Spicy Tuna Cakes
Whether you eat fresh tuna steaks or tuna in a can available as either albacore or light, eating tuna contributes to a healthy diet. Despite the fact that tuna, along with other marine life, contains mercury, consumed in moderation tuna provides protein, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids with very little saturated fat. I wouldn’t recommend eating tuna much if you are pregnant or breastfeeding due to the mercury content.
