This recipe serves 24 pieces.

Plate of prawn & sweet potato fritters with healthy vegetables 


300g of sweet potatoes
20g of fresh coriander stalks
3 spring onions
300g prawns ( you can use raw or already cooked prawns in this recipe)
100g of plain flour 
140g of water
1 pinch of baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of white pepper
1000g sunflower or olive oil (optional)
2 limes (optional)
sweet chilli dipping sauce (optional)
  1. Chop up sweet potatoes ,coriander stalks and spring onions. Put them into an electric mixer and blend until the ingredients are chopped up into small little pieces. 
  2. Now add the prawns to the mixing bowl and blend (You will still want to see little pieces of prawn in the mixture).
  3. Add flour, baking powder, water, salt and pepper then blend .
  4. Leave mixture to stand for 10 mins before cooking.
  5. You can either fry these in oil or as a healthier alternative you can air fry them if you have one .
  6. If you're choosing to air fry them I would roll them up into individual little balls and put them on some cling foil and fry them for 18 minutes at 200 degrees .
  7. If you want to fry them you can heat up some vegetable or olive oil in a pan to the depth of 2cm . When the oil is hot, carefully drop the individual balls of prawn mixture into the hot oil, leaving plenty of space between each one.
  8. Fry fritters for 2 minutes on both sides until crisp and browned. Once done remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
  9. Finish off by adding some coriander leaves, season with a bit of salt and serve with some lemon and chili sauce if desired.
