Tuna Bites

Delicious small tuna cakes packed with flavor and good nutrients, that are very low carb.



  1. Sauté the onion in the olive oil with a little bit of the spices and garlic salt, place aside when transparent or soft.
  2. Shred the cheese.
  3. In a bowl place all ingredients (including sautéed onions) with the remainder of the garlic salt and spices. Mix together until all is mixed properly.
  4. With a tablespoon, place the mixture in 12 even parts on an oven cooking pan previously sprayed with non-stick spray.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes, flip the cakes so they can cook evenly, and cook for another 10 minutes or until a little brown.

Really good! A lot like a crab cake. Dont use tin foil! I didnt have gouda so I used some mozzarella and parm. Ate it with a side of broccoli It was yummy, just a little dry. Next time I'll work on a sauce.

This recipe incorporates a wide variety of foods, and is ideal for the Ancient European diet
One serving would be six points! Not too bad if you have it for your main meal with a nice salad. Sounds good.
