Paleo Tuna Cakes Recipe

Paleo Tuna Cakes



  1. In a pot, add the sweet potato and cover it completely with cold water.
  2. Place onto a stove and bring to a boil. Cook until the sweet potato is tender. Roughly 8 minutes.
  3. Once cooked, drain the sweet potato, and allow to cool slightly.
  4. In a bowl, add the sweet potato and mash it until smooth.
  5. Next, add the tuna, egg, lemon zest, almond flour, dill, salt, and pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  6. Shape into patties. I find that a 1/3 cup measurement will make nicely sized patties. Try to keep them roughly 2-3 cm (0.7-1.1 in) thick, so they hold together.
  7. In a pan over medium heat, add the coconut oil.
  8. Once the oil is hot, add the tuna cakes.
  9. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Serve & Enjoy.
