To be honest I hate tuna. I was originally making these for my 2-year-old's lunch. & I actually liked these! Not fishy at all. I used lemon juice & breadcrumbs instead of the cornflakes. I also grated the onion & added some pepper. My son scarfed these down! He loved them. This will be a go to lunch for him now! Thanks.

Delicious! I took the advice of the other viewers and used 2 cans of tuna and 3 eggs. For the filler I used uncooked 1 minute oatmeal (I use this in my meatloaf too) and it was wonderful! I didn't have any lemons or limes on hand so I used Lemon Pepper seasoning along with dill and salt and pepper. Cooked with butter. Excellent.... definitely will make this one again!

These were so delicious! I love that they are easy, quick, and healthy! I doubled them and only used 3 eggs. Also, I used low salt saltine crackers for the bonding ingredient....worked wonderfully. I also used white albacore tuna in pouches (just a preference). They were moist, flavorful, and my house smelled like a seafood restaraunt while they cooked. I served them with tartar sauce, but they are also delicious with plain old ketchup or a squeeze of lemon. Thanks for this awesome recipe that I will definitely use again and again :)

I love how easy these are to make and they taste great too! I don't add dill but I do add a little pepper. I'd like to start spicing them up with other things too.
Thanks!

Good recipe. The mixture was easy to work with and the patties stuck together well. The aroma of the lime while cooking was so good. I think I added to much corn flakes as they turned out quite dry. Next time I will reduce the corn flakes or perhaps use something else for the binding agent. I will also use only one egg. I wished that I had made a sauce, perhaps a dill sauce would be nice (my fault for not making it this time). Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Very Good! I didn't want to go to the store so I had to substitute...I used a can of yellowfin tuna that was packed in olive oil well drained. I finely crushed saltine crackers as the binder. I only had large eggs so I used one egg, used a combination of Ole Bay and Ole Thompson fish seasonings plus the lime juice, white onion. They came out very, very tasty.

These were fairly simple to make. Without real guidance as to the amount of crushed corn flakes, I started out by adding 1/4 cup. That was not enough, so I added an additional 1/4 cup, and that seemed about right. There really is not much seasoning in this recipe, so I added some salt and black pepper, which really turned this from bland to tasty. I would suggest adding seasonings of your choice. These are also greatly helped by serving with a sauce, tartar or otherwise. I used a wasabi mayo. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

I'm so glad we tried these. They were so good. All that lime juice gave these such a fresh flavor. I didn't have corn flakes so I used bread crumbs and left the mixture pretty wet. They held together really well. I'm looking forward to making these again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

These are good although there is not a lot of flavor.
Being on a no carb diet instead of corn flakes I used plain instant oatmeal, let them set for about ten minutes and they soaked up fine. I also added some basil and Italian spices to flavor it up some more. I also used the lemon juice and it gives them a nice twist. Pretty mushy but if you scoop them with a spatula after shaping them on a board they cook up nicely.

I just made this with Dill Sauce (http://www.food.com/recipe/dill-sauce-28068) for a 2AM snack. I used breadcrumbs instead of Corn Flakes, and I added diced sweet red pepper and jalapeno. Tuna is salty enough on its own, no need to add any. Don't make your patties too thick, or you'll be waiting forever for them to cook through!
