Tuna Cakes with Dijon Sauce are an easy and delicious way to use up a common pantry staple…canned tuna! Great for lunch or dinner fresh or served the next day, Tuna Cakes should be added to your weekly meal rotation!



2 cans of tuna packed in water

¼ cup chives, chopped (fresh or freeze-dried)

¾ cup canned pumpkin

⅓ cup almond flour

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cumin

½ tsp black pepper

1 egg

For the Sauce:

3 Tbsp dijon

Combine all ingredients for tuna cakes in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and spritz with cooking spray or oil.

Divide tuna cakes into 12 portions.

Cook 3-4 min per side in greased skillet.  I can usually cook two at a time in the pan, but it depends on the size.

In a small bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients.
