  • Tuna, canned in springwater, 300 g
  • Red onion, 1 small, finely chopped
  • Coriander, 2 tablespoon(s) leaves, chopped
  • Lemon zest, 2 teaspoon(s), finely grated
  • Eggs, raw, 2 extra large egg(s), separated
  • Plain flour, wholemeal, 0.2 cup(s), 2 tablespoons
  • Vegetable oil, 2 tablespoon(s)

Method

Place tuna, onion, coriander and lemon zest in a bowl and mix lightly with a fork. Add egg yolks (reserving whites for later) and continue to mix. Season lightly. Sift flour into mixture, and gently fold through.

Place the egg whites in a clean bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Spoon the whites into the tuna mixture and gently fold through. With slightly wet hands, form the mixture into 8 patties.

Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add patties and cook for 5 minutes each side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve tuna patties with a mixed-leaf salad tossed with an oil-free dressing.

TIP: The tarts, bakes, pies and patties are fantastic lunchbox options, and keep well in the fridge for several days. Take them to work for lunch, and eat them cold or warm, with a side salad or vegetables.
