TUNA CAKES WITH JALAPEÑO AND CILANTRO

These yummy Tuna Cakes with Jalapeño and Cilantro are low on carbs and calories and big on flavor!  These can also be gluten free and just as delicious if you swap out almond meal for the breadcrumbs.  Plus, they are made from canned tuna so they’re totally budget friendly!  I know you’re gonna love them as much as I do!
If I really think about it, it’s not me so much but other “people” that live in my house that require, let’s say, more variety and really just substance.  And by substance I guess I mean protein!  I know I’ve mentioned Sanderino’s carnivorous ways previously.

Basically it comes down to the simple fact that life is busy.  Our time is very precious, and a bit elusive.  We all need quick, easy, inexpensive, delicious, recipes to make for easy weeknight dinners.  Like, for example, my Tuna Cakes.  Think crab cakes but way cheaper, less seafoody and more tasty.
These yummy Tuna Cakes with Jalapeño and Cilantro are low on carbs and calories and big on flavor! 

Ingredients
  • 25 ounces canned solid white tuna in water (five 5-ounce cans)
  • 2 large eggs , lightly beaten
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro coarsely chopped, plus a few sprigs saved for garnish
  • 1/3 cup , plus 2 tablespoons, plain dry breadcrumbs (or almond meal for a gluten free option)
  • 4 tablespoons Canola mayonnaise (Greek yogurt can be used instead)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 to 1 1/2 lemons)
  • 3 jalapeno chile peppers , finely chopped, ribs and seeds removed unless you like it a little spicy
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons extra light olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions
  1. In a large strainer, in the sink over a large bowl, add the 5 cans of tuna and let them drain while you prepare the following ingredients.
  2. Sauté the onions for about 8 minutes in a sauté pan, until translucent. Set aside and let cool.
  3. While the onions are cooking, in a large mixing bowl, add the mayo, lemon juice, salt and pepper and whisk till combined. Then add cilantro and peppers to the mixture.
  4. Add the tuna, beaten eggs, cooked onions and breadcrumbs, and mix gently until ingredients just hold together.
  5. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil on high for about a minute, then turn it down to medium high.
  6. Working in batches, using a packed one-third cup measure of tuna mixture per cake, cook cakes until golden brown and crisp on the outside, about 3 minutes per side. You may need to add a tablespoon of oil to the pan between batches. Serve hot, or warm over a simple arugula or kale salad. Recipe makes 14-16 patties.

Recipe Notes
Scoop the tuna mixture with a one third measuring cup, pat it a little to make sure it's formed tightly, then place it in the sauté pan.
Use a grease screen to cut down on the oil splatter while cooking the cakes.
Don’t overcrowd the pan when cooking the cakes.  They will take longer and flipping them over will be more difficult.  I use a 10inch Calphalon pan and cook 4 patties at a time.
There is not much filler in these cakes, which makes them a little loose. Be sure to gently flip them over when cooking.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
