Tuna Cakes

Tuna Cakes


The quickest fish cake you will ever make! These come together very easily and can be dressed up with chipotle mayo, tartar sauce, Russian dressing, Tapatio, or just a bit of mayo and lemon. If you want to be sure your patties do not fall apart, try shaping the patties as directed and then letting them sit in the refrigerator for an hour. (I did not find this necessary). This recipe is adapted from the Kraft website.
