  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon old bay seasoning
  • 4 5 ounce cans albacore tuna, drained
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/8 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/4 cup finely diced celery
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill
  • 3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil


  • Beat eggs and lemon juice in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine Parmesan cheese,  bread crumbs, Old Bay, tuna, mustard, onion, celery, black pepper and dill. Pour in egg/lemon mixture.
  • Shape tuna mixture into about eight 1-inch-thick patties. NOTE: If you have time, it is best to refrigerate patties for at least an hour. This will help them stay together better during frying. However, this is no a required step.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Fry patties until golden brown,  about 5 minutes per side.
