Tuna Croquettes and Homemade Salt-and-Vinegar Potato Chips UPDATED

01 Nov

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I had set this blog to auto-post without realizing my failure to include the picture, so here it is!

This meal was without any doubt one of the best I’ve had in a long, long time!

Kimberly made Tuna Croquettes, which largely consisted of tuna, ranch seasoning, and some more secret ingredients. The croquettes were then fried, and the result was amazingly tasty.

Meanwhile, Tyler sliced potatoes thinly, fried them, and tossed them in vinegar and salt, resulting in homemade potato chips. To this, he also made tartar sauce, which completely set off the flavor of the potato chips.

Unfortunately, the cans of tuna used did not actually make as many croquettes as we had imagined, but we all still had plenty to eat. They were delicious and went pretty fast, and when added to the tartar sauce and eaten with the salt-and-vinegar chips, it was a whole new seafood festival going on!

Any kind of food that has an appropriate amount of seasoning to complement the flavor invariably grabs my attention, and the croquettes are a prime example of a food with spices I had never considered to mix with tuna.

The reality of it all, though, is that the Tuna Croquettes were actually vastly superior to Salmon Patties. The flavor and texture were lighter and not quite as fishy. This may have had more to do with the size of that croquettes, but I can’t be sure.

All right, so leave me some "feed" back on how you like your tuna seasoned. I’m sure Van Tilden has a number of things she can share with us on here!

    do u guys get together to cook?

    hmmm i dont really use tuna so often…yasu doesnt like fish much and i just dont eat much haha. when i do eat tuna i usually just put it on crackers. boring right?

    i do make mayo tuna onigiri sometimes. just mix tuna with mayo and salt/pepper or whatnot and put it in the middle of a ball of rice and wrap with seaweed. very basic. very yummy! the store bought ones are better. they go to great lengths to flavor the rice to match.

    these do look better than salmon patties.

      Well, we’re all at Tyler’s house when this happens, so we’re naturally inclined to cook together.

      My mouth always waters when I think about the delicious food you make, Tilly .
