Tuna Fish Cakes

With A Blast: Tuna Fish Cakes #snacks #fishrecipe

These fish cakes are feather light, despite all the ingredients.  This would make a great savory snack with a dipping sauce, lunch or part of a light dinner.

Tuna is probably the fish which we eat most at home {the canned type - I am no good with fresh fish!} - it is also great for anyone on a diet ... when using the Tuna in Brine, that is.

This recipe is deliciously moist on the inside and crispy on the outside.


{makes 10 - 12 fish cakes}

2 cans (175g each) Tuna in Brine, well drained
6 Spring Onions, chopped
3/4 cup canned Corn   {not the creamy type}
Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 TB Lemon Juice
3 Eggs, beaten
2/3 cups Flour
1/2 t Salt
Oil for frying    {bake - if on diet!]

1.) Combine the Tuna, Spring Onions, Corn, Lemon Juice and season with Black Pepper.
2.) Mix the Eggs, Flour and Salt - add to the Tuna mixture - mix well.
3.) Heat a little Oil in a pan - scoop spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan - flatten slightly {the mixture is quite moist, but once in the pan, it will settle quickly} - fry both sides until golden brown and done.

Serve with salads, vegetables or a dipping sauce.



With A Blast

Linking up with these cool parties - also see me complete Party List:


  1. My mom used to make Salmon cakes when I was little. I forgot all about it until now. :)

  2. My Mum made these as well you've just brought childhood memoirs back :), funny I've never made them for my lot but I only use canned fish, jules uses fresh fish for some is he's but I can't cook it.

  3. We don't eat a lot of fish .... but I always have cans of tuna on hand because that is one I know all of my family will eat! Pinned this - love that you can make it light by baking it too :)

  4. Although Sam likes tuna, I'm not a fan. I'll show him this and maybe he'll give it a try and get some tuna once in a while! He's becoming quite the chef lately!
