Quick and Easy Appetizers – Tuna Potato Patties


By Rebecca Garcia


Whenever my favorite brand of canned tuna is on bargain, I definitely grab a couple of cans extra to store up. Canned tuna is value for money, highly nutritious (a great source of Omega-3 fats), versatile and saves oodles of cooking time. Not just as a sandwich spread anymore, canned tuna can be incorporated creatively into salads, casseroles, pasta, rice and many more.


Today, I will show you one really easy and inexpensive alternative to meat patties – tuna potato patty. These tuna-based patties are great on its own as snacks (the kids love it!), or can be served with a bowl of crunchy salad as a full meal. And yes, they make great finger food appetizers too!

1 small green capsicum, finely diced

1 large potato, boiled and peeled

6 tablespoons olive oil


How to make potato cakes
