I’ll admit – Tuna Fish Cake Sandwich, isn’t at all an appetizing name. But if you’re a fan of tuna sandwiches this is a must try!
It’s packed with green onion, water chestnuts, jalapeno and topped off with an Old Bay Aioli that is amazing!
I got inspiration for this recipe after seeing a video from Gordon Ramsay’s Fish Cakes using canned tuna. My take on this is slightly different, but makes for the perfect way to change up a tuna sandwich!
It’s got a bit a heat from a jalapeno, and amazing texture with a little water chestnut, green onion.
I’m all about this Old Bay Aioli. It adds the perfect addition to turning this into a sandwich!
These tuna fish cakes also freeze well after cooking. So throw leftovers in the freezer, then reheat in the oven to make a quick lunch!
Eaten by itself, or paired with a nice crunchy bread that’s toasted with some arugula lettuce This tuna fish cake makes an amazing quick tuna sandwich that’s loaded with flavor!
