Okay, this is not a Cuban recipe. Today I couldn't decide what to eat for lunch. As I opened my can of tuna and grabbed my saltine crackers and a bit of mayonnaise, I stared down at the boring lunch I was about to prepare for myself. Then a thought occurred to me ...Tuna Cakes!
I grabbed another can of tuna (to make it worth my while), and I poured the tuna into a bowl, I crushed about 8 saltines and dropped them in, a dollop of mayonnaise and an egg to hold it all together. I poured a little oil at the bottom of my pan, formed a few patties and in they went. Brown a little on one side, flip them over. .... voila! (I later thought I could have added onions — next time) I mixed a teaspoon of mayo with a squirt of ketchup, a wedge of lemon, and my boring lunch turned gourmet.
