More About This Recipe

  • I have great memories of my mother’s cooking during Lent. I would get home from school and the whole house would smell like fish, lentils, sautéed shrimp and veggies. For 40 days my mother would treat us to a variety of meatless entrees, my favorites being shrimp broth, pipian with nopalitos and tuna patties. Tuna patties are made with simple ingredients and taste delicious. In this recipe, I pair them with a spicy chipotle sauce that adds an extra kick of flavor. Give them a try this Lent season, I guarantee they will be in your dinner menu year-round!
