Spicy Tuna & Zucchini Cakes

14 Dec

This recipe came to me while on the elliptical at the gym this week. I had a piece of tuna marinating in the fridge overnight and had no clue what I was going to have with it when all of a sudden, this popped into my head! They came out delicious and are pretty easy and quick to make. Definitely one of my favorite things I’ve made, I hope you enjoy it! Following this recipe will make about 6 small to medium sized pancakes, you can enjoy them as a meal or a side dish.


  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 tuna steak
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons garlic chili sauce (found in the Asian aisle at the grocery store)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (ish) chopped scallions



  1. Start out by combining the lime juice, garlic cloves and the garlic chili sauce ( I use the Magic Bullet blender to mix). Marinate the tuna steak in the mixture overnight
  2. When you’re ready to cook, put coconut or olive oil in a skillet and heat to a medium temperature
  3. Dice the raw tuna and put it in a large mixing bowl, add a little of the marinade to keep the flavor
  4. Shred the zucchini and add it along with the chopped scallions and egg to the tuna
  5. Mix everything together with your hands to thoroughly combine everything
  6. Make mixture into small pancakes and put in the skillet. Cook until golden brown then flip (about 5-7 minutes per side)
  7. ENJOY!!!
