Tuna Patties with Crispy Roast Potatoes

Serves: 4 (makes 12 patties) | Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 15 – 20 minutes



  • 4-5 potatoes, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 3 cups leafy greens

Fish Patties:

  • 500g Sirena tuna
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons coriander leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemongrass, finely chopped
  • 1 large red chilli, seeded, finely chopped
  • ½ cup spring onions, sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 limes, halved


  • 3 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coriander, chopped


1. To make the potatoes; preheat oven to 200C. Place potatoes into a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Simmer for 7 – 10 minutes or until partially cooked. Drain the potatoes in a colander then shake the colander back and forth a few times to fluff the outsides (this will help make them crispy). Drizzle potatoes with a tablespoon olive oil, white wine vinegar and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread potatoes out on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Roast in oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and turn over. Roast for a further 20 minutes, or until golden and crisp.

2. To make the patties: flake the tuna into a bowl and add breadcrumbs, kaffir lime leaves, coriander, lemongrass, chillies, spring onions, eggs, fish sauce, lime juice and pepper. Shape into 12 patties. Heat some of the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and cook the patties, in batches, until they are golden brown. Add oil to the pan as you need it. 

3.To make the sauce: combine all ingredients in a blender and blitz for 30 seconds to combine.

4. Serve the patties with a drizzle of sauce. We love having them with some leafy greens and roasted potatoes 🙂
