How to make tuna cakes with jalapeno and cilantro

Print this recipe
Ever since I started cutting carbs out of my diet, I've found that my favorite dishes are those that may require a little bit of work, but that also bring a fresh and exciting twist. After all, I think we've all had enough of salad, haven't we? The recipe below is one of my favorites, and it really doesn't take that much time to pull together.
All you really have to do is combine tuna, eggs, and almond flour in a large bowl. The eggs and flour will hold everything together. From there, you can add all the fillings you want and even make a zesty mayonnaise to go along with them. In this version, I opted for jalapeños and cilantro, two of my favorite ingredients when I'm searching for bold flavors. But feel free to mix it up and add in whatever seasonings you want.
