Tuna-Potato Croquettes Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 (6 ounce) can chunk light tuna in water, drained and flaked
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  1. Partially mash potatoes in a bowl with a fork until they begin to hold together. Add tuna, egg, salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon oil; stir to combine. Shape into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat; add the patties and cook until browned on the first side, about 5 minutes. Carefully turn the patties with a wide spatula and cook until golden on the second side, about 3 minutes more.
