  • 100g wholemeal bread
  • 88g pack Smash Instant Mash Potato
  • ½ level tsp Asda Onion Granules
  • 2 x 185g cans Chosen by you Tuna Chunks in Sunflower Oil
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Frozen green beans and sweetcorn, to serve
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Put the bread on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes. Cool, then whizz in a processor or with a hand-held blender to make crumbs. Put on a large plate. Line the baking tray with baking paper.

  • Put the potato in a bowl with the onion granule. Add 375ml boiling water and mix to make mash that's a bit stiffer than usual. Cool.

  • Drain the tuna, then pat with kitchen paper to remove excess oil. Add to the mash with the ketchup. Shape into 8 cakes.

  • Put the egg in a shallow dish. Coat the fish cakes first in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs. Bake for 20 minutes until golden and crispy. Serve with green beans and sweetcorn.
