10 minute Keto Fish Cakes

10 minute Keto Fish Cakes

I loooveee Thai flavours, especially Thai Red Curry! These Keto Fish Cakes have the vibrant and warming flavours of thai red curry paste, and by using tinned tuna are a super fast meal for one. You can easily multiply the recipe for larger tins of tuna to serve more people, but they are my ultimate lunch or dinner when I am craving something full of flavour but really quick.


Using Thai red curry paste makes these keto fish cakes burst with flavour and freshness. Combined with a lime mayonnaise for extra fats, you can serve with a simple salad or just on their own. I like to top them with some sliced spring onion and chilli for an extra flavour packed meal.


You could easily use tinned salmon or even chicken, but I love the texture when done with tuna. Make sure you choose an environmentally friendly tuna for an all round feel good meal.

    So easy and taste amazing! Really quick to make and I double batch so there are more in the fridge for the next few days to have with salad (perfect keto summer meal)

    • Sorry to hear that! I haven’t had them fall apart before and am disappointed they didn’t work for you. If you’re able can you share what ingredients you used eg. what tuna and almond flour, did you drain the tuna, and the size of your egg? I’m hoping to trouble shoot it for you as I’ve only had positive reviews on this before.
