Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes

An easy light lunch or cheap and cheerful supper using tinned tuna. Serve with green beans or salad.


1 large potato, peeled and cubed
4 (3 ounce) cans tuna, drained
1 egg
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon dry breadcrumbs, or as needed
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil


Place the potato into a small pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two, then mash the potato with a potato masher or fork in a large bowl.
Mix the tuna, egg, onion, Dijon mustard, bread crumbs, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper into the mashed potato until well-blended. Divide the tuna mixture into 8 equal portions and shape into patties.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pan fry the tuna patties until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes on each side.
