Method

This dish works just as well with tinned salmon, and is a quick and tasty way to use up any leftover mash.

  1. Cook the spring onions in the butter until soft then tip into a mixing bowl. Add the mash, tinned tuna, seaweed if using, dill, lemon zest and season.
  2. Lightly mix together with a fork then divide into 4 balls, then form into fishcakes. If you have time, transfer to a plate, cover and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes
  3. Take 3 bowls, add flour to one, beaten egg to one and the breadcrumbs mixed with the parsley to the third.
  4. Gently roll each fishcake in the flour, dip into the egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook for about 8-10 minutes over medium heat until golden and crisp.
  6. Meanwhile to make the salad, toss all the ingredients together and serve with the fishcakes.
