Curry Tuna Cakes

Updated: Feb 20


We have a big fan of curry and a big fan of tuna here! For a low cal, high protein goal, I've combined them to give you a tasty healthy nutritious meal!


The high levels of omega-3 fatty acids in tuna fish may help to reduce the level of omega-6 fatty acids and LDL cholesterol that can accumulate inside the arteries of the heart. Studies have shown that eating more omega-3 is associated with reduced rates of cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks.


Ingredients:


1 can of tuna in saltwater/brine (drained 120g of tuna)

1 large egg white

1 tsp curry spice

20g Futurelife Zero

finely chopped rosa tomatoes

finely chopped bell peppers

spray & cook



Instructions:


  1. Drain the can of tuna.

  2. Once drained, mix in the egg white, Futurelife, curry spice, bell peppers and tomatoes with it. (Tuna mixture)

  3. Preheat the stove on medium heat.

  4. Spray a frying pan with spray and cook.

  5. Transfer a palm size hand filled of the tuna mixture and pan fry till golden on both sides.

MEAL IDEA:

As shown above!

-Add tuna cakes on top of Blue Ribbon's Sandwich Thins (available at any supermarket Spar, PnP etc.) covered with fat-free/low fat smooth cottage cheese. And a squirt of sweet chili sauce on top! I use Lifestyle Food's brand. (available at Dischem Stores)


There are 125 calories in 1 square (55 g) of Blue Ribbon Sandwich Squares White.









There are 7 calories in 100 ml of Lifestyle Food Sweet Chilli Sauce.

Their other sauces are really good alternatives as well!

Full meal idea is 200 calories with half of a serving of the tuna recipe above!


ENJOY IT GUILT-FREE!
