If I want my children to eat tuna then this is the recipe to get them to eat it.
It is a quick meal and very easy to make.


  • 5 Large Potatoes

  • Large Tin Tuna in Brine

  • 1 egg

  • Breadcrumbs

  • 2 shallots

  • Juice of half a lemon

  • extra breadcrumbs

  • Olive Oil for frying


  • 1.

    Peel & Boil Potatoes as if you were going to mash them.

  • 2.

    Once cooled mashed them a little bit, so they still have some lumps. (you can add a bit of milk & butter if you like).

  • 3.

    Drain tuna and add to potato's.

  • 4.

    Add egg, shallots, lemon and mix together.

  • 5.

    Add some breadcrumbs, just enough so everything is binding together.

  • 6.

    Make tuna mixture into patties and roll into extra breadcrumbs.

  • 7.

    Shallow cook patties until golden brown on both sides.

  • 8.

    Serve with a green salad.


*** You can squeeze some more lemon over the patties, plus these are great to take to work the next day ***
