  • 2 3- ounce packages of white Albacore tuna in water, drained
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 cloves roasted garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Tablespoon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • canola or vegetable oil, for frying


  • 12 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 green onions, diced
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice


  • Combine tomatoes, onion, parsley, green onion, lime juice, garlic salt and pepper in small bowl
  • Set bowl into fridge for about 20 minutes. This will allow flavors to develop and deepen
  • Put tuna into large bowl, and flake. Add onion, spring onion, bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, lime juice, mustard, hot sauce, salt & pepper. Stir lightly to combine, and taste to ensure seasoning. 
  • Add egg and combine thoroughly. Form mixture into patties (I use 1/4 cup measuring cup to ensure uniform size)
  • Heat oil in large non-stick skillet. When oil is hot, add patties to skillet. Cook patties for approximately 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Patties are ready to turn when they pull away from skillet easily
  • Remove patties, and set on paper towels to drain excess oil
  • Top patties with tomato salsa, and serve immediately
