Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 5 serves
  • 4 medium kumara and/or potatoes, peeled, cut in chunks
  • 1 egg
  • 2 x 210g cans of tuna, salmon or flaked fish, well drained (alternatively, you could use fresh fish fillets but is a more expensive option)
  • 1 large spring onion, finely chopped
  • zest of a lemon
  • freshly ground salt and black pepper (used in 2 stages)
  • ½ c grated cheese or crumbled feta - optional (dairy free use 2 T nutritional yeast flakes)
Tomato Salsa
  • 2 tomatoes, diced (or capsicum/cucumber/corn kernels)
  • 1 stem of spring onion, finely sliced
  • handful of finely chopped fresh herbs such as coriander or basil
  • pinch of chilli powder or fresh chilli, optional
  • 1-2 T olive oil
250gm green beans, trimmed
  1. Put kumara/potatoes in a large pot, cover with water, add a pinch of salt, bring to the boil and cook about 15-20 minutes until soft. Add the green beans to a steamer basket over the kumara/potatoes while they are cooking for about 5 minutes until slightly tender but retaining some crunch. Set beans aside with the lid on to keep warm. (Alternatively, cook beans in a separate pot in a small amount of water for 2-3 minutes).
  2. Drain the kumara/potatoes and mash.
  3. Combine salsa ingredients and set aside. (Or for a saucier consistency, blend the ingredients in the food processor.)
  4. Add the egg, tuna/salmon/flaked fish, spring onion, lemon zest, salt and pepper, and cheese to the mashed kumara/potatoes. Mix to evenly combine. Using a ¼ c measure, form the mixture into even sized cakes.
  5. Heat oil in a fry pan over a medium heat, when warm add the fish cakes to the pan and cook for about 4 minutes each side until golden.
  6. Serve the fish cakes alongside steamed green beans and tomato salsa (in small ramekins if you like).
  7. Sprinkle over extra fresh herbs, and season with freshly ground salt and pepper.
