Spicy tuna patties a la Kada.

This is one i made up myself after seeing so many bland bland BLAND recipes for tuna patties over the years.

- 1/2 medium onion chopped fine + an equal amount of chopped spring/green onions
- 3-5 cloves garlic
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 c chopped fresh coriander/cilantro (or italian parsley if you don't like coriander/cilantro)
- 2 tsp sambal oelek/chilli paste. (or to taste)
- 1 tsp mustard
- 2 eggs beaten, (or 1 egg and two white, or 4 whites)
- 2 x 6oz cans tuna in spring water, drained
- 2 Tbs lemon juice
- 4 Tbs flour
s and p to taste

Saute onions and garlic in a pan until translucent. turn off flame

In a bowl add eggs, tuna, lemon juice, sambal, mustard, greens and cumin. Stir until well combined.
Stir in onions and garlic.
Add flour 1 tablespoon at a time. The mixture will be quite sloppy.

Measure out some mixture into a 1/4 cup measure and plop mixture into skillet/frypan to cook. (our skillet managed three patties at once) Pat down with a spoon or spatula a little. makes 8 patties that way.
If you like em a little bigger, use 1/3 cup measure. And if the texture's not to your liking.. add a little more flour to the remaining mix.

These are great hot or cold. very low in fat, even if you do use the whole eggs.

I usually make a quadruple batch and freeze the remainders. ;)

If people want the nutritional breakdown, I can do that.
