Tuna is truly a nutrient-dense food. It’s an excellent source of protein as well as B vitamins and omega 3 – which we hear so much about these days! And these tasty fishcakes are ready in less than 30 mins.


  • 400g can tuna chunks in brine, drained
  • 400g pack Lancashire cheese mash
  • 2tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 100g wholemeal breadcrumbs


  • Flake the tuna and mix with the mashed potato, parsley and spring onions. Divide into 8 even portions and shape into patties, about 2cm thick.

  • Put the egg and breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes. Coat each fish cake, first in the egg and then in breadcrumbs.

  • Heat 100ml oil in a frying pan and cook the cakes for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Serve with a selection of vegetables.
