Thai Tuna Patties with Cilantro Cabbage Slaw

2 (5 ounce) cans Genova Yellowfin Tuna

1 egg

1 T. coconut flour (or ¼ C. Panko breadcrumbs)

¼ C. freshly chopped cilantro

½ T. freshly grated ginger

2 cloves garlic, minced

¼ tsp. turmeric

½ tsp. cayenne pepper


Freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp. coconut oil

1 avocado, sliced (for topping)

4 whole wheat or gluten-free hamburger buns (optional)

For the slaw


½ C. shredded carrots

½ C. shredded cabbage

¼ C. chopped cilantro

1 T. apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. coconut sugar

1 tsp. toasted sesame oil


Freshly ground pepper

A few dashes of hot sauce, if you like it spicy


Make your slaw. In a small bowl combine carrots, cabbage, cilantro, apple cider vinegar, coconut sugar, sesame oil, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Set aside to marinate for a few minutes. In a medium bowl mix together tuna, egg, coconut flour, cilantro, ginger, garlic, turmeric, salt and pepper until well combined. Break up the tuna with a fork and mix together until well combined. Use your hand to form four even patties. If they don’t seem like they are sticking together well, place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. Add coconut oil to a nonstick skillet or griddle and place over medium heat. Add each patty to the skillet and cook for about 2-4 minutes, until golden brown, then carefully flip patty and cook for another 2-4 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to buns or lettuce wraps. Add avocado slices and cilantro cabbage mixture. Serve with extra hot sauce, aioli or mayo if you’d like.
