Low-Carb Tuna and Mackerel Cakes
Ingredients25 m servings 242 cals
- Mix mackerel, onion, tuna, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, eggs, Dijon mustard, seasoning blend, paprika, and basil together in a bowl. Add pork rind crumbs, 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, until mixture holds together. Form mixture into balls and flatten into 1/2-inch-thick cakes.
- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and grease with cooking spray. Arrange cakes in the hot skillet and spray each cake with cooking spray.
- Cook cakes, working in batches if needed, in the hot skillet until browned, 3 to 5 minutes; gently flatten cakes with the back of a fork. Flip cakes and cook until other side is browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer cakes to a paper towel-lined plate.

I have made this twice, but with some substitutions! I'm not a fan of mackerel so I just used the tuna. I also didn't have Mrs. Dash, so I used a dash of onion powder and garlic powder, a pinch ...
I did not need to make any changed to this recipe. It was very flavorful. I will save this to my favorites for sure!
I used Old Bay seasoning instead of Mrs. Dash and brushed the cakes with olive oil since I didn't have any spray. They turned out pretty good
Put on a white corn tortilla with fresh veggies and balsamic vinegar glaze. Delicious!
