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
Great tuna recipe. Didn’t have bread so used half the amount of breadcrumbs and used flax egg as I don’t eat eggs. Thought they would be bland but they tasted of more. Will definitely be made again
WOW! Made these for dinner tonight and they were amazing! Also the homemade tartar sauce! Keep up the good work, Elise, THANKS!
It was great!! I substituted dry oatmeal instead of bread crumbs for a gf (gluten free) option. To avoid the fridge time, I also omitted the oil and hot sauce from the recipe; Instead I mixed Mayo with Sriracha for dipping sauce. Frying them in butter in a Cast Iron skillet- good call!.
The best recipe for canned tuna. Wow!!!!! My family loved it. So easy., had all the ingredients.
This recipe is absolutely wonderful! I had to adjust the recipe some because I didn’t have every ingredient. I used a white onion and dried chives, apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice (didn’t have any), and I made some honey mustard with local honey and yellow mustard in place of dijon mustard because I did not have that either. I also had to use dry parsley instead of fresh, two medium eggs because did not have large eggs, and 3/4 cup of bread crumbs instead of 1/2. Oh, also used 2 tablespoons water from tuna can and about 2 teaspoons olive oil. I was so worried about how they would turn out but they were absolutely delicious! I put the patties in the freezer for about 10 minutes and they turned out perfect! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe! I will definitely continue using this recipe!
