Recipe: Tuna Fish Cakes

These tuna cakes were on a whim one day. I had a few extra potatoes that I had cooked, and I had a few leftover biscuits from breakfast. So I decided to try making something with all that.

Let’s start with the ingredients:

  • 1 large can (12 ounces) of tuna
  • something to make breadcrumbs (I used a single biscuit/scone from that morning)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 small potatoes or 1 large one
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion flakes (or 1/2 of a small onion, chopped)

First, boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes.

Next, mash the potatoes in a bowl (or using a food processor or blender).

Then, turn your biscuit into breadcrumbs: just pulverize them in a food processor! I don’t toast them or anything.

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients.

In a skillet, heat some butter (or oil, but I love butter) on medium heat. We have an electric stove, and I used mark 5.

They should cook about 6-8 minutes on one side then another 3-4 on the other side.

These are NOT salty! Since they’re baby-friendly, I did not add salt, but you can add some on your own plate.

Another option: Scoop a few baby-friendly cakes into the skillet. THEN add salt to the rest of the mixture and make the rest of the cakes.

We ate these with sweet potato pancakes and couscous.
