METHOD

  1. PATTIES:
  2. Boil the sweet potatoes in water until just falling apart. Drain and mash until smooth.

  13. Remove and spread a generous amount of mayonnaise inside each half.
  14. Pile some fresh rocket, your pilchard patty and cucumber ribbons on top of each other, finish with a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce and enjoy!
