Spicy Tuna Hummus Cakes are flaky and flavorful in every bite. Full of healthy protein and energizing carbs to keep you moving all day!
Hi, friends! Today I have a fun, easy recipe for you that provides portable, tasty protein whenever you need it! I’ve made three batches of these tuna cakes (froze one) for the week; they are out of this world delicious!
I’m always trying to stay on top of the availability of healthy sustainable seafood. One way I do that is by using the Seafood Watch App by the Monterey Bay Aquarium. That app is helpful for reminding me why I care about sustainable seafood (environmental and health impacts.)
However, it can slow down your grocery shopping trip to be checking out apps on your phone when you are trying to purchase your weekly clean eating staples like tuna. That’s why I was so excited to learn about Wild Selections which is the only full line of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood.
The blue MSC eco-label tells you the fish in your can comes from well-managed fisheries and healthy fish stocks. Where the fish is caught is just as critical if not more so than how it was captured (limited impact if the fish stock is overfished). In fact, you can visit WildSelections.com to learn where the fish in your can was caught!!!
I’d never tried the brand before, so the pull top lid immediately stood out to me, I mean can openers are so nineties right? Besides that, this tuna is so fresh and flaky you could honestly take it as is and eat it straight out of the can. Move over protein bars, and nuts, a can of tuna is my emergency snack now!
Okay, don’t think you are quite there yet? No problem, these tuna cakes are almost as portable. Of course, they require refrigeration, but they serve as a good grab and go protein rich energizing snack to have on hand whenever you need!
It’s super easy to make a ton of them (depending on how many muffin pans you have), and you can even freeze more to have on hand for emergencies or lazy nights you don’t feel like cooking. I mean how can you say no to bowl full of flaky and spicy tuna cakes?
I ate mine over cauliflower rice sauteed with garlic salt and a little chipotle avocado oil (so freaking good). Of course, when it comes to fish I always think I need a little, okay a lot, of sriracha. #iputthatoneverything Nothing like the light, flaky bite of a tuna cake topped with super salty, spicy sriracha! Simply, Heavenly.
As if that wasn’t enough you can even feel philanthropic when you chose Wild Selections. They give back to the oceans by donating 13 cents of EVERY CAN sold (a total of $1 million in 2018) to World Wildlife Fund marine conservation and fishery improvement projects.
So, you know that not only did you purchase a sustainable product to make your heavenly meal with, but you are also helping to further research to help improve conservation and fishery! Bam, a good deed is done for the day, just by eating some tuna!
