Recipe by: Frugal Farm Wife

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 servings


Tuna Balls:
2 5-oz cans of  Solid White Albacore Tuna, drained
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoon paleo flour blend, substitute almond flour if desired
1 tablespoon chives or parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt and pepper, to taste
¼ cup of paleo or almond flour for coating

Garlic Zoodles:
2 zucchinis, medium sized
1 teaspoon olive oil, extra virgin recommended
1 teaspoon of chopped garlic, about 2 cloves
1 teaspoon of salt & pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add tuna into a mixing bowl with the egg and combine. Incorporate remaining ingredients to bowl and stir.

Roll the tuna mixture into 12 balls, about the size of a walnut. Dredge the balls in the flour blend and arrange on cookie sheet. Place in the oven to bake for 10 minutes.

While your tuna balls are baking, use a spiralizer or julienne both zucchinis to make zoodles. Toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Transfer the zoodles to a skillet and sauté until they start steaming. Add garlic and stir continuously until zucchini is crisp yet tender.

Check on the tuna balls to see if they are golden brown and remove both from heat.

Plate everything by adding tuna balls on top of the zoodles. Top with your favorite marinara, Alfredo, or pesto sauce if desired. Enjoy!
