  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp Chile powder or a Chile lime seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Sliced Green Onions or Diced Red Onions
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • About 1/2 cup breadcrumbs for dipping the cakes

  • Chipotle Crema for dipping
  • 1 tbsp honey


  • Mix together the tuna, salt, Chile powder or seasoning, black pepper, green onions, cilantro, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, egg and lime juice until ingredients are nicely incorporated.
  • Form 6-8 cakes, about 3 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches thick. Toss them in breadcrumbs and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Heat a skillet over medium low heat and add enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet. When the oil is hot place 3-4 cakes in the skillet and brown on each side. About 1-2 minutes per side. Watch the heat as the oil gets hot quickly and can burn the tuna cakes. When the cakes are done transfer to a paper towel lines plate.
  • To make the dipping sauce, add one chipotle in adobo, juice of half a lime, 1 tablespoon honey and 1/2 cup mayonnaise to the bowl of a food processor. Blend until the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Serve the tuna cakes warm with dipping sauce and enjoy!
