Tuna Cakes with Fresh Tomato Salsa {Giveaway!}*


Thanks to Tuna Casserole and Tuna Surprise in school cafeterias in the 90′s, nobody likes Tuna anymore. I get that those lunches were scary…but it wasn’t the Tuna’s fault! It was probably fear of the woman serving it…with her drawn on sharpie eyebrows and missing fingers  –or was that just my creepy lunch lady?!

In spite of all those bad tuna memories, I LOVE tuna. I could eat it everyday, if I wasn’t terrified of getting Mercury poisoning. I love tuna salad, tuna melts and this weird tuna casserole thing with bread that I found in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. But my absolute favorite tuna to eat, is the little Starkist packages that are Lemon Pepper flavored. I seriously have eaten 3 packs in a day…mercury poisoning be damned. ;)

So when Wasa asked if I was interested in doing a recipe for Superbowl, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. Tuna Cakes! I love that you can crush up Wasa crackers and have instant breadcrumbs with half the calories and double the fiber of normal breadcrumbs. And no they didn’t pay me to say that, they really are a great substitute for breadcrumbs!

When I was dreaming up my Tuna Cakes, I was trying to figure out a way to give them some extra umph while keeping them ass friendly. I knew I could keep the Tuna Cake itself healthy, but a sauce on top was tricky. A cream sauce would be delicious…but cream is totally evil. Eventually I thought of a Fresh Tomato Salsa with a few good squeezes of lime…

And I am happy to say, the result was awesome! The combination is delicious…and the lime really helps balance out all the flavors.  Plus, not gonna lie, I love that I get to have one giant Tuna Cake with a ton of delicious fresh salsa on top for only 182 calories! I know Superbowl is traditionally filled with tons of stick to your bones kind of foods…but for anyone hoping to still fit in their jeans on Monday morning, this is your answer!

 

Twists to making these Tuna Cakes party ready:

1. Make them into sliders! Turn these babies into the perfect appetizer by making them mini tuna cakes and wrapping them with a whole wheat bun.

2. Serve them in a pita and toss the fresh salsa right into the pita pocket. I bet they would be awesome with a drizzle of some homemade Tzatziki too!

3. Make them like mini crabcake appetizers, but serve them in mini bowls with the salsa piled on top.

4. Serve them as full out burgers. Best part about these, you can make them a day ahead and store them in the fridge. Or if you need even more time…you can make them and freeze them! Just thaw them out the day before the party in the fridge. Once people get hungry, a quick turn in the sauté pan will give you gorgeous healthy burgers before halftime is over!

Tuna Cakes with Fresh Tomato Salsa

Yield: 4 large Tuna Cakes

Recipe Note: Make your Fresh Tomato Salsa a couple hours ahead of the Tuna Cakes to allow time for the flavors to develop.

Ingredients:

Tuna Cake:
3 5oz cans Albacore Tuna (in water), drained and fluffed
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/3 cup crushed Wasa Light Rye crackers (appx 4 crackers)
2 tablespoons freshly minced parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons Jalapeno Tabasco (the green one), or to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
1 large egg, whisked
2 tablespoons olive oil

Fresh Tomato Salsa:
4 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
2 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

For the Tuna Cakes:
In a large bowl, mix together tuna, onion, crushed Wasa crackers, parsley, garlic, lime juice, mustard, and jalapeno Tabasco. Then add a little salt and pepper, stirring, and taste testing. Once you have reached your desired seasonings, stir in the egg.

Pat tuna mixture into patties, using 1/2 cup packed tuna for each patty. Set on wax paper.

To Freeze: Flash freeze Tuna Cakes, for 30 minutes, on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Then wrap each cake individually with plastic wrap and place in a ziplock bag. Freeze for up to 1 month (which is as long as I have tried, but I think they would be fine for up to 3 months). To thaw, place Tuna Cakes in fridge a day before you plan to use them. Once thawed, follow the instructions below.

Add 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large non-stick sauté pan, over medium heat. Add two Tuna Cakes to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove from pan and set on a paper towel covered plate to drain off any excess oil. Repeat entire process (including adding a second tablespoon of olive oil) to cook the remaining to Tuna Cakes.


For the Fresh Tomato Salsa:
Toss together tomatoes, yellow onion, green onions, parsley, lime juice, garlic salt and pepper. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for 2 hours before eating. This allows the flavors to develop, but of course you can eat it immediately if in a rush!

Top Tuna Cakes with Fresh Tomato Salsa and serve immediately!

    Hmm…I have always liked my name. I think by 13 I had grown out of this stage but before that I enjoyed having pretend names, usually when playing with friends. Vanessa was one I was a fan of…

    Love wasa! (But you can buy double packs for so much less in Norway. I miss those prices…)

    Oh these look amazing. Can’t wait to try them. I’ve never tried Wasa before. I know, travesty right?

    At 13 I would’ve renamed myself Morgan Ariana. It was the name I swore I’d name my first born before I realized I’d end up having a daughter just like me and my nerves couldn’t take it. Still liked the name though but would insist on not shortening it by calling me morg!

    Ahh, Neve Campbell’s character in Scream…Sidney. Loved it! In fact, it was the chosen name for my internet alter-ego. Ahh, the fun I had on AOL in those days!

    I wanted to be Kelly… from Saved by the Bell (not the other 90′s Kelly from Beverly Hills 90210 – ha!).

    Not entering…but love this tuna cake! You’re so right about the lunch ladies of yesterday. It took me a loooong time to be able to eat tuna again. Great choice for Wasa!

    My 13 y.o. self would be named Mary, after the main character in my favorite book. Oh to have time to read for pleasure again….those were the days. :)

    I wanted to be Stephanie. Actually, at about age 13, my mom told me I could legally change the actual spelling of my name from Ashley to Ashleigh. I’m so glad I didn’t!

    Jessica,

    A) You’re hilarious, “ass-friendly” made me laugh out loud and I got some crazy looks in the office.

    B) Everything on your blog looks delicious and I will be coming back. I got here because I love tuna as well.

    C) I’d consider it a favor if you’d give Wild Planet Tuna a try. We have more Omega 3 than the national brands and low mercury because our tuna is troll-caught from the North Pacific. Hope you say hi sometime http://www.wildplanetfoods.com

    Thanks!

    I know I’m too late for the giveaway (bummer) but I just wanted to let you know I made these tuna cakes for me and the hubby the other night and oh.my.goodness! They were awesome! And definitely a** friendly :) I didn’t have any Wasa crackers so I used crushed pita chips instead and they turned out great. I think I’ll try the Wasa next time though, just to compare. Thanks for the great recipe. The salsa was really great too and we ended up eating the rest of it with the leftover pita chips. Yummmmm

    I love tuna too! I almost always go for a tuna melt if it’s on the menu. I got burnt out on those tuna packs after eating them for months for lunch every day.
