Making tuna patties is pretty basic and I’m sure everyone’s tried them at least once. Here’s what I used:
2 x 200g canned tuna
1/4 cup flour
3 stalks green onions diced finely
2 tsp ginger minced
1/3 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients.
Drop spoonfuls onto a heated and oiled frying pan. Flatten the spoonfuls into patties and fry both sides until browned and cooked.
For the salad, I used cucumber, wakame and sesame seeds. I also recycled the salad dressing recipe that I used in my last wakame adventure.
However this time, once the tuna patties and the salad had been assembled, I drizzled a slightly runny wasabi paste over the whole dish! It definitely gave the meal a bit of a kick!
I usually buy wasabi in powder form. A Japanese friend once told me that I should only prepare the paste just before using as the flavour tends to evaporate. For this meal, I made my wasabi paste runnier that I usually have it when I’m eating sushi or sashimi.
Runny wasabi paste
½ tsp wasabi
3 tsp water
Mix well and spoon into mouth…hehe..no, drizzle on the tuna patties and salad!
Voila, another healthy meal! (I don’t think I can take this salad eating much longer!)
