Korean Tuna Cakes (Chamchijeon). Delicious, filling, spicy and savoury. A fantastic side dish to make for dinner or lunch. Only takes 20-30 minutes to whip up!
I love the meaty texture of these Korean style tuna cakes along with that spicy kick.
If you're not a fan of spice you may omit the red chillis but I really enjoy it. The sesame seeds and oil is also so key! It really gives my Korean tuna fish cake such a wonderful nutty aroma.
