These patties are a classic recipe that’s been around for years. The tuna mix is made all the more tasty thanks to the addition of sweet corn, potatoes, herbs and a little horseradish for good measure.
It’s as simple as mix and mould, with the patties rolled in breadcrumbs to create a lovely crunchy coating.
Shallow fry until they’re crispy and golden and then serve immediately with steamed veg or a side salad. They’re great for lunch the next day, too — just zap them in the microwave for about 45 seconds and enjoy!
