    Tuna and Chorizo Fishcakes

    Tuna and Chorizo Fishcakes.

    Serves 2

    Ingredients:

    1 x 130g tin of Tuna in oil (I like the 'no-drain' ones)
    1 - 2 oz of chorizo
    Cauliflower florets - I used about 5 average sized florets - about the size you would have with a Sunday roast
    1 egg
    Herbs of your choice - I used a 'fish herb mix' I had in the cupboard
    Smoked paprika - 1 - 2 tspns
    Lime juice - 1 - 2 tablespoons (or you could use vinegar if lime juice is a problem - I would use a lot less vinegar than lime juice though. Another option would be some finely grated lime zest)
    Salt and black pepper to taste

    As you can see (!) the amounts of the individual ingredients aren't too critical. Adjust to your taste/carb allowance/what you have in your kitchen

    Method:

    Steam the cauli until just soft, not mushy. Leave to drain for a while, then blot with kitchen roll to get them as dry as possible.

    Cut the chorizo into small chunks. I fried mine as I like the flavour.

    Mash the cauli roughly and add to the tuna with the chorizo. Mix together with herbs, paprika and lime juice. Mix in the egg. Taste and add salt and pepper to your taste.

    This made 8 small fishcakes. I made them up between two big spoons as the mix is a bit wet to handle. Cook on an oiled baking tray in the oven 180 - 200 degrees for around 20-25 mins, flipping over halfway through. Cooking time isn't critical, as long as they are nice and hot through to the middles.

    Delicious with Horseradish and Nutmeg Sauce:

    Fresh horseradish - about 1 - 1 /2 inch of an average root, grated
    Sour Cream - one tablespoon
    Double cream - one dessertspoonful
    Salt and black pepper - to taste
    Fresh grated nutmeg (or dried) - to taste

    Method - Bung it all together!

    If you cant get fresh horseradish you can add some nutmeg to horseradish sauce, if you can get a 'legal' one

    Hope you enjoy them after the sudden dash shopping trip! I was doing an online shop today and have ordered some tuna ready to make them later in the week, so it looks like they will be on several tables this week!

    Just had my delivery from Mr Tesco with my tuna and some more paprika, as my jar is nearly empty. These are definitely on the menu one day this week.

    ... and meant to say 'Glad you liked them.' I'm quite keen on a bit of fire in my food too!
