Tuna Patties with Shredded Sweet Potato

I have been on the hunt for easy recipes that I can make quickly so that I can have dinner on the table every night for my family. We have also been focusing on eating more fish in an effort to be more healthy and also keep our cholesterol down.

This tuna patties recipe starts with extremely healthy canned tuna. The one that I picked this time is Poll & Troll caught. It is called Wild Planet Albacore Tuna. It says that it is rich in Omega 3 oils and is lower in mercury as compared to conventional tuna due to the smaller fish we catch. I am all for avoiding the mercury because I could literally eat tuna for every meal especially sushi.

My husband is not big on the sushi or fish in general so I have to sneak it into his diet in creative ways. He loved these Tuna Patties and even went back for seconds! That’s when I know I did a good job!!
