    Default tell me your salmon/tuna cake secrets

    we have salmon/tuna cakes every monday mum prepares tham, leaves them in the fridge and i cook them when i get home

    tyoically we use

    tuna/salmon
    egg
    onion
    potato/cuscus
    bread crumbs/wheat bix
    if cuscus is used we dont use bread crumbs

    problem is they always always stick to the pan and now we use the deep fryer to cook them in to retain their shape otherwise they turn to crumbs. and i hate hate hate using the deep fryer
    how do you get them to not stick

    Do you crumb the outside of them? That helps.

    Hot hot oil and quite a bit. They are cooked in the middle so only need to be warmed through and cooked on the outside

    I have baked them for DS (no breadcrumbs) and they were good. But not crispy.

    I reckon they would crisp up-maybe just a little spray of oil on them. Are the breadcrumbs in the actual mixture, or are they covered in breadcrumbs? Cos you cook chicken kievs in the oven and they go crispy.

    Yeah they are rolled in the crumbs. I'll give the oven a go fx lol

    I've tried the hot oil in the pan they still collapse. Same with meat balls I say I'm meat ball challenged lol

    I use a similar recipe, with mash potato, I just coat mine in flour and fry them I don't use a crumb and then I just cook them in a small amount of olive oil (non stick pan). They never stick.

    I put cooked rice in mine, plus usually peas and corn and fresh coriander , mix them with a beaten egg and coat in rice crumbs, leave in the fridge for 30 mins and fry in a little olive oil , never stick and always hold their shape !
