Ingredients

  • 6.4 oz. package chunk tuna
  • 1 avocado peeled and pitted
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • olive oil to grease pan

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the tuna, avocado, almond flour and mayonnaise.  Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium high heat.  Shape tuna mixture into 10 equal sized patties.  Cook in preheated skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side.  (Turn down the heat to medium if browning too quickly.)

Notes

We enjoy these over a bed of field greens drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.  Sprinkle with flax seed and chopped pecans for extra crunch!
