Tuna Cakes


Earlier this week I posted a recipe for crab cakes and salmon cakes. You know how they say good things come in threes? This recipe is for tuna cakes. Does anyone have a favorite? Mine personally are the crab cakes.


Although I love salmon, I really prefer my salmon grilled.


Let me know your thoughts below!





2 eggs

1/3 cup mayonnaise

1/3 cup chopped celery

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons Dijon type of mustard

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 3/4 pounds tuna meat (canned or cooked)

2 cups of bread crumbs

4 tablespoons of butter for frying




In a bowl beat the eggs. Add the mayonnaise, celery, salt and pepper, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix until smooth. Then add the tuna meat and bread crumbs and mix.


Shape the mixture into tuna cakes, about half inch thick. If they’ll be served as appetizer the cakes should be small and you’ll get about 16. If they’ll be served as the main course of the meal then the cakes will be bigger and you’ll get about 8.


Lightly coat each cake with bread crumbs. Heat the pan then add the butter, over medium-low heat. When the butter starts to sizzle add the tuna cakes to the pan.


Fry until light brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Serve with tartar sauce or your favorite sauce.
