Tuna Croquettes

Dinner tonight was, as the topic suggests, tuna croquettes. They were ... pretty good, needed a slight tweak (less vinegar than what I used).

3 5oz cans tuna, drained
2 eggs
dash lemon juice
dash rice vinegar
1/4c. minced onion
tablespoon minced garlic
tablespoon coarse ground mustard
1/2c. italian bread crumbs
1/4c. italian bread crumbs
olive oil to coat skillet

An hour ahead of time, combine the garlic, onion, mustard, salt, pepper, and vinegar. Stir thoroughly. Cover and let it cuddle.

Whisk the eggs with the lemon juice.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the tuna, onion mixture, and egg mixture. Stir well. Add 1/2c bread crumbs and combine thoroughly.

In a skillet over medium heat, bring oil to shimmering.

Form the tuna mix into patties (1/4c. measure works well for sizing), press firmly together, coat in remaining 1/4c bread crumbs, and cook until golden brown, 3-4 minutes per side.

Serve with whatever pleases you.
