Low Carb Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes


I was first inspired to make these delicious low carb Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes by Gordon Ramsey on Youtube just before Halloween last year. We were hosting a family get together, and a couple of those who were there were both pescetarian and couldn’t eat dairy. So we figured these would be perfect for them. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ

Spicy Tuna Fishcake Patties Lowcarb Keto

This recipe is so simple to make that it literally just takes a couple of minutes to prepare and equally as short time to cook. So it was perfect for us when we already had 10 other dishes to prepare.

These low carb spicy tuna fish cakes are east-asian inspired. There is a lot of flavour from the fish sauce, chillies and spring onions / scallions that comes through, but in no way is it over powering. In fact, I believe you could throw in some soy sauce or maybe some sesame seeds to bring the flavours even more out. Don’t let us be the judges of that, experiment with the recipe! ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ
