What You’ll Need:
3 cans tuna (5 oz. each – I like Wild Planet Skipjack tuna)
2 tablespoons milk
2 tsp. arrowroot starch
1/8 – 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 c. minced onion
about 2 tablespoons coconut oil (or your choice of healthy fat)
What to Do:
1) Put oil into skillets. Preheat skillets on the stove to a medium heat, until oil is melted and shimmering. (Optional: I like to saute the onion in a little butter to soften it before mixing with tuna.) Meanwhile . . .
2.) Open cans and drain some of the water off, leaving about 2 tablespoons of liquid. Dump tuna and rest of water into a medium size bowl. Use your fingers to break up the tuna.
3.) Add rest of ingredients. Mix thoroughly to combine.
4.) Shape into patties.
5.) Fry until nicely browned on both sides.
