Canned Fish and Oatmeal Cutlets

by Editorial Staff

A simple and quick version of a dish from available products – cutlets from canned fish and oatmeal. Despite the simple set of ingredients in the base, the cutlets are very tasty, juicy, with a crispy brown crust, and go well with vegetables, sour cream, and various sauces. And it’s easy to cook them. Such a wonderful recipe for budget cutlets is definitely worth taking note of!

Cook: 25 minutes

Servings: 2


  • Canned fish in oil or its own juice (I have saury) – 230 g (1 can)
  • Oatmeal flakes – 80 g (5 tablespoons with a slide + 1 teaspoon with a slide)
  • Large egg – 1 pc.
  • Onions (small) – 1 pc.
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper – to taste
  • Bread crumbs – 5 tbsp
  • Vegetable oil (for frying) – 2 tbsp


  1. Peel, wash, dry, and cut the onion into small cubes.
  2. Drain the liquid from canned fish, keeping 1-2 tbsp. Transfer the fish to a deep bowl and mash with a fork.
  3. Add chopped onion.
  4. Drive-in an egg.
  5. Pour in oatmeal, add salt and ground black pepper.
  6. Mix thoroughly and leave for about 4-5 minutes. The mass should be thick enough, homogeneous, and sticky. If it is dry, add a little liquid from canned fish and mix.
  7. Pour bread crumbs into a bowl suitable for rolling. With wet hands, take about 1/4 of the fish-oat mass, roll it into a bun, flatten it slightly, forming a cutlet, and roll it in breadcrumbs. In the same way, mold and breaded the rest of the cutlets. I got 4 rather large cutlets.
  8. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat and add cutlets.
  9. Fry the patties over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  10. Delicious canned fish and oatmeal cutlets are ready. Serve them to the table, adding fresh vegetables, sour cream, or any other sauce to your taste if desired.

Enjoy your meal!
