Prep Time
15 min
  1. 5-oz can low-sodium solid white albacore tuna in water, drained
  2. 2 sliced green onions
  3. 3 egg whites
  4. 1 tbsp coconut flour
  5. 1/4 tsp chili powder
  6. 1/4 tsp paprika
  7. 1/8 tsp sea salt
  8. 1 tbsp lime juice
  9. 4–5 shakes hot sauce
  10. 2 tsp coconut oil
  11. 2 tbsp chunky salsa
  12. 1/4 avocado (optional)
  1. Combine all ingredients, except coconut oil, salsa and avocado, in a medium-sized bowl. Let sit 2 to 3 minutes so the coconut flour absorbs the moisture of the egg whites and lime juice.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick pan or electric griddle to medium-high heat or 350°F.
  3. Divide and shape mixture into 2 fish cakes.
  4. Heat coconut oil in the pan and cook cakes about 4 to 5 minutes, then flip. The bottom of the cakes should be a nice golden brown.
  5. Cook 2 to 3 minutes more. When cooked, top cakes with salsa and avocado, and serve with a side salad.
