Default Tuna Patties

Dinner last night was tuna patties. I drained a can of tuna, mixed
it with about a third of a cup of leftover mashed potatoes, one
crumbled slice of bread, one egg, a spoon of mayonnaise, and seasoning
salt. Then, I browned both sides in olive oil.

Tuna is a great substitute for salmon when making patties.

Is the standard way to make fish patties by mixing with mashed potato?

Looks quick, easy and delicious Tara. I need a few recipes like that
in my repertoire!

Potato or bread crumbs are a traditional binder, yes. I'd think the
potato would hold the cakes together best.

I added the leftover mashed potatoes since I had them on hand. I
don't know if I would bother cooking and mashing a potato otherwise;
it depends on what time, energy, and other ingredients I possess at
the time.

Thank you! They were tasty. I forgot to mention I added some dill.

My mother used matzo meal. I've used flavored breadcrumbs. Neer thought
of mashed potatoes.

It sounded good enough to me that I'd go to the trouble of mashing
some potatoes!

I will assume (especially at this time of year) that the dill was
dried.

Sounds like you use any old fish, is that right? I like your mashed
potato inside and bread crumb outside approach. It seems like mashed
potatoes would make a moist patty. What are your proportions? 50:50?

Yes, the dill was dried. We topped the tuna patties with some hot
sauce. A squeeze of lemon sounds good, too.

Gotta ask... hot sauce as in Tabasco or did you mean a hot creamy
sauce? My first thought was "béchamel"... then I thought, no maybe
she meant she shook it from a bottle.

Thanks for clearing that up. )
