Carol's Tuna Cakes with Lime Tarter Sauce

contest winner icon

Tuna cakes can be dry and lack flavor. I'm so proud of this recipe because it adds a moist flavorful taste for a quick healthy meal!

Ingredients:

  • 3 small or 2 large cans white albacore tuna, drained and flaked
  • 2 small green onions, chopped small
  • 1 thick ring sweet onion, chopped small
  • Ad
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 box cornbread mix (Jiffy is fine)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Directions:

Flake tuna in a large bowl. Set aside. In a small bowl, add next 5 ingredients and blend well. Add small bowl to tuna and blend. Slowly add in broth. Texture will be pretty thin. Add in cornbread mix, until texture is slightly stiff but not dry. Add egg and blend well. Fry in canola oil on medium heat, turning only once. Serve with Lime Tarter Sauce (recipe below).

Lime Tarter Sauce

  • 1/2 tsp. lime juice
  • dash of celery seed (optional)

Looks good! The lime tartar sauce calls for "pickle relish." Sweet relish? Or dill?

Sound wonderful! Also, love the idea of the cornmeal as I have always used breadcrumbs.

Suky, the relish is sweet relish. I apologize for that oversight, I should have clarified that!
