Fast tuna patties with sweet chilli mayo

Ingredients (serves 4)
* 250g packet jasmine microwave rice
* 400g can tuna in brine, drained, flaked
* 3 green onions, trimmed, finely sliced
* 2 eggs, lightly beaten
* 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
* 1/4 cup vegetable oil
* 1/3 cup whole-egg mayonnaise
* 1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce salad leaves, to serve

1. Cook rice according to packet directions. Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly. Add tuna, onions and eggs. Mix to combine.
2. Divide mixture into 8 portions. Using hands, roll mixture into balls and flatten slightly. Place breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Add patties and turn to coat. Heat half the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Cook half the patties for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until golden. Drain on paper towel. Repeat with remaining oil and patties.
3. Combine mayonnaise and sweet chilli sauce in a small bowl. Serve patties with mayonnaise mixture and salad leaves.

Notes & tips
* Variation: You could replace the tuna with a 400g can salmon or flavoured tuna.
* Shortcut: Use leftover tuna patties and mayo for kids' lunch wraps with shredded lettuce leaves.
