  • Peel the onion and garlic, rinse and cut in half.

  • Rinse the tuna fillets, cut into medium size chunks. Then mince the fish and vegetables in a food processor. Season with spices and mix well. 

  • Break the egg, add to the minced fish. Pour in lemon juice and mix well.

  • Pour the breadcrumbs in a flat plate (for breading). Make minced fish balls, then roll in breadcrumbs and put to the kitchen board.

  • Heat the frying pan, pour in vegetable oil and transfer the cutlets. Brown for 4 minutes on both sides.

  • The cooked cutlets transfer on a paper towel, to remove the excess oil.


  • To defrost fish quickly, place it into microwave and use the defrost setting. The second way – transfer the fish to a bowl, filled with cold water. Let it sit for about an hour. The third way – put under running water (about 30 minutes).

  • How to get lemon juice. Take out the lemon from the fridge, leave it heat up for a few minutes. Then roll the fruit on your cooking board with your hands. This action helps to get more juice. Then slice the lemon crosswise using a sharp knife. Squeeze the lemon with the cutting side up, so the seeds don’t fall into the bowl.

Bon Appetit!
