Tuna Cakes with Creamy Cucumber
Ingredients
1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber
1/2 cup fat-free plain yogurt or fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning salt
1/3 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
1 cup panko bread crumbs, divided
1 can (12 ounces) albacore tuna in water, drained
1 tablespoon canola oil or olive oil, divided
Lemon wedges (optional)

Directions
Yield: 5 servings
Serving size: 1 tuna cake and 2 tablespoons sauce per serving

1 – For sauce, stir together cucumber, yogurt, dill, and lemon-pepper seasoning. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

2 – In mixing bowl combine carrots, onion, celery, mayonnaise, and mustard. Stir in 1/2 cup panko. Add tuna and mix until combined.

3 – Place remaining panko in shallow dish. Shape tuna mixture into 5 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Dip patties in panko, lightly coating.

4 – In 10-inch nonstick skillet heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil. Add patties. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to skillet when patties are turned. Serve with yogurt mixture and garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
