Recipe by Raquel Teixeira
"Who needs crab and a deep fryer to enjoy these tasty delights. Tuna works great and a light pan searing does the job of cooking up this tasty treat without all the fat! Serve with hot sauce or mayonnaise."

Raquel these were super yummy! The only thing that I did change was I used saltines instead of bread crumbs because I was out and too lazy to make some. I love the addition of potato, it gave the cakes a great flavor! These were super simple and quick to make. Thanks for a great recipe that I will continue to use.
I felt that this recipe was just ok for me. I felt that it was lacking texture and flavor. I served to with a lemon caper sauce which did help. It really think this recipe has potential though. I will try it back again but next time I think I will add some black beans and corn to the mixture and serve it with a chipolte sauce overtop and see how that works
I made these the other night for dinner. They were excellent. The only change I made was to add 3 cloves of minced garlic in place of the garlic powder b/c I didnt know I was out of it. Even my kids who hate fish liked these. Thanks Raquel I will be making these again.
Great Recipe. I omitted the potato and used panko breadcrumbs instead. I also made a lemon aioli to go on the side for dipping. Very good dish with no complaints from the family nor leftovers!
Hey, I am the recipe submitter. This recipe was featured in the daily videos on Jan 8th, 2013 and I just want to confirm that video is made by AR and not by me, so if there are differences from what is actually written here, that is not my doing. Either way, have fun and play around with your ingredients! :)
Delicious with a few changes. I used thin-sliced scallions in place of onion. Used 2x finely crushed corn Chex in place of breadcrumbs to make it gluten-free. I also mixed in a little shredded cheddar cheese (yum). I refrigerated the mix for a while to make it easier to make patties with. Fried in a little butter, served with lemon juice on top and garlic aioli. Soooooo good!!.............................PS.
If you find them hard to work with, a couple things to keep in mind. Drain the tuna and potatoes thoroughly to remove all excess moisture. Also, refrigerate the mixture before cooking.
I loved this! I added about 1/4 cup shredded raw spinach leaves for some hidden veggies, and served with a little ketchup. Even my 19 month old daughter loved this and ate her entire tuna cake! Thank you for such a non "fishy" tasting tuna recipe.
AWESOME! This is my first review but I had to because this is a tasty inexpensive lazy dinner night type recipe. Added 1/2c. green onion, couple shakes hot sauce, heaping tbsp. Mayo for smooth consistency and I baked on foil lined cookie sheet sprayed with oil, at 350 for around 20-25 min...my husband told me I needed a raise because he isn't paying me enough. Used albacore tuna and had no problem at with dryness. Thanks Raquel
