Tuna Cakes

5 – 5 oz cans of Albacore tuna

2 eggs slightly beaten

1 bunch of cilantro chopped

1/3 cup bread crumbs

4 tbsp mayo

1 ½ lemons freshly juiced

1 green pepper seeded and diced

1 onion diced

3-4 tbsp coconut oil

Salt and pepper to taste


Start by draining the cans of tuna in a strainer over a large bowl. Then set aside.

Over medium, heat in large skillet sauté the onions until they are soft.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayo, lemon juice, salt & pepper, cilantro and green peppers.

Add in the tuna, eggs and breadcrumbs and mix well.

Heat coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for a minute, then turn heat down to medium.

Using a batch process; measure out 1/3 cup of the tuna mixture to form a patty. Cook each cake about 3 minutes on both sides until golden brown and crisp on the outside. You may need a bit more oil.

The recipe makes 14 tuna cakes and will serve 7-10 for dinner. You can also make the patties smaller for an appetizer.
