Recipe Wednesday

Today's recipe is for tuna pancakes. Yes, I said tuna pancakes. Stay with me here. ;)

Tuna Pancakes
6 oz can of chunk light tuna in water, drained
1 egg
1 green onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons ground flax
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

2. Pour onto a hot griddle that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. You can pour it all at once and make one big one (spread it out a little so it's not too thick) or you could pour it into 2 or 3 smaller pancakes.

3. Cook on one side for a few minutes until it begins to brown on the bottom. Flip over and cook on the other side for a few minutes.

I like these with just a sprinkle of salt, but you could probably use a little sour cream, if desired. I probably wouldn't put syrup on them though! :)

Here's a picture of one big tuna pancake. I served it with broccoli.

Abby, I'm pretty sure this one qualifies as Food-Porn...but for some odd reason, it sounds almost tasty. I'll try it out on my 8 year-old mini me and let you know how well it went.

It really is good, mike...don't trip. I eat that all the time. Try it with some eggplant, Abby! Boil the eggplant til it softens up, dip in some battered egg, salt to taste and fry - bam!

I got home on Friday night and made it (although the rest of the family was not required to partake in the tuna suprise). My wife had just eaten and gave the excuse, "I have a good taste in my mouth and don't want to ruin it". My daughter actually liked did I. I didn't have a copy of the recipe when I went home, so I had to wing it. Ended up using two eggs instead of one, added some whipped cream cheese and a tsp of balsamic vinegar.

good stuff Abby

later, Mikez

Haha! That's funny about your wife not wanting to try it. I might have to give it a try with your additions. Glad you liked it!
