Per meal




Cut potatoes into mashable chunks, and boil until soft. Finely slice the garlic, parsley and spring onion (white and light green part only). Mash potatoes and mix in tuna, spring onions, parsley, garlic, breadcrumbs, and egg until well combined. Form mixture into 8 patties and coat with flour. Heat up peanut oil in pan and fry patties until coloured on both sides, approximately 3 minutes on both sides.

Serve with a side salad.


If the mixture is too wet, add some flour and more breadcrumbs.
