Tuna & Sweet Potato Fishcakes

This is one of my favourite meals to make. Not only are these fishcakes super simple and quick to prep but they are delicious.

The thing I hate about the fishcakes you usually find in restaurants, is that they tend to be all potato and hardly any fish. Also,  (as someone who is gluten free) I hardly ever find ones that don’t have some kind of flour or breadcrumbs in them.

That’s why I love these. The flour I use is just ground almonds and the potato I just switch for a Sweet Potato. The combo is yummy!


Serves 2

  • Peeled Sweet Potato- 400g
  • Tuna Steak in Spring Water Drained 300g
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Large Organic Egg
  • ½ tsp Good quality sea salt
  • 1 TBS Freshly chopped or dried Coriander leaf (opt)
  • 15 g Ground Almonds (1/4 cup)
  • 1-2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 100 g cherry tomatoes halved (opt)


  • After peeling the sweet potato, chop into quarters and boil until soft but not too soggy (approx. 10-15mins)
  • Sieve and set aside to cool
  • Lightly grease a baking sheet or tin-foiled oven rack  (preferably with coconut oil)
  • Pre-Heat oven to bake at 180 degrees
  • Put the tuna and rest of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and ass the sweet potato once it’s cooled.
  • Be prepared to get your hands dirty and knead the mixture together until all combined evenly.
  • Grab a small handful of the mixture and form into a ball/patty (see above picture) and place on baking sheet. Try not to let the fishcakes get too close to one another as they will expand a little when cooked.
  • Place on middle shelf in over for 20 mins.
  • Remove and turn each one over and bake again for another 10 mins.

Serve with side vegetables or salad of your choice.
