  1. i tried these and they were great. i found that two table spoons of mayo and a teaspoon of tomato paste makes a good marie rose sauce. went well with the tuna cakes as a change from the tartar sauce.

  2. That's a great compliment. I like being able to show new foods or jazz up old favorites. It's so easy to fall into routines or ruts with simple perhaps boring foods. If I can provide the oomph to not be bored, I am happy.

  3. Thanks for this recipe Kent. I love tuna and will be making these, but I think I will make them into flat cakes instead of croquettes. I normally eat 15oz of tuna when I make a tuna salad. Darn, you are a good cook. 🙂

  4. The new plan does have portion size, but the original plan was eat to one's satiation. I follow the original plan (DANDR) as I think that is the reason I was ultimately successful — I listened to my body.

  5. its 182 for 2 cakes? that doesnt seem too bad. maybe ill try it out today but without the tartar sauce cause that would accumulate to almost 400. but thanks. i will make it for lunch. 🙂 (im trying to stick to a 1200 cal a day diet)

  6. At this nutritional info:
    Nutrition Info per Serving (2 cakes):
    182 Calories, 7.8g Fat, 1g Total Carbs (0.2g Fiber) , 25.5g Protein

    This isn't low enough carb for you?

  7. I made these tuna cakes today. I cooked some bacon and added to the tuna mixture. They came out VERY good! I made my own video and sent it to my BF so that he too can make these! INCREDIBLE!! Thanks for your wonderful recipe!! 😀

  8. There is a little bit in it and probably should have been listed as an optional ingredient, but the effective carbs per serving from the 1 tsp is less than 0.2g per serving.

  9. I am almost positive you have EVOO — Extra Virgin Olive Oil i.e. the first pressings of the olives. I would be really really surprised if you didn't as that is the way most olive oil originally was. If you ever have any questions about an ingredient, please feel free to ask. I am more than happy to answer any of the questions I can.

  10. I think we don't have EVOO i'm from middle east i can't find most of the products you use 🙁
    but i find them with different brands..sometimes i cant understood what you using until i google it LOL
    you are amazing just keep up and look forward to watch more of your low carbs videos

  11. I think I was using peanut or corn oil in this video, but recently I have been more in favor of using refined olive oil (not EVOO) as it's smoke temp is 450F (same as corn and much higher than EVOO) and doesn't have the same industrial oil association.

  12. You are very welcome. I am glad you like the Induction Friendly tag as those people on Induction have a crucial place in my videos as I want to make sure the diet is as easy to start as it is to stay on. Thank you for purchasing LCAF too. It is support like yours that keeps me going. 🙂

  13. @TheQueenPalace I think I had a large salad (2-3 cups) with cheese the last time I made these, but cabbage with bacon sounds good too. I am not a huge tuna eater (maybe 3 times in 8 years of being on Atkins prior to this recipe), so 3 were enough for me.

    As for my serving sizes, sometimes I pick something that makes it easy to double or triple depending on hunger.

  14. @TheQueenPalace I know the first time or two I make a recipe it is always more arduous time until I know the recipe essentially by heart or know when each of the ingredients are used. I am glad you liked it. 🙂

  15. I enjoy your vids they are very helpful. I made this today… Yummy!! It's just that every time I make these meals for the first time it takes so long. Hopefully it won't take as long next time now that I've made it before. Very tasty. Thanks for posting 🙂

  16. @Bonnie90505 I am happy to hear your son is getting ideas and loves to cook as well. That was probably my downfall after becoming a dad was losing that love to cook and be in the kitchen.
