Step 1

Place chopped sweet potato in a microwave-safe dish, add about 1 tablespoon water, then cover. Cook in microwave for 8 minutes, or until tender.

Step 2

Drain and rinse under cold water. Transfer to a bowl and mash the sweet potato as if you're making mashed potatoes.

Step 3

Add all other ingredients, except the olive oil, and combine well. With your hands, divide mixture into 8 equal-sized patties.

Step 4

Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.

Step 5

Add the patties and cook for 3-5 minutes each side or until golden brown. Remove from oil and let rest on a serving plate lined with paper towel.

Step 6

These are quite good by themselves, but I also like to put a bit of cilantro chutney on top of each cooked tuna cake. I imagine a simple mayo, cilantro and lime sauce would taste great with these too.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



As recipe intro states, these are in fact really tasty and easy to make. I love how the cilantro comes through perfectly in this recipe. A keeper recipe ;)
