Reduce heat to low, whisking constantly, until flour is lightly toasted, and garlic is golden, about 4 minutes.

Stir in two cans of Oregon’s Choice Albacore, 4 tbsp parsley, 2 1/2tsp lemon juice, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper until combined. Transfer mixture to a large bowl allow to cool for 10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate until cooled and slightly firm, at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.

Lastly, in a third bowl combine 3 cups panko and the remaining 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Roll each croquette in flour, then egg and finally dip in panko to coat.

1/3 Cup Pitted and Sliced Kalamata Olives (Packed tightly.)

6 Tbsp Chopped Sun-Dried Tomatoes

6oz Feta Cheese

1 Tsp Pepper

4 Hard-Boiled Eggs

1 Cup Purple Cabbage

2 Cups Arugula



½ Cup Tahini (You can sub for mayo.)

¼ Cup Greek Yogurt

3 Tbsp Roasted Garlic Olive Oil (Re-use the olive oil from the roasted garlic recipe.)

½ Cup Fresh Basil

½ Tsp Salt

½ Tsp Pepper

1 Head of Roasted Garlic

½ Tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes






Roast Garlic

Preheat oven to 425F. Prepare a piece of foil large enough to create a pocket around the garlic and olive oil mixture. Take whole head of garlic, peeling the outer skin from the garlic head, leaving the cloves intact in their casings.

Slice the top quarter inch of the garlic head off, leaving the cloves exposed. Place garlic in foil pocket. Drizzle the head of garlic with about 3 tbsp of olive oil, making sure all the exposed cloves and surfaces are coated with a light layer of oil. Close pocket. I give it a good shake to make sure oil has seeped into clove well. Place on oven safe dish in case oil seeps out during roasting. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the heads of garlic are tender, aromatic and caramelized.


Boiled Eggs:

Place eggs in a pot large enough to have the eggs in a single layer. Fill with cold water until eggs are just covered. Over medium heat, bring water to a simmer slowly to prevent cracking. Once boiling, boil for 8 minutes. Then drain water and allow eggs to cool in an ice bath.



In a blender or food processor combine the tahini (or mayo), roasted garlic olive oil, greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic (removed from skin), fresh basil, crushed red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Set the mixture aside.


Tuna Mixture:

Open and drain liquids from both Oregon’s Choice Albacore cans. In a sperate bowl combine the Oregon’s Choice Albacore with sundried tomatoes, feta and kalamata olives. Add 1 tsp of pepper and 2 tsp of red pepper flakes. Combined.
