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!

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).

This was one of my grama's standby recipes when I was a little girl and is her version of SOS ('Stuff on a Shingle' but she used a different word for 'stuff' - tee hee). And before anyone thinks that it's offensive using grama's recipe title, please note that she lived in a trailer park and had a sense of humor. I simply must recommend good old fashioned 'Wonder Bread' for this recipe - LOL.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 2 (5 oz.) cans of tuna, drained
  • 1/2 (14 oz.) can of peas, drained, or more if desired
  • 4 slices white bread, toasted
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Melt butter in pan over medium heat, whisk in flour to make the roux, whisk in milk a little at a time and continue stirring until sauce thickens.

Bring to a boil, add tuna and peas and cook until heated through, gently stirring occasionally.

Spoon evenly over each slice of toast, season with salt and pepper and serve.

If your sauce becomes too thick, simply add a wee bit more milk. If sauce is not thick enough, add about a half teaspoon of cornstarch.

Turn a can of tuna into delicious fish cakes. This recipe is both easy and economical. The fish cakes can be served as a light snack on its own. It could also be served with a green salad and potato chips, which would turn it into a complete meal. The fish cakes are very flavorsome, even though it has a low salt level and gluten free flour.

To help your family get more seafood in their diet, substitute tuna for the meat in spaghetti sauce. Using tuna packed in water, drained, will not change the flavor of the dish and the kids won't be any the wiser. Easy and cheap, too.
