Savor Every Bite Of Life!

These yummy Tuna Cakes with Jalapeño and Cilantro are low on carbs and calories and big on flavor! 

If spicy isnt your thing, just omit the the Sriracha and cayenne.

Directions

  • In a large strainer, in the sink over a large bowl, add the 5 cans of tuna and let them drain while you prepare the following ingredients.
  • Sauté the onions for about 8 minutes in a sauté pan, until translucent. Set aside and let cool.
  • While the onions are cooking, in a large mixing bowl, add the mayo, lemon juice, salt and pepper and whisk till combined. Then add cilantro and peppers to the mixture.
  • Add the tuna, beaten eggs, cooked onions and breadcrumbs, and mix gently until ingredients just hold together.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil on high for about a minute, then turn it down to medium high.
  • Working in batches, using a packed one-third cup measure of tuna mixture per cake, cook cakes until golden brown and crisp on the outside, about 3 minutes per side. You may need to add a tablespoon of oil to the pan between batches. Serve hot, or warm over a simple arugula or kale salad. Recipe makes 14-16 patties.
  • Whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
