  • 500 g Potatoes (peeled and cut into chunks)
  • 2 x 160g (120g drained) Tinned Tuna chunks in water
  • 2 Spring Onion (finely chopped)
  • Juice of one lime
  • Small handful of chopped Coriander (cilantro)
  • Bread Crumbs (super fine)
  • Oil for coating / frying


  • Cook the potatoes until tender, drain and mash.
  • Add the tuna, spring onion, lime juice, coriander and stir until combined.
  • Shape the cakes with your hands (I made around 16 cakes)
  • Roll in the breadcrumbs until coated.
  • Heat a non stick frying pan and lightly spray with oil, fry on both sides until golden.
  • Alternatively spray the fish cakes with oil and cook in a pre heated oven (200c / 400F) for 20-25 mins or until golden. Turn halfway through cook time and spray the other side of the fish cakes before returning to oven.
