“This is a recipe that look so good. And it can be frozen. The tuna patties can be served with a tartar sauce if you prefer. ETA : i made it on September 5, 2011. This is wonderful with the marinara sauce. I used fresh tomatoes from my garden. I had only 2 can of tuna, so I added a can of salmon. But it tastes only tuna. Even my son likes these patties. And he eats them plain. No sauce.”
