Here, you'll stir solid white tuna meat with fresh scallions, Panko-style breadcrumbs, and creamy mayo before forming the mixture into patties and lightly sautéing them in oil until golden brown. The real magic is in the rémoulade, a perfectly balanced salty-creamy-tangy sauce made from parsley, relish, mustard, hot pepper sauce, and (of course) more mayonnaise. Because who says you can't have a little summery fried fish moment all year-round? Ingredients 1 can (12-oz.) solid white tuna in spring water, drained and flaked ½ cup chopped scallions (from 6 scallions) ½ teaspoon kosher salt ½ teaspoon black pepper 1 ½ cups panko (Japanese-style breadcrumbs), divided 1 ⅔ cups mayonnaise, divided 3 tablespoons canola oil ¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley ¼ cup dill pickle relish 1 tablespoon coarse-grained mustard 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco Pepper Sauce) Directions Place tuna, scallions, salt, pepper, 1 cup of the panko, and 1 cup of the mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Stir until combined, and form into 4 (¾-in.-thick) patties. Place remaining ½ cup panko in a shallow dish. Dredge patties in panko, pressing lightly to adhere. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. Add patties; cook, turning occasionally, until golden-brown on both sides, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and drain on paper towels. Whisk together parsley, relish, mustard, hot pepper sauce, and remaining ⅔ cup mayonnaise in a small bowl. Serve with tuna cakes.
