Ingredients:

Patties:

1 x 280g tuna in olive oil, drained

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1 extra large egg

1/4 cup spring onions, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp curry powder

3 tbsp sesame seeds

Extra virgin olive oil, for cooking

Pinch sea salt

Lemon Yoghurt:

1/2 cup natural yoghurt of choice, unsweetened

3 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest

1/2 tsp dill leaves, fresh or dried

Pinch sea salt

Fresh lemon wedges to serve

 

Method: 

1. Drain tuna and flake into a mixing bowl.

2. Add pre-cooked quinoa, egg, spring onions, garlic and curry powder. Mix well, making sure tuna is flaked finely.

3. Sprinkle half the amount of sesame seeds onto a flat plate.

4. Carefully shape mixture into 6 patties and place onto plate with seeds.

5. Add remaining seeds on top of patties and coat.

6. Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

7. Cook patties for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden. Don’t press down (keep patties in their shape). Be gentle when turning over and don’t cook over too high heat so seeds don’t burn.

8. Meanwhile, combine yoghurt with lemon juice, zest and dill.

9. Serve patties topped with lemon yogurt and your choice of sides. Squeeze over fresh lemon just before enjoying to add extra freshness.
