Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes

This is a pretty cheap recipe to make, just using up some things that we had in the cupboards. I have been working a lot this weekend on the computer, so have not had time to go out and get any shopping, but managed to rustle up this nice fish cake meal out of not very much! They are actually less complicated than I thought they would be to make. The addition of the cheese means that they are not as healthy as they could have been, but this sticks everything together rather well. You could use egg instead.

  • 500 g potatoes - peeled, boiled and mashed.
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 nob butter
  • 1 handful fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Thai 7 Spices
  • 50 g cheddar cheese - grated
  • 1 tin tuna fish in water (I prefer this to the ones in oil)
  • Flour for dusting
  • Cooking spray
Melt the butter in a pan, then gently fry the onion, garlic and chilli for about 5 minutes. Add this in to the mashed potato along with the Thai spices, chopped coriander leaves and cheese. Mash this all together.

Now drain the tuna and add this in with the potatoes. Gently mix it in so that its thoroughly mixed, but still with some nice chunks of tuna in there.

Make this into 4 balls and squash them into flat round fish cakes. Dust with flour. Place on a baking tray coated with cooking spray, and then cook in the oven at 200C for about 30 minutes, turning a couple of times during the cooking. They should be just golden when done, and crispy.

Serve with some fresh vegetables and some sweet chilli sauce for dipping into.
