Ingredients – makes 8 tuna cakes

  • 600g sweet potatoes
  • 2 spring onions
  • 300g tinned tuna (drained)
  • 1 egg
  • 200g polenta, or breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

How to make it

  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them into small chunks, then boil in a pan of water for 20 minutes. Drain well, then mash.
  2. Finely chop the spring onions and add to the mash with the tuna and the egg. Mix together well.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, then divide the mixture into eight ball-shaped cakes. Slightly flatten these with your palm.
  4. Put the polenta (or breadcrumbs) on a plate and cover each tuna cake in it (make sure you cover the sides of the cakes too).
  5. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Pan fry the tuna cakes one by one on each side, turning them carefully, until they are crispy.
  6. Leave them to cool for a few minutes before serving.
