      Ghaelach, I am very glad you liked my recipe, it is very simple and delicious, and to tell you honestly I have never tried freezing it simply because we never have any left to freeze, but I am sure it should be just fine if you do freeze it.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my hub :)

      Hi Margarita.

      Just browsing over your hubpages and spotted this wonderful recipe for what we call over here in Germany "Frikadella" or better said a tuna frikadella (tuna pâte or fish cake). I seems so easy to make with very little ingredients.

      Q: Can you freeze them?

      Take care and have a nice weekend.

      LOL Ghaelach

      This recipe is great for me because we always have these ingredients in our pantry. I've saved it for next time I haven't been to the market and I'm looking for something quick and yummy. Thanks!

      Okay, no pressure at all. I would love to hear it someday. I tend to just toss my personal stuff right out there for the world to see, but I understand that some people aren't as comfortable with that as I am. :) In fact, I may be way over the edge on the other side of the spectrum.

      You were so sweet in your comment on the last hub that I decided to visit twice in one day. Your profile is quite interesting. I'm not sure I paid that much attention to it the first time I read grew up in Russia but now live in Oregon??? Is there a hub about that transformation? I'd love to read that story.

      Anyway, about this hub...I'm sick and tired of recipe hubs :) but I love tuna, so here I am telling you well done. Now, about that trip from Russia to Oregon......????

      your friend,
