These tuna cakes are probably the best that I have ever made.  They don't even taste like tuna!  I know that frying tuna is not the most healthy way to eat it, but it sure was delicious! 

3 (6 ounce) cans tuna  (drained)
1 1/2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
4 tablespoons mayo
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard  
2 tablespoons lemon juice 
1/2 cup onion (finely diced)
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon red curry powder
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic 
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper

To prepare:
Mix all the ingredients, like you would for a meatloaf.  Pour oil into a pan and heat over medium to medium high heat.  Drop mixture by heaping tablespoon into pan and press to for cake with the back of your spoon.  Cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.  Place cakes on paper towel or brown bag to help drain the oil.  Serve with your favorite sauce!  We used Franks Red Hot!
