Sweet Potato and Tuna Breakfast Fritters

From Albert Bevia:
TIPS & TRICKS to make these FRITTERS: Once you shred your sweet potato, it is so IMPORTANT to squeeze out as much as possible of the water in the sweet potato. I added mine to a cheesecloth and twisted the water out over a sink. This is what gives these fritters that incredible crispy texture. Some of you might be thinking ¨geez….I don´t have 30 minutes to make breakfast!¨. SOLUTION: Make the fritter batter the night before and add it to the fridge. In the morning fry up your fritters and whala, breakfast is served in a jiffy.

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 tins Spanish tuna in olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 onion
  • handful fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 organic cage-free eggs
  • 1/2 tsp sweet smoked Spanish paprika
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Pell and wash one sweet potato, shred the sweet potato over a cutting board or shallow bowl, grab 3 cups of the shredded sweet potato and add to a cheesecloth, over a sink twist the cloth and try to remove as mush as possible of the water in the sweet potatoes, then add to a large bowl
  2. Drain 2 tins of tuna in olive oil and add to the bowl with the shredded sweet potatoes, also add 1 large shredded or minced clove of garlic, a 1/4 cup of diced onions, 2 tbsp freshly chopped chives and a 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour, in a seperate bowl whisk 2 eggs and then add to the bowl with the rest of the ingredients, season everything with a 1/2 tsp of sweet smoked paprika, a pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  3. Mix all the ingredients together until you form a paste, then grab about a 1/4 cup of the mixture and shape it into a ball, add to parchment paper, continue to do this until all the mixture is gone, you should get about 9 to 10 balls, then gently push each one down, you want a circular design that is 1/2 inch thick
  4. Heat a large frying pan with a medium heat, after 4 minutes add in a generous 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and start adding the fritters, cook in batches to not over-crowd the pan, after 2 1/2 to 3 minutes flip the fritters, after another 2 1/2 to 3 minutes start removing them from the pan and transfer to a dish with paper towels, continue to cook until they are all done
  5. To make the garlic yogurt sauce, add 1/2 cup Greek yogurt into a bowl, shred in 1 clove of garlic, squeeze in 1/2 tsp lemon juice, pour in 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and season with sea salt & black pepper, whisk together until well combined
  6. Add the garlic yogurt sauce to a plate and decorate the fritters around it, sprinkle with freshly chopped chives, enjoy!
