This was a fast and easy recipe. I had a difficult time getting the patties to really stick, but added some more panko to the outside to help. I couldn't find the thai tuna so I instead used the Hickory smoked flavor. I would make this again when we need a quick meal but I wouldn't say 'oh I can't wait to make this again'.

Love this recipe -- quick and easy, and tastes great - would give it a five star except for the fact that it is a bit difficult to keep patties together. I haven't found the thai tuna, but instead added 'Thai Garlic & Pepper Sauce' to regular canned white tuna which gave a nice spicy flavor. This is so easy for a quick lunch and a great replacement for regular tuna salad.

My family loves this and it is so quick and easy! I am not a hot and spicy person, so I used 1/2 the amount of thai tuna and 1/2 regular. The cucumber aiolo really does cool the spiciness of the cakes. For my family's taste, I exchanges sour cream for mayonaise. It has become the most requested meal at home

Made this for the first time tonight. It was really tasty, but I agree with the other reviewers that the cakes kind of fall apart. I think using a bit more breadcrumbs and the whole egg, not just the white will help. I didn't change anything about this recipe, but next time I will try the changes I suggested. The flavor was outstanding, and especially with the aioli was a hit in our house.

I have cooked these many times and every time I get raves! I love the sweet and spicy of the tuna. Awesome combination! (I use Bumble Bee). I serve them with a cole slaw with vinegar instead of mayo and it helps to cool down the heat from the cakes!
