Tuna Cakes

This recipe is perfect for those nights you get home late and have no fresh meat thawed out in the fridge for a good dinner, and it’s Paleo-friendly.

Tuna Cakes

1 can good quality tuna (Wild Planet)
1 egg
1 medium carrot, diced
1 tbsp parsley, chopped finely
1 tbsp almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp mustard (I used honey mustard)
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
Pinch cayenne powder
Salt and pepper to taste

·         Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.  Form mixture into 2 patties.

·         Heat oil over medium-high heat and cook the patties for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Flip carefully to avoid breaking them. Serve immediately.

·         Sauce (optional): Mayonnaise, mustard, sriracha
