                   Tuna Cornbread Cakes Recipe

If you like tuna fish and are looking for a new way to serve it - you will love this recipe for Tuna Cornbread Cakes. They resemble crab cakes but call for pre-packaged light tuna chunks which make for quick and easy prep. Serve cakes with homemade Lemon Aïoli for a flavorful condiment or dipping sauce.

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • (6-oz.) package buttermilk cornbread mix
  • 2/3 cup milk 
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 
  • green onions, thinly sliced
  • large eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • (5-oz.) aluminum foil pouches herb-and-garlic-flavored light tuna chunks
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Lemon Aïoli

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Stir together cornbread mix and 2/3 cup milk. Pour batter into a lightly greased 8-inch square pan.
  2. 2. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack 5 minutes or just until warm.
  3. 3. Stir together mayonnaise and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. 4. Crumble cornbread to equal 2 cups. Reserve remaining cornbread for another use. Fold cornbread crumbs and tuna chunks into mayonnaise mixture until well blended. Shape tuna mixture into 8 (3- to 3 1/2-inch) patties.
  5. 5. Melt 3 Tbsp. butter with vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tuna patties, and cook, in batches, 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown; drain on paper towels. Serve cakes with Lemon Aïoli.
