Sundried Tomato and Tuna Brandade Cakes

While Brandade is originally a salted cod puree from French cuisine, we have used Flavoured Tuna instead of cod, mashed potatoes and other ingredients to create fish cakes, which when cooked are great for appetizers, snacks and sandwiches at lunch and dinner.
