8 portions
  • 4 cans Tuna
  • 1 kilo potato
  • pending
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten with fork
  • 1 sachet ground bread
  • pinches black pepper
  • pinches salt


Open and drain the tuna cans, reserve.
Cook the potatoes with enough water, just cover them. To know if it is already cooked, insert a fork or a small knife and if it goes easy without pressing hard, they are ready. Approx. 10 minutes. (Depending on the size of the potato). Once cooked, let them drain and then remove the skin.
In a large bowl place the potatoes already drained and peeled, and crush them to make a dough. Add the pinch of salt and pepper, mix.
Add the drained tuna and revolver well to integrate. Form the croquettes with the hands of the desired size, personally, I like the size of the palm, neither too big nor too small. (They leave approximately 20 croquettes) Reserve.
Place half of the bread crumbs in an extended dish (add as necessary).
Pass the croquettes through the lightly beaten egg and then the crushed bread, making sure it is well breaded, one by one and reserve.
Fry in a pan (preferably Teflon so you do not burn a lot) with oil. Go turning until golden on both sides. Place the fried croquettes on a plate with serviettes or napkins to absorb the excess fat.


Accompany with red rice, salad and salsa of your choice.


Try not to overcook the potatoes so they can be molded.
