Original recipe yields 6 patties

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in scallops; cook, turning until white on all sides. Drain, and set scallops aside to cool.
  2. Place into a food processor the onion, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, egg, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Then add parsley, basil leaves, chiles, and Italian seasoning. Pulse on medium setting until finely chopped. Place scallops, tuna, and shrimp into food processor, and pulse on low. Gradually pour in breadcrumbs, continuing to pulse until the mixture becomes firm and slightly sticky but is not pureed to a paste (the seafood should maintain some texture).
  3. Form the mixture into palm-size patties, about 1 inch thick. Place on a plate, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dredge patties lightly in flour; shake off excess flour, and place patties in skillet. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

This recipe was great! I too was forced to make substitutions due to budgets. I used a can of spicy thai tuna to replace the scallops and shrimp. I also added scallions and cilantro. I can't eat flour so i used oats instead of bread crumbs. They were absolutely superb! I look forward to using the original ingredients on my next attempt!

I made a Poor-man's version of this - using an extra can of tuna instead of the shrimp and scallops...and a splash of spaghetti sauce instead of the tomatoes, and almost all dried seasoning...like I said: Poor-man's version. This probably didn't give your recipe much justice, but it was still really good, I'm glad to find a new way to eat tuna!

If I can make this dish and get rave reviews anyone can since I rarely cook. I literally threw it together knowing I wouldn't have a second to spare to make it on time to a traditional Italian 7-fish-dinner Christmas Eve celebration with friends. I snuck 2 cakes before leaving my house -mmmm yummy. They were a smash success. I used the exact recipe above, except also added fresh dill. Easy and very, very tasty.
