Air Fryer Cilantro Lime Tuna Cakes with Mango Avocado Salsa

Air-fried tuna cakes and a refreshing salsa? Yum! This paleo-friendly recipe is a delicious meal to pack for work or enjoy at home. Annie Deutsch from Balanced in Healing shares her delicious and nutritious recipe for air-fried cilantro lime tuna cakes with mango avocado salsa.
I first fell in love with tuna cakes three years ago when I switched to a Paleo/real food diet. They’re the perfect little portable protein snack. Through my journey of using food as medicine to manage my Lupus & Hashimoto’s, I’ve grown to understand the importance of consuming wild-caught fish over farmed fish. Wild-caught fish not only offers a more nutrient-dense profile but also, it’s more environmentally sustainable to consume. That’s why I love Wild Planet Foods and their mission to provide the highest quality, premium foods that are nutritious and delicious.

    Tuna Cakes

    4. Use a 1/4-cup-measuring cup to form cakes and then flatten to the desired shape.

    5. Place tuna cakes on parchment paper in the air fryer or directly into the lightly oiled basket. Leave about 1 inch between the cakes so they can get nice and crispy. 

    6. Cook in the air fryer at 380 degrees for about 13-15 min. Flip over the cakes about halfway through. 

    7. When the tuna cakes are a nice golden brown, remove from the air fryer.
