Method

Cook the spring onions in the softened butter until soft then tip into a mixing bowl. Pop in the mash, drained tinned tuna, seaweed, chopped dill and a little salt and milled pepper. Lightly mix everything together with a fork then divide into 4 balls, form into a fishcake shape. If you have time chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Take 3 bowls, add flour to one, beaten egg to one and the breadcrumbs mixed with the chopped parsley to the third.

Gently roll each cake in the flour, dip into the egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs.

Fry the fishcakes in the sunflower oil for about 8-10 minutes over a medium heat until golden and crisp.

Meanwhile to make the salad, simply toss all the ingredients together and serve alongside the fishcakes.
