- 4 small potatoes
- 200g tuna, poached in a little olive oil
- 1/4 carrot, finely chopped
- Half a red onion, finely chopped
- 3-4 basil leaves, finely chopped
- 6-8 sprigs of chives, finely chopped
- A pinch of sea salt
- 2 tablespoons corn flour
- 1 egg, roughly beaten
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- A handful of flat leave parsley, roughly torn into small sprigs
- 1 or 2 limes
- Peel and cut the potatoes into small chunks, boil till you can poke a fork through the
chunks easily. Drain the water, mash the potato chunks into a paste.
- Add in the poached tuna, carrot, onion, basil, chives, corn flour and sea salt; mix well.
- Heat the oven to 180°C. Pour about 5 mm depth of sun flower seed oil into a baking tray of roughly 6"x10".
- Divide the mixture into 12 similar-sized balls, slightly flatten each and dip in the egg then carefully coat each fish
cake with bread crumbs. Place all the fish cakes in the baking tray.
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes before turning the bottom side up and bake for another 10 minutes.
- Garnish with parsley, squeeze some lime over the fish cakes and serve with hot boiled rice.
- Makes 12.
- If you can't get hold of fresh tuna, you can substitute it with a 185g canned tuna in olive oil. You can
even use other fish of you like.
- Some people may prefer to fry it in a pan or wok, but doing it in the oven will ensure that
each fish cake is evenly hot when served; and it saves you lots of mess and hassle.
- Try having it with some dipping sauce of your choice, such asfor example chilli sauce or barbecue sauce.
