This is one of the best high protein snacks around.
I came up with it myself out of need for a very simple, quick high protein recipe that was made with real food.
The ingredients couldn’t be simpler:
It works better with tuna in brine, as opposed to oil. By the way, squeeze the brine out of the tuna to make it very dry before starting.
(1) Take a tin of tuna
(2) Add 1 or 2 eggs and whisk together until gooey. It just depends on how ‘thick’ you want them. Try adding just one egg first.
(3) Heat a non-stick skillet and pour on the mixture, makes 2 tuna patties. Allow to brown on each side but don’t cook them until they are dry right through. They taste better when still moist in the middle.
I like salsa with these, but experiment with different sauces. You can also add a seasoning of your choice or cheese to the mixture before cooking for a variation in flavor and texture.
This is an extremely easy and tasty way to get about 40 grams of quality protein in your daily diet.
