I’ve been attempting to add some seafood to my family’s diet, and these little tuna cakes looked so appealing, that I tried them. We were not disappointed as they turned out so good.

Make into eight 3 1/2 inch patties and fry in your melted butter and oil mixture, over medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.

When they are finished cooking, let them drain on paper towels. Now, we ate these served plain with soup on the side, but My Recipes included a Lemon Aioli recipe that looks easy and scrumptious if you want to try it.
