"Crab" Cakes with Tuna and Cheese

"Crab" Cakes with Tuna and Cheese

Simple and delicious! I used canned tuna and crab sticks to make these easy "crab" cakes. They have creamy Camembert cheese inside!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Tomato sauce Ingredients:
Canned tomatoes
200 g
Onion (finely chopped)
50 g
Garlic (minced)
a pinch (to taste)
Bay leaf
1
Salt and pepper
to taste
Soup stock cube
1
Olive oil
2 tablespoons
Crab Cake Ingredients:
Canned tuna (drained and flaked)
85 g
Imitation crab sticks (finely shredded)
3 sticks
Onion (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons
Panko
1/2 cup
Milk
1/2 tablespoon
Egg
1
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Camembert cheese
25 g
Plain flour
as needed
Butter
15 g
Vegetable oil
40 ml
Fresh parsley
to taste
Baby leaf lettuce
as needed

Steps

1. Tomato sauce: Sauté the onions and garlic in olive oil. Then add the canned tomato, bay leaf, and consommé and simmer well. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Crab cakes: Thoroughly knead the canned tuna, crab sticks, onions, panko, milk, eggs, and salt and pepper together.
3. Tuck 1/2 the listed amount (about about 12 g each) of Camembert cheese in a patty of tuna-crabstick mix. Form into rounds and dust lightly with flour.
4. Heat butter and vegetable oil in a pan, and pan-fry each patty from Step 3 one at a time until crisp on both sides.
5. Arrange on a plate and top with some of the tomato sauce that's been reheated. Sprinkle on parsley, arrange some baby leaf lettuce on the side, and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had leftover canned tuna, and wondered what I could make with it... then I opened my refrigerator and there were some crab sticks! It was a bit of a risky venture, but I made crab cakes by combining the two. The tomato sauce adds a refreshing flavor and improves the flavor.
