Feta & Spinach Tuna Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 2 cans Oregon’s Choice Gourmet Albacore Tuna
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ tbsp lemon zest
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp za’atar
  • Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup spinach, finely chopped
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Avocado oil, to fry

 

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and lemon juice. Add the lemon zest, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, za’atar, and salt and pepper and whisk with a fork to combine.
  2. Add the tuna, spinach, and feta cheese and mix with a fork until well combined. Form the mixture into golf ball sized balls.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add enough avocado oil to coat the bottom of the pan in a thin layer. When the oil is hot, carefully place a few tuna balls in the pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  4. Remove from the pan and let cool slightly before serving with tzatziki or otherwise as desired.
