Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine tuna, eggs, shallot, garlic, parsley, coconut aminos, ginger, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes, sea salt and black pepper. Mix until ingredients are well incorporated.
  2. Form mixture into 8 equal sized patties. Place the patties in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the patties to the pan.
  4. Fry the tuna cakes for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Use caution as you are flipping them over as they are very delicate and will crumble apart easily.
