Tuna Bites

250 grams / (8 3/4 ounces) canned tuna
3 whole eggs
100 ml / (6 3/4 tablespoons) olive
    oil or cold pressed coconut oil
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Parsley (to taste)
Pepper or Lemon Pepper (to taste)

  • Drain the tuna and shred it with the help of a fork. Set aside.
  • In a glass bowl mix well the whole eggs along with the flour. 
  • Then, add the chopped parsley and the pepper. 
  • Finally, add the shredded tuna and stir well.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet. When hot, remove small portions of the tuna mixture with the help of a teaspoon and fry them on both sides in the oil until they turn golden (while frying, flatten the bites slightly with the help of a fork to remove the liquid that remains inside).
  • When they are fried, place them on absorbent paper. 
  • Serve the tuna bites with a lettuce salad.
