Let's Make It
Bake the tuna for a few minutes at 400°F. Let cool completely and flake with a fork. In a bowl combine tuna, oil, egg(s), scallions, basil, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Mix gently until ingredients just hold together.
Form mixture into small balls -equal size- and press with your hand so it will look like a patty. Freeze on baking sheets until firm.
Preheat the oven to 300°F and place the cakes in a baking sheet for 5 minutes on each side. Cook cakes until golden brown. Serve hot.
