Asian Tuna Cakes with Spicy Lime Mayo

Asian Tuna Cakes with Spicy Lime Mayo

These tuna cakes are indeed quick to throw together, the hands-on time is less than 10 minutes. Along with the tuna, scallions, cilantro, sesame oil and chili-garlic sauce are incorporated in the cakes to provide flavor. I think the original recipe suggested a wasabi mayo but that didn’t really appeal to me, so I whipped up a spicy lime mayo from this burger recipe we love. I used half light mayo and half nonfat Greek yogurt to keep it a little lighter.

Tuna Cakes

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (5-oz) cans solid white albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil


  • 2 tablespoons nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • zest of half of a lime
  • juice of half a lime


Whisk the egg and panko together in a medium bowl. Stir in the scallions, cilantro, sesame oil, chili-garlic sauce and black pepper. Add the tuna and gently mix until incorporated. Divide the mixture into four equal portions, and shape each portion into a patty. Refrigerate the patties for at least 15 minutes.

Set a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the oil. When it shimmers, add the patties. Cook for about 5 minutes total, flipping halfway through, or until the patties are golden brown on both sides. Carefully remove them from the pan.

To make the sauce: Stir together all of the ingredients in a bowl – you can add more or less sriracha than called for, depending on how spicy you want the sauce. Serve a dollop on each tuna cake.
