These are absolutely wonderful! They are definitely different and that is what makes them good. Also, a new way to serve tuna fish. Serve these with a nice green salad & good mashed garlic potatoes. I have changed the recipe a little because of personal taste. Hope you like it as well. Recipe Courtesy Paula Deen - Television Food Network, 2003.

This recipe didn't work real good for me, however, I changed a few ingredients so I'll reserve my rating for now. I enjoy tuna & horseradish but found the flavours off for me. It might have been the kind of tuna I used.

I made this at the last minute and I cut the recipe into half (making 2 cakes) and added a shredded carrot. My teenaged son ate it without a complaint. Thank you, DiScharf! Roxygirl
