Spicy Tuna Fishcakes

Most people use canned tuna to prepare salads. Some people even eat it straight from the can. Today, we want to show you a very tasty way to cook canned tuna. It’s called spicy tuna fishcakes*.

We use canned tuna in a spring water for this recipe. However, you can also use fresh tuna. When you use the canned tuna, you need to drain the liquid out, otherwise, the fishcake won’t hold together.

For the seasoning, we’d like to use all fresh ingredients such as ginger, chives, coriander, red chili and lemon juice to make the tuna cakes nice and fragrant. If you don’t like spicy food, just leave out the chili.

These tuna croquettes can be served with our special lemon dip, which we will show you how to make below.
