• 450g (1lb) potatoes, cut into cubes
  • 200g (7oz) (1 cup) canned tuna, drained and flaked
  • 2 spring onions or scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 tbsp sour cream
  • 50g (2oz) (½ cup) Kerrygold Cheddar, grated
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 50g (2oz) (1 cup) fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 25g (1oz) (2 tbsp) Kerrygold Pure Irish Unsalted Butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • sweet chilli sauce and steamed French green beans, to serve


This is a great recipe that can be made when there is nothing much in the fridge. If you haven’t got sour cream replace with mayonnaise or shop-bought tartare sauce for a slightly different result but delicious nonetheless.
  1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water for 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain and mash well, then fold in the tuna, spring onions or scallions, parsley, sour cream and cheese. Season to taste. Divide into eight portions and shape into triangles using two palette knives or into small patties.
  2. Dust the fish triangles with flour and then dip in the beaten egg and coat in the breadcrumbs. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan with the butter. Add the tuna fish triangles and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden and drain on kitchen paper.
  3. To serve, arrange the crispy tuna fish triangles on warmed plates with a spoonful of sweet chilli sauce and some French green beans.
