Quick Weeknight Dinner: Tuna Cakes

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

I don't mean to brag but my tuna cakes are the best thing I know how to make. They are simple to make and you don't even think that a simple can of tuna can be so delicious and tasty. Take a look:

Ingredients (makes 8 cakes):
2 cans (5 oz. each) tuna in water, drained
1 white onion, minced
1 carrot, peeled and diced really small
1 egg
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs, plus more for breading
1/4 tablespoon paprika
Salt and pepper
Oil for frying

In a bowl, add the tuna, onion, carrot, egg, bread crumbs, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix everything by hand really well until everything is well incorporated. In a shallow dish, add the bread crumbs, set aside. Start forming your tuna cakes, dip them in the bread crumbs making sure they get completely covered. Once all the cakes are formed and covered with bread crumbs, heat a couple inches of oil on medium/high. When the oil is nice and hot, gently put the cakes into the pot, let it get crispy and golden in color then flip and let it cook on other side. Place them in plate with paper towel to absorb some of extra the oil. Serve warm and enjoy!

I make a really similar recipe with crab, but it's almost exactly the same! My family loves them!
