Best recipe review

I call these fritters


And they are great - especially with lots of chilli sauce.

Mise en place


  1. Add the prawns, egg, ginger, chilli and salt to a food processor with a metal blade and pulse until roughly combined.
  2. Fork the mixture into the mashed potatoes, together with the coriander and spring onions
  3. Form into little balls and flatten them into small discs.
  4. Press the edges and both sides of the cakes into breadcrumbs and pan-fry them in vegetable oil for 4 minutes a side

Serving suggestions

User:Robin's serving suggestion:

Serve with some mayonnaise, mixed with lots of very finely chopped onion and a good amount of wasabi-paste. (There isn't any onion in the wasabi mayonnaise in the photo, but trust me, it's nicer with it.)

Chef's notes

When you make mash, make double or treble the amount and freeze the remainder in single or double portion plastic bags. Great for recipes like this!
