If you are looking for a quick and simple appetizer that doesn't look like it was quick and simple, try these delicious shrimp and tuna cakes with avocado sauce on the side.
This is a restaurant quality appetizer that you can make at home really easy with just a few simple ingredients or just serve them as a main dish with a green salad on the side.
The only thing I do not have is the tuna. I will buy that tomorrow and make these for dinner. I can taste them already. 🙂

Thank you guys 🙂
Those look so brown, crunchy and delicious, Erica! And the avocado sauce is just perfect! And maybe a squeeze of lemon or lime before dipping!
You know, I have some canned tuna that I want to use up and this is a perfect way to do so. Thanks Erica!

Love the tuna and ship duo - I bet these are tasty - based on all the recipes you provided this week, I see an entire menu planned that I just have to take advantage of.
Two of my favorite things to eat, shrimp and avocado, delicioso!
YUM! Shrimp AND Tuna...perfect!
I have made one or the other alone, however never thought to mix them together. Looks great. A must try!
You're killing me with this recipe! they look incredible and the shrimps just sticking out, wow!! Thank goodness I can get the ingredients for it. I have to have them!!
Thank you everyone!
Oh, now your talking. This is my way of cooking! I love quick and simple that tastes like you worked hard and spent a lot of time on. I am bookmarking this recipe to make for sure! Thanks!
This is a recipe I can't wait to try except that I can't use shrimps as I'm allergic to them but I'll definitely use tuna!
Two of my favourite ingredients and they look simple enough to make. Definitely something to try.
Ai, ai, Erica, this looks so good, and simple to make. I'm already thinking if I have cans of tuna in my pantry. 😀
What an awesome appetizer! I'm loving the avocado sauce...never too much of that in my life!
These shrimp and tuna cakes look great--love the avocado sauce--I might also try a tartar type sauce with mayo too. Have a great weekend Erica.
Thank you all for the wonderful comments!
although seafood isn't my thing, i must admit that your cakes look tasty. the sauce, however, belongs in my mouth and soon!
Wonderful recipe and appetizer! I will make these as I think the shrimp is what will bring it to a delicious level (the tuna ends up being ho-hum) Thanks!
These look phenomenal!!! I'm bookmarking this right now!
Extremely flavorful and very easy to make with a few simple to find ingredients.
Made them last night, the cakes and the avocado sauce. It was a success!!! My husband even told me that this should be part of our "menu" next time we have people over 🙂
We made these yesterday and everyone loved them! This is a delicious party recipe.I followed all the directions and they were perfect.
Jesus Christ I'm really starting to get hungry here... it's the avocado 🙂
Just found your blog today looking for Mondongo recipes, and have been combing through for hours now. I'd like to try these, but may substitute tuna with crabmeat. Keep up the great work!
Just finished eating these patties for dinner and they were amazing! I didn't have breadcrumb so we substituted with crushed Cheez-it's. Delicious! Great job!
cheese it's.....that cracked me up, I really hope they were good, cuz I just may try that! :=)
Tried this recipe last night and it was a hit! I didn't have all of the ingredients but added cumin and seasoned breadcrumbs... delicious!
Made these tonight and LOVED them!! They had that slight kick I had been looking for. Will definitely be making these again!
Have can shrimp in pantry—can u use it in recipe?
I don't know! I don't use canned shrimp.
