We think you will will enjoy these crispy patties.  They have a nice flavor and a crunch that we really enjoyed.  We haven't cooked with Tuna yet but we wanted to and show something instead of Tuna Casserole.  The dish was interesting to make however Chef again said it was difficult to form the patties, he said they didn't hold that well but he used a patty former.  You can use these on beef or anything to form a good patty.  To see us make them check our the video below.
