• 300g potatoes (peeled weight) and quartered
  • 4 tbsp whole milk
  • 2 x 160g cans tuna chunks in sunflower oil, drained and flaked
  • 1/2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 100g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • Steamed broccoli, to serve (40g for children aged up to 3 and 80g for adults)
  • 1 x 120g Sainsbury’s Bistro Salad
  • 198g (1 small can) sweetcorn


  1. 1

    Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the potatoes and cook until the potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to dry in the colander.

  2. 2

    Tip the potatoes into a bowl and mash them, then stir in the whole milk, tuna, sweetcorn and dried herbs. Shape into 4 adult-portion cakes and 10 child-portion cakes and transfer to a lined baking tray. Chill for 30 minutes until firm.

  3. 3

    Dip each cake into the egg, letting any excess drip off, then coat in the breadcrumbs, returning to the baking tray. Chill for a further 10 minutes.

  4. 4

    Heat half the oil in a frying pan and add half the fish cakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden. Transfer to a low oven to keep warm and cook the remaining fish cakes in the remaining oil. Serve with the steamed broccoli and salad leaves.
