Completely Keto Tuna Croquettes

In a small, cozy kitchen filled with the aroma of spices, Chris, a dedicated keto dieter and a lover of comfort food, found himself craving something crispy, savory, and satisfying. Living a ketogenic lifestyle had many benefits, but Chris often missed the simple pleasures of traditional comfort foods. Determined to create a dish that would satisfy his cravings without breaking his carb limit, Chris decided to experiment with one of his pantry staples: canned tuna.

Drawing inspiration from his grandmother’s classic croquette recipe, Chris set out to craft a keto-friendly version. He knew that the key to achieving the perfect texture and flavor lay in choosing the right ingredients. Almond flour, with its fine texture and nutty flavor, became the base for his croquettes, replacing the high-carb breadcrumbs found in traditional recipes. To add richness and bind the ingredients together, he opted for Primal Kitchen Mayo made with avocado oil, a choice that added healthy fats and moisture.

Eggs provided additional binding, while a carefully measured blend of pink Himalayan salt, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder infused the croquettes with a robust flavor profile. Chris chose avocado oil for frying, its high smoke point making it an ideal choice for achieving a golden, crispy exterior without compromising the health benefits of his creation.

The result was a batch of “Completely Keto Tuna Croquettes” that were not only delicious but also perfectly aligned with Chris’s dietary needs. They became an instant hit among his friends and family, proving that with a bit of creativity and the right ingredients, even the most stringent diet could still make room for the comforting flavors of home-cooked classics. Chris’s croquettes were more than just a meal; they were a bridge between his current lifestyle and the cherished food memories of his past.
