I have never understood why people hate tuna. Yeah, it smells weird to some people, I get that. But to me, it is delicious and full of nutrients! (Just don’t eat too much at one time). When I was younger, tuna sandwiches were a staple in my school lunch diet. I’ve been experimenting with tuna cakes for a while, and then it dawned on it- FLOUR. Adding some sort of flour makes the biggest difference.
The trick to these is the coconut flour. Coconut flour, I have found, is the holy grail of holding food together. It also gives added fiber, which is always a plus, considering how many people struggle to get their daily fiber requirements. Coconut flour, if you did not know, is a paleo approved flour, which makes this recipe paleo. I am not paleo, but I do enjoy dabbling (is that the word?) in the art of paleo cooking. It’s definitely different, but when a recipe works out, it can be delicious!
I love adding these to salads and meals, as they add a ton of protein and flavor. They’re extremely filling, and is defiantly a two person serving. Plus, they can make a great meal when serving multiple people. With that being said, lets get started!
INGREDIENTS (Serves two):
1 egg white
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp olive oil, for cooking
In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix together. Pre-heat your stove to a medium heat and add the oil for cooking. Once the stove is ready, form the tuna mixture into four patties. Place them on the stove (I recommend doing two at a time to avoid flipping disasters) and flatten them down to further create the patty shape. Let sit for a few minutes, and once ready, flip the patty. Let that side sit for a few minutes, and then transfer to a plate. Repeat until all of the mixture is done, and then serve as desired!
