Meal Prep: Tuna Cakes


How about a protein packed lunch you can make in one batch for the whole week?

How about a recipe with ingredients you probably have at home?

Sound good? Sounds like our own tasty tuna cakes!

(Okay, maybe you don’t have flax seed, but you should start now.)



3 (150g) cans of albacore tuna, in water

2 omega-3 eggs

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard

2 Tablespoons of flax seeds, minced

1 Tablespoon of fresh dill, minced; or 1 teaspoon dried dill

a dash black pepper

2 Tablespoons of olive oil



Drain the tuna and flake it into a medium sized bowl. Add the eggs, lemon, Dijon, flax, dill and pepper. Mix well.

In a large skillet, place the olive oil over medium heat. Form the tuna mixture into 8 patties. Flatten each patty onto the skillet and cook for 3 minutes per side.
