Tuna Cakes Recipe

I found this blog, Healthy = Happy the other week and have found it quite inspiring to get healthier. My eating habits aren't the best and I need to start working out. Beach and pool season is right around the corner afterall! The other night I made these Tuna Cakes and my boyfriend LOVED them! It is super easy too!

  • 3 cans (6 ounces each) tuna in olive oil, drained and flaked
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped, plus sprigs for garnish
  • 1/3 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 jalapeno chile (ribs and seeds removed), finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, stir together tuna, egg, cilantro, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and jalapeno. Mix gently until ingredients just hold together.
  2. Using a packed 1/3-cup measure of tuna mixture per patty, shape into 8 cakes.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium. Working in batches if necessary, cook cakes until golden brown and crisp on the outside, about 2 minutes per side. Serve hot, accompanied by salsa, and garnish with cilantro sprigs
I put the tuna cakes on potato rolls, added some tartar sauce and tomato. These are delicious!
