I thought was a good substitute for crab cakes..which many people are allergic. I used panko instead of regular bread crumbs and did not have green onion so I used yellow.. It was delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipie was very easy to make, but I must say that the end result was much more a "tuna fish cake" than a "faux crab cake." They tasted pretty good, but I was expecting more of a crab-cake esque experience. If I knew someone that absolutely loved crab cakes and I didn't have crab meat this meal would not be a suitable alternative. However if the person loved fishcakes/patties then it would be perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe, although I use crabmeat instead of tuna and add Old Bay seasoning, it is awesome. Thanks Paula this is a easy way to make crabcakes, and I've even used Salmon and it still turned out awesome. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My daughter is very picky and she loved these ....I used cracker's crushed added 1 tablespoon of red pepper and green pepper and 1 teaspoon of old bay and was very yummy item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't eat shellfish but my sister raves about crab cakes so when i saw this recipe that called for tuna I just had to try it. I added the Old Bay seasoning as suggested by others, since I don't like mayo I used sour cream. I also cooked it in olive oil on a nonstick pan so i didn't have to worry about draining it on a paper towel. It held together well. She didn't say plain or seasoned breadcrumbs so I used the Italian for more flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Faux crab cakes or tasty tuna cakes/burgers? This recipe is very easy and tasty. I added cayenne pepper, lemon pepper, and capers. You really don't need to add salt to tuna since it's naturally salty. I used egg whites and a little mayo with olive oil as the binder. Finally, I baked them vs. frying for fewer calories. item not reviewed by moderator and published
