Directions

Yield:

Serving size:
1 tuna cake and 2 tablespoons sauce per serving

For sauce, stir together cucumber, yogurt, dill, and lemon-pepper seasoning. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

In mixing bowl combine carrots, onion, celery, mayonnaise, and mustard. Stir in 1/2 cup panko. Add tuna and mix until combined.

Place remaining panko in shallow dish. Shape tuna mixture into 5 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Dip patties in panko, lightly coating.

In 10-inch nonstick skillet heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil. Add patties. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to skillet when patties are turned. Serve with yogurt mixture and garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.

Tip: To reduce the sodium in this recipe, use salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning blend that has no sodium.
