I first tried sweet chili sauce a few months ago and it was a game-changer. Ever since then I’ve been trying to think of ways to add more sweet chili sauce to my life.  These tuna cakes are just my latest attempt at combining sweet chili sauce with a super easy and quick meal prep recipe. 

Pair these cakes with your favorite veggie and you got yourself a quick, easy, and healthy meal. I would suggest taking leftovers to work the next day, but your coworkers may give you a dirty look for microwaving tuna ? …..but, hey, I think it’s worth it!
