Crave-Worthy Crispy Pan-Seared Tuna Cakes Recipe
These Delicious, Crispy Pan-Seared Tuna Cakes Are Simple & Healthy
Canned tuna is one of those ingredients that everyone has in their pantry, but they’re not quite sure what to do with it.
After all, there’s only so many tuna sandwiches you can eat before you swear the stuff off forever, right?
And unfortunately… there aren’t many other popular recipes out there that feature canned tuna.
(I tried to make DIY sushi with canned tuna once… and let me tell you… I started out with the best intentions, but I’m NEVER making that again! I’m leaving sushi-making to the experts—who have a lot more to work with than canned tuna!)
But when you DO find a recipe you like that features canned tuna… it’s a big win!SPECIAL: Researcher Discovers The “Million-Year-Old” Diet That Allows This Tribe To Stay Slim & Healthy… Even While Eating Sugar
That’s because canned tuna is pretty well-known for being an inexpensive food… and it’s shelf stable too, so you can stock up and keep it on-hand. Plus, it’s really good for you!
Even better when you aren’t slathering the good-for-you tuna in store-bought mayo… which not only isn’t great for you, but also masks the natural taste of the tuna.
So when you have a delicious recipe like these crispy pan-seared tuna cakes… which highlights the tuna rather than smothering it… you can fully enjoy the tuna and all of its health benefits.
These tuna cakes are the perfect protein to pair alongside some sliced tomatoes or leaves of romaine lettuce, don’t you agree? They use rolled oats instead of bread crumbs to help boost its fiber and nutrient profile, too.SPECIAL: These 3 Delicious Smoothie Recipes Are Specially Designed To Burn Off More Fat… So You Lose More Weight
(Plus, I like how these pan-seared tuna cakes get nice and crispy… rather than soggy, which is how my tuna sandwiches usually turn out.)
As long as you don’t eat it too many times per week (gotta watch out for that mercury!), you can totally work this fish into your diet. And what better way to do it than with these scrumptious tuna cakes?
Here’s how to do it:
FTH’s Crispy Pan-Seared Tuna Cakes Recipe
- 2 5-oz cans of tuna
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp garlic powder
1) Heat up a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Drain tuna and add to a mixing bowl.
2) Add eggs, oats, and mustard to tuna mixture. Combine, then add black pepper and garlic powder.
3) Form the mixture into cakes. I suggest making them about the size of the palm of your hand, but feel free to adjust the size as you like.
4) Cook over medium heat until golden brown and crispy on each side. Remove from heat. Serve over crisp romaine lettuce and with a dash of lemon juice, if desired.
How Eating More Tuna Cakes (And Other Protein-Rich Foods) Can Help You Burn More Fat & Lose More Weight…
For such a simple recipe, these pan-seared tuna cakes pack a TON of nutrients! (And the gourmet-level taste is a serious crowd pleaser…)
You have fiber from the oats… omega-3 fatty acids from the tuna… and PROTEIN.
One 5-oz can of tuna contains over 35 grams of protein!
You may not have thought of it this way, but it’s actually one of the ultimate superfoods for health and weight loss.
Protein is what your body uses to repair any injuries… to build new muscle & tissue… and did you know that even your DNA is made of protein?
That’s because eating more protein helps your body burn more fat (instead of holding onto it & storing it on your thighs… arms… belly… and rear-end).
The science on this is really clear. In fact, one study found that people who ate just 15-30% more protein on a daily basis burned 441 MORE calories every day.
So yes, protein really is THAT important if you want to slim down and stay healthy!
(Plus, who doesn’t want a weight loss plan that involves eating MORE?)
