TUNA CAKES

My mother made salmon cakes for dinner occasionally when I was growing up. She used a basic recipe with cracker crumbs and an egg. Over the years, I get a desire to have salmon cakes but usually when I don’t have a can of salmon on hand and don’t feel like going out to buy one. Here is an easy alternative because I almost always have cans of tuna on hand and a box of Stove Top Stuffing Mix.

TUNA CAKES

2 cans light una in water, drained and flaked
1 package Stove top stuffing mix for chicken
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup water
1 carrot, shredded
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for at least ten minutes. Heat large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat. Use ice cream or other scoop to add 1/3 cup portions of tuna mixture, in batches, to skillet Flatten into patties with back of spatula. Cook 6 minutes or until golden brown on both sides, carefully turning patties after 3 minutes.
