Just a simple recipe I threw together while my hungry husband was on his way home. I think this is the first recipe on my blog that isn't strictly vegetarian. It made for a quick, easy, enthusiastically consumed dinner (you might have noticed that around here, the word "dinner" is usually combined with the words "quick" and "easy" :o))
The following quantities make about 15 small fritters, but the batch can be easily doubled
1 onion, finely chopped
1 potato, finely grated
1 zucchini, finely grated (can be replaced with a carrot or some pumpkin)
200 gr canned tuna (that's two standard tuna cans around here)
About 1 cup flour (the flour has to hold the liquids and make the mixture firm enough to work with comfortably, so you might need a bit more, or a bit less – see as you go. You should be fine, provided that you add the flour gradually)
Spices to taste (I normally don't add salt to anything containing a fair amount of canned tuna, as the tuna has lots of added salt already)
Mix everything together. Take tablespoonfuls of the mixture, and drop onto a frying pan, then press slightly with the back of the tablespoon. Or alternatively, form balls with your hands and squish them slightly, then place in frying pan.
Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Serve with whatever side dishes your heart desires, preferably a big fresh salad and some baked potatoes.
