Lime Cilantro Tuna Patties

There is something deliciously intriguing about the simple tuna patty.When done right, a crisp outer opens the door for a flaky and flavorful middle all melding into one delightful morsel. After a good number of tuna experiments, my husband and I both agree that these are the best we have ever tasted. I think you'll enjoy them too.

Lime Cilantro Tuna Patties

2-6 oz cans of tuna
1 small plain bagel torn into small pieces
1/4 of a lime (including the zest and juice)
1 dash of salt
A couple turns of pepper
Approx 2 teaspoons barbecue sauce (I used KC masterpiece)
1 raw egg
1 Tablespoons oil  (I prefer canola or olive)
1/4 teaspoon dried cilantro
3 Tablespoons minced onion

Oil to cook patties in

Combine all ingredients and form 4 patties. Cover and place patties in the fridge to chill for 1 hour. Chilling helps prevent the patties from crumbling while cooking. If in a hurry you can cook the patties without chilling them first. Heat about 3 Tablespoons of oil in a cast iron skillet. Cook patties for about 3-4 min on each side. After removing them from the skillet place on paper towels to absorb excess oil. 

I love serving these patties with a lemon garlic pasta and crisp buttery corn.
