Lemon Pepper Tuna Cakes

Lemon Pepper Tuna Cakes

I make Salmon Cakes frequently and the whole family loves them. I set about make them this week and realized I was out of canned salmon. I always have Tonnino Tuna in our pantry so I decided to sub the Lemon Pepper Tuna for the salmon and it was really tasty. We always serve our cakes with spicy mayo which I think elevates them. These are great to make ahead and cook right before dinner. We served ours with Brussels sprouts, sunchokes, and acorn peas. Enjoy!
