1 celery stick, ends trimmed, finely chopped
1 carrot, peeled, finely chopped

Cook potato in a steamer basket over a saucepan of simmering water for 15 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl. Mash until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour to chill.
Add the tuna, celery, carrot, corn, parsley and egg yolk to the mash. Season with salt and pepper and stir until well combined.
Divide mixture into 12 portions. Shape each portion into a patty. Place breadcrumbs on a plate. Add the patties and turn to coat.
Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook 4 patties for 3 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with remaining patties.
Serve patties with sweet chilli sauce and salad leaves.
Freezing tip: Cool. Wrap each patty in 2 layers of plastic wrap. Place in an airtight container. Label, date and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in fridge.
