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 set to high heat 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 and the salt & pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  6. Shape into patties, and 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 heated, add the tuna cakes.
  9. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Once cooked, serve & enjoy.
