One of my early memories of canned tuna is already in college. (I know! I’m always telling you about my food memories haha!) This is because having grown up in an island, it’s a scandal to be buying canned fish. Your neighbors would talk about you and you would be a pariah! Scary. Haha!
Anyway, back in college, I used to eat in a house that cooks meals for students. I’d pay weekly and this lola cooks for us. It’s like eating at your own house actually. One of my favorites among the food she cooks is this tuna with tomatoes every Friday morning. This is not exactly her recipe but close enough!
Tuna Patties with Tomatoes
3 cans calamansi tuna (Century), oil drained well
3 large eggs
1/2 cup chopped red onion
3 tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
oil for cooking
1. Mix everything together in a bowl until well combined.
2. Form small patties with your hands (about 1 1/2 inches in diameter).
3. Cook in oil in a hot pan. Do not touch till you see the edges are formed.
