How to Make Tuna Fish Fritters: Frugal and Tasty Tuna Recipe


HOW TO MAKE TUNA FISH FRITTERS

Tuna fish fritters are a delicious food. Tuna fish fritters are so appetizing and appealing. I enjoy eating this food. Included in this hub is an easy online tuna fish fritters recipe. Inspired by delicious Caribbean codfish cakes or fritters, I had the idea to make the far more accessible and inexpensive tuna fish fritter with a relatively simple recipe.

I looked to the Internet for some guidance on my ingredients measurements for the tuna fish fritters and here I must credit partyinmykitchen.blogspot.com, approximately the ninth article down when I googled tuna fish fritters.

  • The author of this food and recipe blog discusses experiments in the kitchen as a college student just cooking whatever food is on hand.
  • I must say I completed college several years ago but I still love cooking food on a budget, with minimal recipe ingredients.

I followed the tuna fish fritters recipe advice of this food blogger as a starting off point for how to make tuna fish fritters and I made some minor changes of my own for the tuna fish fritters recipe.

For example, the food blogger's recipe for tuna fish fritters calls for canned corn but I enjoy using "mexicorn" which is a combination of corn, red peppers and green peppers for this dish.

  • Canned mexicorn can be found in the same aisle as canned plain corn.
  • I additionally use 1 or 2 fresh limes at a cost of approximately 79 cents each as a garnish on the tuna fish fritters dish.
  • Squeezing the juice of the lime on to the tuna fish fritter makes the tuna fish fritters phenomenally tasty! Lime is a terrific accompaniment to fish in general.
