Easy 30-Minute Tuna Cakes
These crispy tuna patties are paleo, gluten-free, and keto. They contain no breadcrumbs. Easy, affordable and delicious, it's the perfect weeknight dinner!
cans tuna in water
well-drained and flaked with a fork
avocado oil mayonnaise
minced fresh garlic
Diamond Crystal kosher salt
chopped fresh parsley
olive oil for frying*
Preheat oven to the "keep warm" setting (150-170 degrees F).
In a medium bowl, use a fork to mix together the tuna, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, eggs, kosher salt, black pepper and parsley.
Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Measuring ¼ cup of the mixture for each cake, fry the patties until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
Fry 4 patties at a time, keeping the cooked tuna cakes in a warm oven while you fry the second batch.
*You will use 4 tablespoons oil for frying, but the tuna cakes will only absorb about half that amount. Nutrition info reflects that.
Ideas for varying this recipe:
If you like your food spicy, try adding a teaspoon of hot pepper sauce to the mixture or a pinch of cayenne pepper.
It's very tasty to cook these patties in butter.
Chopped scallions are a nice addition - try using just ¼ cup parsley and adding ¼ cup of finely chopped scallions.
