Transforming Strength Tuna Cakes Recipe

Tuna Cakes is a nutritious and healthy recipe recommended by Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach Matt Hartsky.


  • 3 cans Tuna
  • 2 Sweet Potato (Approximately 2 Cups cooked and mashed)
  • 1 Red Pepper (Finely Diced)
  • 1 Yellow Onion (Finely Diced)
  • 1 Garlic Clove (Minced)
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Fresh Chives
  • 1/2 Lime (Juice)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 tbsp Salt 
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Paprika


  • Dice the sweet potato into smallish cubes and boil for 10 minutes in salted water. They should be fork tender.
  • While the sweet potato boils, sauté the diced red pepper and onion in a little bit of oil until the onion is soft.
  • Now mix everything together in a mixing bowl until well combined. I use a wooden spoon to smash the potato as I mix, leaving slightly chunky.
  • Form the mixture into tuna cakes. (12 )
  • Heat up oil in skillet over a medium high heat. Once the pan is hot – carefully place the fish cakes in the pan and allow them to get a good sear on each side. Let them sit for at least 3 minutes per side.
    These are very tender to cook.  Crumble easily, but OH so yummy!
