Sweet Potato & Fish Cakes with Smashed Avocado
For a quick easy dinner that will please everyone, try these beautiful Sweet Potato & Tuna Patties. They could also be served as a nice side if you made them a bit smaller.


2 large sweet potato’s (peeled)
1 onion
2 tablespoon olive or coconut oil
2 tablespoons of curry paste (from the Asian section of your supermarket)
1 large can tuna/salmon/smoked fish
1 egg
1/4 cup coconut flour
Salt & pepper to taste
1 avocado
1/2 lime

Roughly chop the sweet potato and place in a pot of boiling water, cook on medium heat until tender and then drain. Finely chop the onion and place in a hot pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sauté on a medium heat until the onion turns transparent. In the pan with the onions, add two tablespoons of curry paste and sauté together until the mix is fragrant. Turn the pan off and set aside.

In the pot, mash the drained sweet potato, add the can of fish, onion mix, egg, coconut flour & salt to taste. Heat a clean pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Form patties using a large tablespoon and cook 4 patties at once. Turn the patties when brown on each side.

To make the avocado mash, peal avocado and mash with a folk. Squeeze 1/2 a lime onto the avocado and season with salt and pepper.

Serve the cooked patties with the avocado mash on top and ENJOY!
