A friend of mine asked me the other day, “does canned tuna expire?” Turns out it doesn’t. It can last for years and years and years. How crazy is that?

Easy Canned Tuna Patties

So I thought it might be fun to look at a great canned tuna recipe – specifically, easy canned tuna patties.

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
  • 10 tablespoons Italian-seasoned bread-crumbs
  • 3 cans of tuna, drained
  • 3 tablespoons onions, diced
  • 1 punch of ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Beat eggs and lemon juice in a bowl; stir in Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs to make a paste. Fold in tuna and onion until well-mixed. Season with black pepper. Shape tuna mixture into eight 1-inch-thick patties.

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; fry patties until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
