Grilled Tuna Patties for Lunch!
This was our post-Helen lunch! Once I was capable of driving home, and the sick feeling in my stomach went away, I realized I was hungry! With the husband home for the day, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out these tuna patties. I thought they were really good!
1 7oz can solid white albacore tuna packed in water, thoroughly drained
2 egg whites
1 cup grated zucchini
1 clove minced garlic
2 T chopped fresh parsley
celery salt (optional)
1-2 tsp. olive oil
Combine tuna, egg whites, zucchini, garlic, parsley, pepper and celery salt. Mix well and form into two patties. There will be a little liquid left over, and the patties will be kind of loose... that's okay. Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan. Grill tuna patties on medium heat until brown. Gently flip patties to brown the other side. I added a little more oil to prevent sticking. Sprinkle with paprika for added color. I served them on a bed of romaine lettuce leaves and with a side of cantaloupe. Yummy!
