Quick, easy and inexpensive these tuna patties make a great light evening meal for the family. Serve with salad made of crisp lettuce, avocado and caperberries, or alternatively a selection of lightly steamed garden vegetables.

Serves 4

750g starchy potatoes, peeled, chopped

2/3 cup plain flour

425g can tuna in oil, drained, flaked

1 lemon, finely grated rind and ¼ cup juice

8 caperberries, finely chopped (plus
 extra caperberries for garnish)

2 eggs

salt and white pepper

2 egg yolks

2 cups dried or fresh breadcrumbs

2/3 cup extra light olive oil

2 pieces preserved lemon, pulp removed, skin finely chopped (optional)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 bunch frisse or baby curly endive, leaves separated

1 large avocado, thinly sliced

1 Put potato into a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium high and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain and roughly chop. Add ¹/₃ cup flour, tuna, lemon rind, 2 tbsp lemon juice, caperberries and 1 whisked egg. Season with salt and pepper and stir until well combined. Divide mixture into 8 and form them into patties.

2 Put remaining ¹/₃ cup flour into a shallow bowl. Whisk remaining egg in a shallow bowl with 1 tbsp cold water. Put breadcrumbs into another bowl. Lightly coat each pattie with flour,then dip into egg mixture and coat with breadcrumbs. Place onto a large plate.

3 Put egg yolks into a food processor 
with remaining lemon juice. Process for 
30 seconds. With motor running, slowly add extra light olive oil until a thick creamy mayonnaise forms. Add preserved lemon if using. Process until combined.

4 Heat olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add 4 patties and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden and heated through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Cook remaining patties the same way.

5 Serve patties with a dollop of mayonnaise, and a caperberry or two, season with rock salt and add salad and a lemon wedge on the side.

into a bowl and toss until well combined.
