A Delicious Meal and Appetizer

Fish and potatoes are a classic combination throughout many different cuisines. One potato/fish recipe that comes to mind (other than fish and chips or bacalau, of course) is tuna cutlet, a South Indian dish that is spicy and delicious. Even better, not only can you eat it as a light meal, but you can serve it as an appetizer for guests when hosting a party. Whether you dip it in ketchup or chutney, tuna cutlets will be sure to please even the most adamant fish hater.

Instructions

  1. Heat a bit of oil in a medium sized skilled. Add onions and garlic and saute in medium heat. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  2. Next, add the tuna to the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes, just to incorporate the onion and garlic. After that add the spices and cook and mix well for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
  3. Once the tuna mixture is cooled, add it to the potatoes and mix well. In a separate bowl, separate the yolks from the whites of the two eggs. Save the whites and mix with a fork.
  4. Take a cup of flour or breadcrumbs and put it on another plate. Form about a tablespoon of tuna potato mixture into a ball. Dip in egg whites and coat with flour or breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat a skillet with oil. Fry the cutlets for five minutes in total, roughly 2 minutes per side. Serve with ketchup or chutney. Enjoy!
