Thanks to stuffing mix, these simply divine tuna cakes stay crispy golden on the outside and deliciously simple on the inside.

Ratings & Reviews



Last time I checked, tuna was not a vegetable.


As I mixed together the ingredients I had my doubts, but I was pleasantly surprised at the turn out! Quick, easy and tasty!


We absolutely loved it! my toddler wouldn't make tuna and after this she loved it, i will do them again!


I did refridgerate them first so that helped keep their shape. With being formed into patties and fried, one would expect to have the insides a little more firmer rather than mush..It was like eating burger with tuna and mayo inside, I think skip the carrots and relish and add more cheese instead.



Loved it. Very easy and delicious.


I added a little extra water and stirred with a fork, then let it set in the fridge a few hours. The extra water was absorbed by the stuffing and they stayed together very well. I split the batch and did half in a pan and the other half in the oven as suggested. I packed it in and they came out great! 350 about 25-30min. Will make in the oven again!


These are delish....! Even people who are not fond of fish really enjoy these. They are light and flavourful and easy to make and they are one of my favourite meals in the summertime.


they werew alright, fell apart easily and didn't hold much shape, definatly going to try and refrigerate first next time. Best advice i can offer USE A NON STICK PAN.


I refridgerated for an hour and added green onions. Very good. Even my 1 year old ate them!


My family loves these fish cakes! However, you need a pan that doesn't stick and slow heat to prevent them from falling apart or sticking. But it is worth the effort to watch my teenager wolf down something that is healthy and ask for more!


fell aapart and stuck to the skillet. Did not look or taste appetizing. will not make again.


Easy way to get serve fish for supper


Super easy & kids loved them, tasted great! I will make them again.


This recipe makes a LOT of cakes, but it was simple and they tasted great! I added 2 eggs to the mixture, and after mixing I refrigerated it 10 mins., as per the instructions, then make the cakes and refrigerated them for at least an hour. Cook on a med-high heat and don't turn too early...then they don't fall apart.




I made it and it tasted good, but mine did not take the shape of the ones in the picture, I had a hard time keeping them stuck together, they fell apart as I cooked them, so looked like a pile of mush, not very appealing, but like I said they did taste good.


I took the egg suggestion and added two eggs instead of only one. I scooped into greased muffin tins then flattened a bit with bottom of cup. They stayed together and baked well for 25 min at 350 degrees


I love tuna, and these tuna cakes were great!!!! So easy and great flavor, I had no problem with them staying together, letting them sit in the fridge before molding is key.


Tuna fish cake Did not stick together did everything recipe called for . End result I broiled them very tasty. I would give this recipe a second chance.


I substituted tune for flakes of chicken.. it worked really well and was a huge hit with the kids!!


My Family loved this recipe and it was easy to make. I served it with a toss salad for a well rounded meal.


I made this for our family of four......we had plenty of tuna mixutre left that i din't cook into patties so we later had in rolled up in a tortilla.....made a very tasty,quick and healthy lunch that my kids loved.


Tried the helpful tip of keeping in the fridge for an hour and they still fell apart. they also stuck to the pan even on lower heat with cooking spray. Big mess and not easy. Will NOT make again


Easy, cheap and yummy!


I really enjoyed this recipe. I changed the recipe, and they held together very well, I used 1/2 cup water, no relish, approx. 3/4 cup carrot, as well as an egg slightly beaten. I also refridgerated the patties for 4 hrs.


My children won't eat tuna, but cleaned their plates the night I made this. I sprayed muffin pans with cooking spray and baked the cakes in the oven for 25 minutes.


It's nice and moist. I think you could substitute salmon or crab pieces if you wished.


Hi there, I love fish and I am always looking for new recipes to introduce to my hubby of 1 year. I added 1 egg beaten, rolled them up in tight ovall shapes and cooked them slowly in the frying pan, yummy! He loved them so did I. I also added a little salt & pepper.



I found the cakes very good in taste. We really pushed the tuna mix down into the measuring cup when measuring out for our cakes and cooking at a slightly higher temperature then suggested really helped to keep the cakes together better.


Very hard to keep together and once cooked all I could taste was the stuffing mix, very overpowering. I won't be making these again.


They fell apart a bit, but these were so delicious and easy!


I tried this first at my friends place. She baked in oven in muffin cups, came out great. I tried them tonight and fried them like recipe called for, they were great. My adult son was not too sure when I told him I was making them. But guess what he loved them. I did find they fell apart a little when I was turning to other side but still a keeper for sure.




The fish cakes were great tasting and the kids loved them. I did change how they were cooked. It was much easier to spray a pan for the oven and cook all the cakes at once instead of cooking 1 or 2 at a time. I found they fell apart on the stove top, but they stayed together and were nice and brown in the oven.


My kids LOVED them and so did my husband. It was a GREAT way to get fish into their bodies and I even loved it. I did however make a change with using mayo and instead of grated carrots I substituted with pureed veggies (carrots) and lessoned the amount of water by a 1/4 cup. Great way to sneak those veggies in!!


These were incredibly easy to make and very delicious. My whole family (even the tuna haters) really enjoyed it.




These Tuna Fish Cakes were a huge hit with my family. I had never made tuna cakes before and I found them simple to prepare. They are high on flavor and low on prep time. I plan to make them again and experiment a bit with other vegetables and spices. Thank You for yet another great croud pleaser.



Yummy!!! Kids love it!!!


Very good, one of the best fish cakes we have ever had


Pretty good although I would omit the relish next time around, didn't like it in there also our dogs loved them as well.



tried this and it was very good. The hint to refrigerate before making into patties is a must, otherwise it's hard to keep together.


I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this receipe. You don't even taste the tuna that much. It is a very tasty meal.


I don't like fish cakes too much but I loved these. I added an egg to the batter to make the cakes stick together.


Easy, fast and delicious. In order to get the results follow recipe to a T. It won't work if you use oil in the pan.


My oldest son and I loved this, My husband and younger children didn't care for it (my 5 year old asked if he could eat spinach instead!)



so yummy!



easy!tasty!love it! i did add an egg, so it would hold better!


absolutely delicious . nice and moist


This recipe tastes great. The cakes are a little soft and want to come apart when turned if not careful, but other than that, it's a good recipe.


Works great with ham as well.


very very tastey. but i couldn't get the cakes to stick together. it ended up more like a fish-hash. i also made a couple of substitutions. instead of mayo i used low-fat ranch dressing, and instead of relish, i finely chopped up some green olives. added a nice saltiness to it!


This recipe has a 4 star taste, but I could only give it 3 stars because the cakes fell apart and tended to stick to my pan, irregardless of how much oil I used. I ended up adding an egg to the mixture with the remaining mixture in an attempt for it to stick together better. My children all loved it, but perhaps next time I'd use less water and mayo and see if they stick together better



Fast, easy and delicious. A hit with the whole family!


Didnt hold together... at all... probably too much water... or should add an egg


Very tasty. However, I could not get the patties to stick together. Some of them fell apart in the pan.


The best Salmon Fish cakes you will ever will each



These are very yummy. My husband is looking forward to having one on a bun for lunch. I wondered about adding egg but I found that if I pressed the mixture into the ice cream scoop with a spoon and then put the cakes in the pan the cakes held together much better.


This is an excellent recipe and very delicious. Company was excited about this one. Easy to make and serve with salad.


Really good quick and tasty dinner. I prefer the green onion and swiss cheese version


I made this for supper last night. The taste was awesome but they fell part in the fry pan. I think I will put an egg in the next time to see if they hold together better.


These fish cakes were a sensation. They were just as tasty when I re-heated them. They will be a staple in my kitchen - and we are very fussy about foods that taste good!


Great taste. Easy to do. Can they be frozen?


This was so easy and awesome. My family loved it.


i make this all the time, it is so easy!Tastes great too!!
