Tuna Patties & Baked Zucchini Fries!

Tuna fish has been a big part of American meals.  You can't mention food from the 1940s and 1950s without mentioning a few tuna dishes.  I think tuna patties are a good rockabilly food.  You can eat them "as is" with a condiment (tartar sauce, ketchup, mustard, etc) or as a burger substitute (aka throw it on a bun).

Tuna Patties
1 Can of Tuna
1 TBSP Ground Flaxseed (not a fan of flax? Try adding in Chia Seed)
3 TBSP Eggs
1 TBSP Onion, diced
1 TBSP Parsley
2 tsp Dill
1/2 Clove Garlic
1/2 TBSP Lemon Juice
Pinch of Salt & Pepper

  1. Mix everything together in a bowl.
  2. Prepare a frying pan by heating on medium-high.  You might want to add in a little coconut or olive oil.
  3. Roll/press your mixture into patties.  Cook them for 6-7 minutes on each side.

While I was making my tuna patties, I had some Baked Zucchini Fries going in the oven.  If you make the zucchini first, your food should be ready all at the same time - super convenient.

Baked Zucchini Fries
2 Zucchini
1/2 cup Parmesean
1/2 tsp Garlic
1/2 tsp Basil
1 tsp Parsley
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cut your zucchini length-wise into eight pieces.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together your cheese and herbs.
  4. Cover your zucchini strips in olive oil, then sprinkle on the herb-cheese mix.  Place on baking sheet.
  5. When your zucchini is all ready for baking, place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Optional: Try switching up your herbs.  You can make it more Italian or French - etc.  You can also try using other oils like coconut or avocado or walnut.
