These easy tuna patties have become part of my weekly meal prep rotation. I always have cans of tuna lying around for a quick protein, but sometimes crave something a bit more heartier. These tuna patties are quick to throw together and have the perfect hint of spiciness.
They even won over my tuna hating husband! That says a lot, trust me.
These tuna patties are perfect with a side salad, on a bun, or with a fun dip. I paired them with the most refreshing minty yogurt dip that’s made with the simplest ingredients-
- Greek yogurt
- fresh mint leaves
- garlic powder
That’s it! It’s so creamy and delicious, and would go great with fresh veggies, other grilled proteins, or with toasted bread.
These patties are a great make-ahead option for busy weeks, or 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!
The ingredients in these easy tuna patties are so minimal, you likely have them all at home.
What you’ll need for the spicy tuna patties:
- canned tuna- I prefer mine in water
- bread crumb- you can use gluten-free or regular. I’ve even pulsed my favorite crackers into a crumb mixture before
- sriracha- because we love things spicy
- garlic powder, salt & pepper!
You can leave out the sriracha if you don’t love the spice, and add in fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro for extra flavor.
