This is by far the best tuna patties recipe I've ever tried. It's so easy to prepare, and it has great flavor. I substituted crushed seasoned croutons for the bread crumbs, and it worked fine. I also realized after the fact that I'd forgotten to sprinkle the corn meal on the patties. They were delicious anyway. It just goes to show that you can't "mess up" this recipe. Thanks for sharing it, Michelle! Read More

Interesting combination of flavors- like nothing I had ever had before. Needed something else though... next time perhaps some fresh grated ginger crushed red pepper flakes more teriyaki sauce. Nice texture though. Read More

This was wonderful!! i skipped the sesame oil as I didn't have any. I will get it for the next time though as my patties were a tiny bit dry. I loved this though and can't wait to have some for lunch tomorrow! Per another persons suggestions I made Peanut Butter Noodles(also from this site) to go with the patties. It was delish! Read More

Hearty & hits the spot. Goes together quickly. Overall not too shabby. Omitted the green onion since I didn't have any. Used olive oil instead of sesame added about a tsp of peanut butter to replace the flavor of the sesame oil and for extra protein. Added a dash of 5-spice powder too. Cooked on a cast iron skillet with only a bit of olive oil. I'd make it again especially to serve on a bed of lettuce and with steamed veggies on the side. Read More

This was excellent! I DESPISE canned tuna but was looking for a recipe using things I had on hand and so whipped up this with things in my house...and I'm so glad I did! I followed the recipe exactly except used regular onions instead of green onions. When I make it again I think I will try coating it with breadcrumbs instead of cornmeal as I don't care for the gritty texture that cornmeal has. Other than that this recipe is awesome!!! Read More

Boy..these did not turn out well at all!! I followed the recipe with the exception of using garlic powder in place of the real thing. For some reason my tuna was very FISHY...so the problem could have been on my end. I just didn't think these had much of an asian taste to them. Won't be making them again but thanks for sharing.

I was really psyched to try this one because of the great ratings but I didn't think it was worth a 5--I grudgingly give it a four. The "Asian" flavor was very subtle I guess I was expecting a stronger flavor. Read More

I thought that this was a tasty and quick dinner. It was a little dry but I had cut back on the oil. I used crushed seasoned croutons instead of bread crumbs for extra flavor and I left off the corn meal because I was in a rush. My 4 yr. old loved it and had seconds even the baby ate all of hers before she ate her fruit. Read More
