- Boil a large pot of salted water.
- Cut the sweet potato into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
- Remove the skin from the fish. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
- Cook the potatoes in the boiling water until fork tender, 15-20 mins.
- Once potatoes are done, add the fish. Simmer until cooked through, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.
- While the potatoes boil, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
- Trim the carrot then coarsely grate (no need to peel).
- Chop the tomatoes into 1cm pieces.
- Zest and then juice the lemon.
- To make your sweet chilli drizzle, mix together 1 tbsp sugar (double for 4p), lemon zest, lemon juice and chilli flakes (use less if you don't like spice). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Once the sweet potato and salmon are cooked, drain everything in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat.
- Mash the salmon and sweet potato together until smooth.
- Add the garlic, Thai spice mix and breadcrumbs to the mash.
- Season with ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper (double both for 4p).
- Mix until everything is combined. Roll into evenly-sized balls then shape into 2cm thick patties, 2 per person.
- Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- Once hot, fry the fishcakes until golden, 4-5 mins.
- Turn over and cook on the other side for a further 4-5 mins.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl for the salad, mix together the mayo, a pinch of salt and pepper and 2 tbsp oil (double for 4p).
- Just before serving, toss the grated carrot, chopped tomato and salad leaves through the dressing.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Divide the tasty Thai fishcakes between plates and serve with the sweet chilli drizzle.
- Plate the crunchy salad alongside.
