A melange of several existing recipes, these easy fish patties came together in under 30 minutes, using a handful of common ingredients costing around $2. While I enjoyed the balance between tangy mustard, zesty red pepper flakes, and sweet red bell peppers, the recipe is endlessly adaptable. Try adding in some lemon, a few fresh herbs, horseradish, mayonnaise, or even bits of celery. Just make sure to compensate for any added moisture with more breadcrumbs and perhaps another bit of egg, or the patties could fall apart. http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/03/healthy-delicious-dijon-tuna-burgers-sandwiches-recipe.html
