Tuna Cakes


Tuna Cakes with Wasabi Tartar Sauce

What is better than crab cakes? TUNA CAKES, especially when dipped in wasabi tartar sauce, I am telling you it is delicious. The best part is the fact that it is so easy to make as I just used canned tuna, shhh it will be our little secret.


2 cans of tuna, drained

1 small onion, finely chopped

½ cup bread crumbs

1 tablespoon parsley, chopped

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

1 egg

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

1½ tablespoon mayonnaise

1 tablespoon ketchup

Pinch of chili powder



Olive oil to fry the tuna cakes

For the wasabi tartar sauce:

½ cup mayonnaise

¼ cup sour cream

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon lime juice

½ tablespoon soy sauce

5 cornichons, finely chopped

Wasabi, to taste

White pepper


For the tartar sauce, mix all the ingredients in a bowl; be careful with the wasabi, you should taste a few times to see how spicy you would prefer it. Transfer to a serving dish and set aside.

In the same bowl used for the sauce add all the ingredients for the tuna cakes and mix until combined. With your hands shape the mixture into patties. In a pan heat the olive oil over medium heat and start frying the tuna cakes, in batches, until golden brown on each side. The cakes will probably need about 3-4 minutes per side.

Serve the tuna cakes right away with the wasabi tartar sauce. Enjoy!
