      We loved these tuna cakes. Great flavor and easy to do. I used fresh chives but otherwise followed the recipe. I may cut the sauce in half as we had lots left. I served with coleslaw and was a great meal. We will definitely have this many times in the future.

      yummmy!! I made these tonight and DH and I loved them! I left out the jalapeno peppers and walnuts because I didn't have any, and had to sub regular onions for the green onions and chives. Also, I baked in the oven instead of frying in butter. Used a peach salsa in the sauce and the flavor was great with the tuna cake. thanks!

      Great recipe for the humble tuna. Loved the combo of flavors. Will make this again for sure. I did make a few changes....I used cracker meal instead of the bread. Came out great! Thanks!!!
