There is thin-sliced tuna, and then there is tuna tuna. Apparently, tuna is a frightening prospect to some because of the threat of unknown mercury levels. Recently, Safe Catch reached out and offered me a sample of their product which guarantees that every fish included in their tuna is mercury tested. So if you are a pregnant lady– this tuna is for you!
Mom, the major tuna-lover in the family, tried out the following Tuna Cakes recipe.
My Mom felt that since these were a classic coconut flavor, they would benefit from cilantro and lime. Plus she added 1/4 cup of sourdough bread crumbs to the recipe included with the tuna box.
She also made a yummy saffron sauce to go with these:
1/2 cup Mayo
2 T Creme Fraiche
pinch of saffron
2 teaspoons of Siracha sauce
Mom says “the tuna is beautiful, sort of looks like a halibut upgrade in the can, not pink like cat food grocery store tuna. I may be spoiled, now.”
