Tuna fish cakes

5 Aug

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4

Cost per person £2.65



  • 2 tins of tuna
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 pinches of salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp roughly chopped garlic
  • 1 tbsp roughly chopped rosemary
  • 1 large red chilli , finely chopped de-seeded if preferred
  • 4 large Maris piper potatoes
  • half a bunch of spring onions roughly chopped
  • 2 tomatoes roughly diced
  • 2 courgettes cut into strips, use a potato peeler to get nice thin strips
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp sugar


First boil the potatoes to make mash (just potatoes and seasoning) Whilst the taties are boiling mix the tuna, egg, half the garlic, half the spring onions, rosemary and then mix together with the mash. This is your mix to make the fish cakes, make into patties and dust with flour. Pan fry for about 7-10 minutes turning frequently and covering with a lid if poss. stir fry the courgettes for about a minute then mix with the rest of the spring onion, chilli, tomato, sugar, lemon juice to make a salsa. (use the green bits of the spring onion) Serve with haricot beans mixed with the rest of the garlic and a dash of olive oil. If you like serve with a herb Mayo as I have done, just herbs chopped up and mixed into shop bought Mayo.
