’ll usually throw one or two of these patties over a large salad and call it lunch! They’re so simple to make, and easily customizable.
What you’ll need to made these jalapeno tuna patties:
- canned tuna- I prefer mine in water, and usually go for solid white albacore tuna
- cassava flour- you can use oat flour or all-purpose flour instead, or substitute your favorite breadcrumbs
- scallions and jalapeno pepper
- fresh parsley
- garlic powder, salt & pepper!
The fresh yogurt dill sauce pairs so well with the spicy burgers. It’s fresh and zesty, and the perfect yogurt dip to serve as a side for veggies too!
This recipe is quick and easy, and truly the perfect work week lunch. You guys are going to love it!
Great recipe. Very easy. A little time consuming since you’re cutting up ingredients but end result was yummy! Liked the dipping sauce as well. I followed this exactly & it was delish!
I am newly diagnosed with an egg allergy,; what can I substitute here?
I haven’t tested any subs, but you may be able to use a flax egg instead (1 tbsp flax seed + 2 1/2 tbsp of water). Otherwise those cartoned egg replacers should work!
