Personally, I don’t really like tuna, so these are definitely made for the kids rather than me. However, they do make great fish cakes for everyone. I think they’re my little boy’s favourite thing to eat!


2 large potatoes
185g tin tuna (in spring water)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
25g unsalted butter
25-50g breadcrumbs (toasted works best)


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6
  • Peel the potatoes, cut them into small pieces and boil them until they are soft
  • Add the butter
  • Drain the tuna and break it up
  • When the potatoes are cooked, add the tuna and lime juice, and mix well
  • Shape the mixture into burger shapes, then coat them in breadcrumbs
  • Place them on the baking sheet and bake for 20 mins until browned and cooked through


These fish cakes can be made with salmon instead of tuna for a bit of a “fancier” dinner
