Tuna Patties with Mayonnaise Dip

What do you do when you are 7 months pregnant and feeling extremely irritated and pissed at someone?
a) Go for a calming prenatal massage
b) Take a warm, soothing bath
c) Scream at your husband
d) All of the above

My answer was (d) but they don't seem to be working. Therefore, I resorted to..... cooking! Here's an easy recipe to get rid of the rage.

Tuna Patties
  • 1 can of plain tuna chunks in water
  • 1 medium sized potato - boiled & mashed
  • Some carrots - boiled & mashed
  • Some spring onions, diced
  • 1 shallot, finely diced or pre-blended into paste
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp of mustard (optional)
  • 1 tsp of corn flour
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Peel the potato, cut it into pieces and boil it until soft. Same goes for the carrots.
  2. Place the tuna chunks in a sieve to drain the water.
  3. Mash the potato, carrots and tuna in a large bowl. Add in all other ingredients and mix well.
  4. Heat up the pan with some cooking oil (I use olive oil) for 1 minute on medium heat.
  5. Use your palm to shape and firmly compress the mixture into patties. Fry them until golden brown.
  6. Serve warm with some salad and mayonnaise dip.

PS: To get rid of the rage, I imagined the potato was that someone before I boiled it and mashed it up. The best thing was... Dear Hubby happily finished them up.

Who says cooking has to be all about love?
