Started off with draining the tuna thru a strainer to get all the liquid out and then mixed in one lightly beaten egg, the Old Bay seasoning, quarter cup of mayo and at hubby's request, half a diced sweet onion. Added in the bread crumbs and prepped the skillet.
I for went the chilling of the mixture as it looked like it was firmer then the previous experiment. So I again fried them up:
Again they turned out dark brown, but delicious and served with a salad, made a very nice dinner. 3 cakes and the salad was very filling:
Now as a substitute for crab cakes, not even close. Not even on this continent. I would never recommend this to replace crab cakes with. I would however definitely recommend using the fake crab as a good substitute.
This makes a very yummy FISH cake and will definitely be going into my permanent rotation since it was good and canned tuna is one of the fish hubby will eat on a regular basis and I need all the yummy canned tuna recipes I can find since I can only handle tuna sandwiches for so long LOL!
