  • 4 5-ounce cans tuna drained

  • 1/3 cup almond flour

  • 2 medium green onions, chopped white and light green parts only

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill

  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil


  1. In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except the avocado oil until well combined. Form into 8 patties about 3/4 inch thick.

  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the avocado oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add half of tuna patties and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Carefully flip over and cook the other side another 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a paper towel lined plate and repeat with the remaining oil and patties. 

  4. Top with mayo, lemon, and capers, if desired.
