3 (5-oz.) cans Sprouts solid white no-salt-added albacore tuna, drained
1 large egg, beaten
2/3 cup Panko breadcrumbs, divided
½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt, divided
¼ cup finely chopped red onion
¼ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
3/8 teaspoon salt, divided
¼ teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ cup Sprouts light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 garlic cloves, finely minced


Place the tuna in a medium bowl and flake with a fork. Add egg, 1/3 cup breadcrumbs, ¼ cup yogurt, the onion, bell pepper, parsley, garlic, ¼ teaspoon salt and the pepper. Mix together with a fork just until blended. Shape tuna mixture into 8 small cakes.
Place the remaining 1/3 cup breadcrumbs and walnuts in a shallow dish, and gently coat both side of each patty in breadcrumb mixture.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tuna cakes, in batches if necessary, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
While cakes cook, stir together remaining ¼ cup yogurt, the the mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Serve sauce with tuna cakes
