"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

potato, peeled and cubed
2 (6 ounce) cans
dry breadcrumbs, or as needed
1 1/2 teaspoons
salt and pepper to taste
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!
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.
I used an albacore tuna and that was a mistake. They were very dry and fell apart in my pan. Don't get me wrong, they were DELICIOUS!! But I'll use tuna that is more moist the next time.
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! :)
Made this for evening meal tonight. Very different from the usual fried tuna that my mother made. Next time I will cut back on the Dijon mustard and Garlic powder. And eliminate the cayenne pepper. Too spicy for us old folks. It also took quite a bit more olive oil before they were browned. Otherwise a nice change from the usual fare.
