Method

Step 1

Preparation: Boil the kettle. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Mashed sweet potatoes: Place a pot on high heat and add boiling water with a pinch of salt. Add the sweet potato cubes and boil for 15 minutes until soft. Drain, season with salt and pepper to taste and mash with a potato masher.

Step 3

Patties: Mix together the mash (1 cup for 4; ½ cup for 2; ¼ cup for 1), tuna, coriander, HALF the red onion, garlic, egg, salt and pepper and almond flour. Shape the mixture into patties (2 per person).

Step 4

Fried fish cakes: Place a pan on medium-high and coat the base with a few good glugs of olive oil (1cm deep). When hot, add the patties and shallow fry for 2-3 minutes a side until golden. When you flip the patties, make sure to do it gently, so they don’t fall apart. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Step 5

Dressing: Mix together wholegrain mustard and white wine vinegar, slowly whisk in a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Salad: Mix together cucumber, baby spinach and the REST of the red onion. Add the dressing and mix through.

Step 7

Serve the salad with the fish cake patties, mayonnaise and lemon wedges on the side.
