Fish is a big part of Mediterranean cuisine and is used in many of our dishes. During Passover, this dish is quick and easy to prepare. Serve it with rice, if your observance permits, or with a grain of your choosing.
2 (6 1/2 ounce) cans tuna or salmon,
drained and shredded
1/4 cup matzo meal
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
1 grated onion
1 minced garlic clove
Pinch of cumin
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly and shape into 10 flat cakes. Fry in hot vegetable oil until well browned on both sides.
1 small can tomato sauce
1 cup water
Juice of one lemon
Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour the sauce over the fish patties and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes, basting once or twice. ì
