You can also deep fry these – but if you do coat in bread crumbs first. I sometimes add cheese or bacon or both, but this can make them a little greasy, so add a bit more lemon juice to combat it!

Ingredients (makes 8 cakes)

  • 4 Large Potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh chopped Dill
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 Can Tuna - drained
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Squeeze Lemon Juice
  • 1 egg


  1. Peel and dice potatos. Cook til soft, then mash (you can use a little butter).
  2. Mix in herbs and tuna, salt and pepper and squeeze of lemon.
  3. Beat egg and add to mix. (if too moist add a small amount of bread crumb, if not moist enough add another egg)
  4. Form into balls. Place on baking tray (either greased or paper lined) gently flatten balls. Cook for around half hour or until golden. Serve with salad.
