Raise your hand if you’ve got canned tuna in your pantry and you need a new way to use it! Canned Tuna Cakes with Chipotle Lime Dipping Sauce is the perfect remedy for canned tuna burnout.
I haven’t posted in a while, so I thought I’d jump back in here with a useful recipe for our unusual times. But first, I truly hope this post finds you happy and healthy.
My family and I are hunkered down and have been since the first of March. We’ve got puzzles on the coffee table, board games on the dining room table, temporary desks in the living room and loads of cooking happening in my kitchen.
I’ve got two college students home, and my oldest is an RN working on the front lines with the Covid-19 team at her hospital. My mama heart is so proud of my gal, but I won’t lie, the worry is real.
Thankfully I’ve been busy with work, edits for the cookbook and helping to create this brand new website, thanks to WPBarista and her team. If you have time, browse the website and let me know what you think.
I’ve also been cleaning, cooking, laundry, cleaning, cooking, laundry and oh, cooking. Anyone else doing the same? Despite the little bits of humor here, we’re all muddling along and hoping every day that you’re doing as well as possible.
While we’re all at home and limiting visits to the market and purchasing most of our fresh ingredients from local farms with curbside pick-up, I’ve been using a lot of my canned goods, like tuna for recipes like my tuna cakes and this delicious Garlic Lemon Tuna Pasta.
These Canned Tuna Cakes with Chipotle Lime Dipping Sauce are simple, and the ingredients are easily adjusted to what you have on hand.
If you don’t have canned tuna, canned salmon or canned chicken can also be used. If you don’t have a chile lime seasoning, chili seasoning is just fine. No limes? Use some lemon or a spot of rice wine vinegar for a little acid. No green onions? Use regular onions or even some garlic. This is the beauty of this recipe, substitutions are absolutely allowed.
I thought I’d close this post with a photo that always makes me giggle, a typical Gus “face”. The one he gives us when he’s completely bored because we’re all busy and no one is paying attention to him. He sends his love!
