I use saltine crackers crushed up instead of bread always come out great.
Saltines are a great substitute for the bread!
I failed to mention, I put mine on a well-oiled broiler pan and grill them, they get a beautiful color and taste great (approx. 5 minutes each side). I also have added some bell pepper on my previous time, and that’s a great way to sneak in some veggies for kids with few teeth or picky eaters!
This is my second time with this recipe, so I can attest that the chilling really would help! I (accidentally) skipped that step this time, and the patties certainly want to fall to pieces as their cooking. I swapped for salmon this time, therefore I used 2TBSP lemon juice and I added some dried dill weed.
Added a little chopped sweet pepper and they are great!
Absolute failure- Patties didn’t firm up even after adding a further half a cup of breadcrumbs, fell apart in the pan.
Very good! I added garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin powder. The cumin was a great addition. Only has chives…the green onions would be better.
Very easy and tasty recipe
Loved it. Even people who don’t like tuna loved them
Great! Everyone in family liked them! Did not have any lemon zest. It was fine without but probably would have been better with.
Everything seems to be better with lemon zest, Renee! I have so many denuded lemons in the fridge. Time for lemonade.
Glad you liked this!
Absolutely delicious!!! Loved that it had a bit of spice and mustard taste. I also added dill to my mixture
These are delicious! I made them without egg and still great and stayed together
Pretty darn good. I only made small adjustment due to ingredients I had on hand: Chopped sweet peppers replaced chives. And of course as a true Marylander I had to add some Old Bay seasoning ;p
My mom used to make this. I used one can of boneless skinless salmon and one can of tuna. Used the recipe for measurements to teach my daughter how to make them. Added 1 tsp ground coriander and some nutmeg. Delicious! Use a lot of your recipes as guides because I grew up with similar dishes, but no written recipe. Thanks.
What can I replace the bread crumbs with as I dont have any bread?
Rolled oats work well as a binder. If they are old-fashioned oats, I like to break them up a bit in a food processor first. Just eyeball the amount, and let the mixture sit a bit so the oats absorb the moisture. Good luck!
I used cilantro instead of parsley, didn’t have bread so I used a 1/3 cup of oats mixed with peanut butter instead. I also chilled the patties in the freezer for 10 minutes prior to cooking. My family loved them, will be making this again for sure. Thanks for the great recipe.
Worked like a charm, great recipe!
My first time to your site, I got here by googling “tuna fish cakes”. Made these last night and they were delish! Definitely adding them to the regular recipe rotation. Thank you so much!
Can I chill for longer? I would like to cook 2 tonight and 2 tomorrow.
Yes, you may chill the patties longer. Or you can cook them all and freeze a few.
Delish! As usual. Your my recipe place.0
i made them, they were really good…. the only bad thing is they kept fallling apart in the pan, but i think its because i didnt let them chill. i was too hungry lol
