Polenta Crumbed Potato And Tuna Patties





Looking for something economical, tasty and nutritious for your midweek dinner? Well I think I might just have the answer for you!

Contrary to popular belief potato doesn't make us fat but the lack of exercise, potato chips and mash laden with fats are the main culprits. In fact the slow energy releasing starch in potato makes us full and satisfied without resorting to overeating, another reason for the thickening midsections. Together with everyone's pantry favourite - canned tuna and a few other easy to get ingredients, a wholesome meal can be prepared in less than an hour.

For those who are not big fans of deep fried food, you can easily bake these patties in the oven. To do that simply place the patties onto a non stick oven tray, lightly spray with canola oil and bake in a hot oven (200 C) until golden (~25 to 30 minutes)

For something a little more fancy please check out my salmon fish cakes with salsa or if you prefer something vegetarian how about my panko crumbed sweet potato and red lentil patties instead?



recipe from the tummies' kitchen
makes 12
you will need;
6 potatoes, boiled till tender, peeled and mashed
1 onion, chopped, sauteed with a little oil until soften
1 can of tuna in spring water, drained well
half a bunch of parsley, finely chopped (~1/2 cup)
1 tbs of capers, chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of polenta
oil for frying
relish of your choice to serve



Cook the potatoes until tender, when they are cool enough to handle peel and set aside.



Mash potatoes in a large bowl then add in the rest of the ingredients except for the polenta and oil.



Mix everything well and check for seasonings.



Form little patties with wet hands then lightly press the patties down onto the bowl polenta. You may crumb them with normal or Japanese breadcrumbs instead but I really love that light crunchy crust from the polenta. Place the crumbed patties in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up before frying.



Fry patties in batches until golden brown and drain well on kitchen towels.



Serve tuna patties with a simple salad and some relish on the side.

  3. I make exactly the same thing but generally add in some vegetables (grated carrot, corn, peas), use breadcrumbs or cornflakes to coat and pan fry instead of deep fry. Easy weekday meal (and good for using leftovers).

  5. I made something similar with canned salmon the other day and I am very curious about using polenta to crumb the patties.

  6. Potatoes are good for you! But people tend to deep fry them which makes them unhealthy. These look amazing!

  8. Omg.. These is a good excuse to eat something deep fried while forgiving myself just slightly because it's got fish and veg instead of just meat. Paired with that beautiful relish and with some salads on the side. What a tasty, wholesome and complete meal you've got there. Yummy!!

  9. Yes, this looks like a wonderful, flavorful way to enjoy potatoes! I will remember this.

  10. Love this one. Replaced tuna with salmon and discarded the capers. Also added some grated pecorino cheese. What a tasty meal.... especially the leftovers the next day!

  11. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!
