Tuna and Corn Fritters

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by amanda l b

These little fritters - or 'tuna pancakes' as my 5 year old calls them, are fast and nutricious - and loved by big and little people alike - especially my very fussy 5 year old. You can even can add sweet chilli sauce and some fresh coriander to give them an Asian flavour.

Really nice. Doubled up the recipe to make about 8 patties in the end and put some coriander instead of parsley. I agree that you want to keep them on one side for a bit longer to let them keep consistency, also a good "flipper" to turn them quick is a good idea :-)
