Need a frugal, healthy meal in a hurry? These zesty tuna patties fit the bill!
You will need:
Four 5oz cans tuna, drained
4oz cracker crumbs or breadcrumbs (one sleeve of saltines)
1 medium pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 tsp minced garlic cloves
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
First lightly sautee the onion and pepper. Add in the minced garlic and cook a few seconds longer.
Mix the cracker crumbs, parmesan cheese, and dry spices together until well blended.
Add in all other ingredients.
Mix well…until it looks like a paste.
Shape into patties and fry a little oil. Be sure and flip it halfway through. They will be golden brown on both sides when done.
Serve with rolls and veggies and you have a quick, healthy meal!

Your tuna cakes look great. I make them, but I have never added the flavorful things like parm, garlic and cayenne pepper. I can’t wait to try this next time I make them. Sometimes we put the tuna patties on a bun with tartar sauce and a few spinach leaves for something different. Anyway, thanks for the great idea.
I like the idea of serving them in a bun with tartar sauce and spinach…I need to try that! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
