300g sweet potato
150g skinless and boneless haddock fillet
50g Panko breadcrumbs
2 large eggs
2 cloves of garlic
3 Tbsp fresh parsley
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp dried oregano
- Preheat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with aluminium foil.
- Place the haddock fillets on the foil and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until flaky and cooked through.
- Remove from the oven and set aside. Set the oven to 200C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- With a fork, pierce the whole surface of the potatoes and place them on a microwave-safe plate.
- Cook on full power (800W) for 4 minutes. Flip them and cook for 2 extra minutes or until they are soft enough for a fork to pass through. Let them cool down.
- Meanwhile, break the haddock fillet into small flakes and put it in a bowl.
- Mince the garlic, finely chop the parsley and beat 1 egg.
- Add the garlic, parsley, egg and oregano to the bowl with the haddock.
- Cut the potatoes in halves lengthwise, scoop out the flesh and mash it in a bowl with the olive oil and the lemon juice.
- Add the mashed potatoes to the bowl and mix all the ingredients well.
- Take a tablespoon of the mixture at a time, shape it into nuggets and place it on the parchment paper.
- Let set in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to firm up.
- Meanwhile, beat the egg in a shallow bowl and place the breadcrumbs on a plate.
- Dip each nugget into the egg mixture and then coat with the breadcrumbs. Place on the baking tray.
- Bake at 200C for 15-20 minutes or until golden and crispy.
- You can make these ahead and freeze unbaked nuggets for up to 3 months. Bake them from frozen at 200C for 20-25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
