Keto Tuna Patties

This Keto Tuna Patties recipe is a great substitute for salmon and is generally a lot less expensive and easier to find.

Some love Salmon, some don’t … others prefer Tuna; personally, I myself, love them both! Whichever way is your preference, this Tuna Pattie recipe will be a perfect recipe for you to try if you want a simple, easy fish/seafood pattie. 

If you aren’t on Keto, that’s fine – you can simply use cracker crumbs in place of crushed pork rinds. And slap it between a couple of slices of bread, if you please.

Kid’s love these, too. Tuna patties can be served as lunch or dinner; with or without bread; perhaps with a bit of macaroni & cheese as a side for the kids? They’ll eat these either way!

Keyword: tuna
Servings: 4
Author: Grandma


  • 3 @ 5 oz cans Tuna drained, finely shredded
  • oz pork rinds finely crushed
  • 1 tsp dried dill weed
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • coconut or olive oil for frying


  • In a large bowl, finely shred the tuna from the can. Make sure there are no 'chunks'.
  • Place pork rinds in a gallon baggie and finely smash or use rolling pin, as I did. Add to tuna in bowl
  • Add the dill weed, smoked paprika and salt.
  • Add the cheeses.
  • Mix all these dry ingredients together well.
  • Add the eggs and mayo. Mix very well. Mix will seem too dry, but as they cook the cheese melts adding moisture and holding them together.
  • Heat the coconut or olive oil in a frying on low to med-low heat (I used enough to make about 1/4 inch up on patties. (The thicker you make your patties the lower you will need to have your heat to keep them from burning on the outside and still cold on the inside.)
  • Divide mixture into 4 'balls'. Form into patties, about 1/2"-3/4" thick. Fry in oil until nicely browned and warmed all thru.
