    I usually cut down on the oats to a half a cup, using as little as possible but enough to bind the ingredient. Adding diced avocado to the mix makes the patties nice and moist. This recipe also works well with fresh salmon that you may have leftover from the night before

    Can you bake them instead of frying?

    Yes, you can bake them at 350F (180C) until they lightly golden.

    How long can the patties last? Will it be good enough to last the next day? Also how would you store it- fridge or freezer

    Thanks for the recipe post, going to try it out right now. I usually see this made with potato oppose to oats. Will be interesting to see how the oat tuna cakes turnout. Thanks

    These were really simple to make and tasted great. They really tasted good by themselves or with a sauce. We will be making these again.
