Pan-Fried Tuna Patties With Sriracha Mayo Recipe


    For the Tuna Patties:

    • 2 cans (about 10 oz each) tuna, drained
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (optional)
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil for frying

    For the Sriracha Mayo:

    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    • 1-2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce (adjust to taste)
    • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
    • Salt to taste


    For the Tuna Patties:

    In a large bowl, combine drained tuna, breadcrumbs, red onion, celery, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, fresh lemon juice, Old Bay seasoning (if using), salt, and pepper.

    Mix the ingredients until well combined.

    The mixture should hold together easily when shaped into patties.

    Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape each portion into a flat patty.

    Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

    Carefully place the tuna patties in the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

    Once cooked, transfer the tuna patties to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

    For the Sriracha Mayo:

    In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce, fresh lime juice, and salt.

    Adjust the Sriracha sauce to achieve your preferred level of spiciness.


    Serve the pan-fried tuna patties on a platter.

    Drizzle the Sriracha mayo over the patties or serve it on the side for dipping.

    Garnish with fresh herbs like cilantro or parsley if desired.

    Squeeze a bit of lime juice over the patties for an extra burst of flavor.
