Tuna cakes are easy, affordable and nutritious. They are substantial and filling. Tuna cakes are the perfect meatless weeknight dinner!
I make these tuna cakes for dinner about once a week. They are an excellent option for those nights when you just don’t feel like cooking an elaborate meal.
We are a family of four. Two of us love fish, one of us tolerates them, and the Picky Eater won’t touch them. But she loves these tuna cakes!

I like to serve these tuna patties with a side of a big green salad. It’s the perfect meatless-yet-low-carb dinner!
- 2 (4 oz) cans tuna in water, well-drained
- ½ cup quick-cooking oats (or almond flour)
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons olive oil for frying
- In a medium bowl, use a fork to mix together the tuna, oats or almond flour, eggs, yogurt, salt, pepper and parsley.
- Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, about 4 minutes.
- Measuring ¼ cup of the mixture for each cake, fry the tuna cakes 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Serve immediately.
