Dinner does not always need to be something extravagant and time consuming to make. During the week, I always try to have a couple of nights where it's a quick fix for dinner- and still low-carb/high-fat deliciousness!
Tonight-- it was my spin on Salmon Patties-- Tuna Cakes!
Here is my tuna cake recipe.
What you will need:
2- 12 oz. cans of Tuna (I use tuna packed in water)
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1 - Egg
3- TBSP of Dijon mustard
1/2 cup of Mozzarella Cheese (you can use pretty much any cheese-- it just helps bind the cakes and adds a nice flavor)
1/2 shallot- diced fine
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl combine all the above ingredients and mix well.
Using medium high temperature-- heat up butter or oil of your choice (I used coconut oil) in large skillet.
Take portions of the tuna and pack into a ball (like you would a hamburger patty)
Press tuna cake into the skillet to desired thickness and cook each side for at least 3-5 min. (remember, there is raw egg in there-- so you want to cook thoroughly) or until you feel they are cooked throughout.
This should make 4-5 Tuna Cakes (depending on how large or small you make them).
Add a nice veggie side and you have a great LCHF dinner!
