What did the carrot say to the chorizo? No, seriously, we don’t know. As soon as we tried these golden cheesy fritters we gobbled them all up and now they ain’t talkin’! Good thing this dish speaks for itself.

chorizo(May be present Milk, Soy)
mixed salad leaves
Grate the sweet potato (unpeeled) until you have 1 cup tightly packed for 2 people/ 2 cups tightly packed for 4 people. Grate the Mozzarella cheese. Finely chop the coriander leaves. Remove and discard the skin from the chorizo and finely chop the chorizo meat. Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Dice the cucumber.
In a large bowl, combine the grated sweet potato, Mozzarella, coriander (1 tbs for 2 people) / 2 tbs for 4 people), chorizo meat, plain flour, egg and smoked paprika. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and mix well.
Take ¼ cup of the fritter mixture into your hands and pack it tightly until it takes the shape of a fritter. Set the fritter aside. Repeat with the remaining fritter mixture (you should get 3-4 fritters per person).
Add enough olive oil to coat the base of a large frying pan and heat over a medium-high heat. Add 3-4 fritters to the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Set aside on a plate lined with paper towel. Add another dash of olive oil (if needed) to the pan and repeat with the remaining fritters. TIP: Cooking the fritters in two batches gives them enough space to cook evenly.
In a medium bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and a drizzle of olive oil. Season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper. Just before serving, add the carrot, cucumber and mixed salad leaves and toss to coat.
Divide the cheesy chorizo and sweet potato fritters between plates. Serve with the fresh salad and a dollop of Greek yoghurt on the side.
