Foodie Friday – Tuna Cakes

Since the drive thru value meal is not an option for you (your standards are way too high for that!), here’s a quick and cost effective meal that delivers both in taste and nutrition. Serve with some plain Greek yogurt mixed with lemon juice and fresh chopped dill. Servings: 8

Here’s what you need:

  • 3 (5oz) cans albacore tuna, in water
  • 2 omega-3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons flax seeds, ground
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill, minced; or 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • dash black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  1. Drain the tuna and flake into a medium size bowl. Add the eggs, lemon, Dijon, flax, dill and pepper. Mix well.
  2. In a large skillet place the olive oil over medium heat. Form the tuna mixture into 8 patties. Flatten each patty onto the skillet and cook for 3 minutes per side.
