Cilantro Lime Tuna Cakes: A Keto and Paleo Quick Dinner

Cilantro Lime Tuna Cakes: a Keto and Paleo Quick Dinner

Cilantro and Lime Tuna Cakes are a quick meal that you can basically create with simple pantry items. These Cilantro and Lime Tuna Cakes actually come quickly because I use so few ingredients. Substitute fresh Cilantro with dried Cilantro from your panty or use canned chicken or salmon rather than tuna for a fresh twist. I always have at least one can of tuna in my pantry just waiting to be made into something delicious.

Cilantro and Lime go together extremely well and it is for this reason why I add them to a lot of recipes I make at home for my family. The bite from the lime and cilantro meld together and as a result mellow out the “fishy” canned tuna taste.
