Secret to delicious krabby patties!
Flake the tuna very well, then season it with salt, pepper, and dill. I like to flake the tuna with the spices and herbs to the flavor really mixes in very well.
After the seasonings like I to add the fresh vegetables and the moist ingredients. I combine everything together, making sure to flake the tuna very well. This way I know the ingredients are distributed very well. Then I mix in the gluten-free breadcrumbs.
After the breadcrumbs are added to the tuna, you can form the tuna into as many patties as you desire. You could shape them into anywhere from 4 to 6 patties. I like shaping them into smaller patties so they cook more quickly.
Next, I cook the tuna patties. I drizzle some olive oil into a cast-iron skillet and cook these for a few minutes on each side, and you will soon have some delicious tuna patties.

- Shape into 4 patties (mixture will be very soft and delicate). Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make the patties easier to handle, if desired can be made up a day or two in advance.
- Coat a cast iron skillet with cooking spray, oil or butter(just enough to coat not shallow frying); fry tuna patties for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. These are fragile, so be careful when turning them. Then I pop them into the oven for 5-10 minutes. Using a cast iron skillet makes it even easier. Serve plain or on gluten-free buns.
