    1. Combine tuna, egg, bread crumbs, onion, celery, capsicum, mayonnaise, sweet chilli sauce, hot chilli sauce, dill, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Shape into 4 patties. The mixture will be very soft and delicate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make the patties easier to handle.
    2. Coat a non-stick frypan with cooking spray or olive oil and fry the tuna patties for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. These are fragile, so be careful when turning them.

    My family is out of cash and we have canned tuna specially for these hard times, so making this recipe was perfect. It took 30 minutes to make from start to finish along with cooking baked potatoes. Everyone absolutely loved this recipe and the cost is so low even paupers like me can live like kings. (stomach-wise) hehe Seriously, this is a lightning fast, budget friendly and super yummy recipe.. it is also very forgiving when you dont have all the ingredients.  -  13 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a fantastic recipe. I have made tuna patties in the past and this recipe had the best flavor and consistency...similar to crab cakes. I added a bit more bread crumbs...about 3/4 cup total and served it with some southwestern flavored sour cream dip, but tartar would be good. I also made these on my George Foreman grill. Just spray the grill with oil spray and cook about four minutes. No need to flip or anything. Highly recommend.  -  17 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Recipe pretty good as is, but next time, I will make the following changes: use regular bread crumbs--not Italian flavored. The oregano was overpowering. Also, use green onion and not regular. I think celery salt can be used for celery, and like other reviewers, I left out the dill all together. I added cajun seasoning, and although it was spicy, we loved it. I will definitely make these again with the above listed alterations.  -  10 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
