These tender golden tuna patties, draped with a creamy dill sauce, have a wonderful blend of flavors. Parsnips are the "secret ingredient". They replace part of the traditional bread crumbs...and add moisture, fiber and extra nutrition.

"Different, that's for sure. The dill sauce is excellent but the tuna patties are just okay. Maybe I didn't brown them enough since they were kind of soft. If I make again, I'll brown longer at a higher temp. May or may not make again but probably will make the dill sauce again for other dishes."

"We really enjoyed these. Not a big lemon lover, so next time will cut back on the lemon. I served potatoe salad with it and way to many flavors going on, so serve with a plain sidedish. Going for french fries or mixed veggies as shown next time. Just the two of us, so I put the extra in the freezer."

"This is a mixed bag. The dill sauce is wonderful and I have made it over and over for my salmon patties. These tuna patties, however, are "ick"."
