Kids always love burgers and these simple tuna burgers are a nice alternative to minced beef.


  1. Cut the potatoes into chunks, then boil in lightly salted water for 10 -12 minutes until tender. Drain and mash with the mayonnaise.
  2. When cool add the tuna, sweet corn and parsley, season with black pepper the mix well. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and form into fish cakes about 2.5cm/1” thick.
  3. Press each patty lightly on each side into the breadcrumbs. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Lightly spray with spray oil and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden, turning halfway through. Serve 2 burgers per portion with half a tomato.


  • Serve with grilled halved cherry tomatoes if preferred.
