  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix the tuna, bread crumbs, zucchini, green pepper, onion, green onions, garlic, jalapeno pepper, cottage cheese, sour cream, 2 eggs, lime juice, dried basil, pepper, and salt.
  3. Beat 2 eggs in a shallow bowl, and place the cornmeal on a plate.
  4. Scoop up about 1/4 cup of the tuna mixture, and gently form it into a compact patty. Dip both sides of each cake into beaten egg and then press into cornmeal, and place the cakes onto the prepared baking sheet. Spray the tops of the cakes with cooking oil spray.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops of the cakes are beginning to brown, about 20 minutes. Flip each cake, spray with cooking spray, and bake until the cakes are cooked through and lightly browned, about 20 more minutes.

This was the first thing I've ever made that my husband refused to eat. They were really dry and not appetizing at all.

These were delicious. I had grilled the veggies called for the night before w/ the exception of the green onions. I rough chopped those veggies and then put them in my small food processor. I us...

This is perfect as written and is my favorite recipe by far for anything tuna. SO yummy!

Pretty good... I chose this recipe because it wasn't fried and is low in fat. I thought they were really good and tasted a little like crab cakes. They were good with cocktail sauce. I also a...

Wonderful recipe! Cheap and it makes a ton of yummy food. The spicy pepper gives these tuna cakes a subtle kick. I didn't use sour cream and the dish still turned out great. I baked them a l...
