Quick and Delicious Fish Cakes

Clearing away artificial ingredients and hard-to-pronounce additives from our diet is important for our overall well-being. Clover Leaf Seafoods recognizes the importance of fewer, simpler product ingredients and has launched a reformulation of their extensive line-up of products.

Since March 2017, all Clover Leaf tuna in water products are made with only three ingredients: tuna, water and sea salt. The reformulated products do not contain preservatives or additives, it is gluten-free and BPA free. These products have the non-GMO project verified seal and Clover Leaf All Natural branding.

Clover Leaf All Natural Tuna in water is available in three varieties: skipjack, yellowfin and albacore. A low sodium version is also available, which contains only tuna and water without any added salt. Clover Leaf All Natural Tuna in water products are available at retailers across Canada and range in pricing from $1.99 to $3.99. Every can of Clover Leaf All Natural Tuna in water is fully traceable through Clover Leaf’s Trace My Catch initiative. Consumers can trace the source of the tuna right back to the boat by entering a code found on their can at: http://www.cloverleaf.ca/trace-my-catch.

Since it is high in protein and as nutritious as fresh or frozen fish, I like using Clover Leaf Tuna to prepare a variety of meals from savoury snacks for tea, in sandwiches for school or when we travel, when preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This quick and delicious Savoury Tuna Cakes would be wonderful to serve on its own or in a bun.

Mix all the ingredients and form ball shapes, and slightly flatten it to make the cakes or patties.

Serve the fish cakes with ketchup and mayonnaise. Or it can be served in a toasted and buttered bun, topped with tamarind sauce and green chutney.

  7. I'm glad to hear that the Clover Leaf tuna in water products don't contain preservatives or additives. Thanks for the fish cakes recipe.

  8. Oh yum! These look so good. I'm hoping to make them soon.
    Just because I don't know. What does Turmeric taste like?

    1. Turmeric is a yellow coloured spice it has lots of health benefits. It is not spicy and doesn't really have a taste that I can describe. It removes fish smells :) you can omit this if you do not have.
      I have mentioned two ways of making the fish cakes one breadcrumb and deep fried or flour coated and shallow fried. This is a recipe you can adjust and play with depending on taste. Even the herbs can be substituted coriander, parsley, chives. Nicole looking forward to hear your thoughts after you make the fish cakes.

  9. Oh wow, I haven't had fish cakes since I was a kid I don't think. I must make some of these. Thanks for sharing.
