Sea Veg Croquettes, Tartar, Sweet Chilli with Wilted Spinach

Sea Veg Croquettes, Tartar, Sweet Chilli with Wilted Spinach
There are two croquettes served in a gray plate with the tartar and sweet chilli spread accross. There is also the wilted spinach on the side of the croquettes.

This has quickly become a favourite with me.  Not only is it a wonderful mix of spicy and sweet, it’s really satisfying to plate up too.

The tartar is the star of the show here.

I’ve used wilted spinach, but you can use any of your favourite greens here, including some of the spicier varieties, such as rocket (arugula).

One big tip here is to make sure you don’t overly grind the croquettes in the food processor; we want plenty of texture to them, to give a really nice mouthfeel.

  • 1/8 tsp lemon zest

Croquettes - section 2

  • 1/2 cup Brazil nuts soaked overnight
  • 1 tbsp chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika


  • 1 cup cashews soaked 30 minutes
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dill pickles finely diced
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 1/2 shallot small
  • 1 tbsp parsley finely chopped
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Sweet chilli

  • 2 red bell pepper de-seeded and roughly chopped
  • 2 red chillies de-seeded (I like Scotch Bonnet for this)
  • 1/2 mango de-stoned and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt

To serve

  • 2 cup spinach per person
  • 1/8 tsp salt



  • Pulse all ingredients from first section in a food processor until thoroughly combined, leaving some texture.
  • Form into croquettes using a 1/4 cup measure.
  • Grind ingredients from second section in a food processor to crumbs and transfer to a bowl.
  • Individually coat the croquettes in the crumbs and dehydrate for 5 to 6 hours at 105 degrees F.


  • Blend the cashews, water and apple cider vinegar until smooth
  • Stir in remaining ingredients by hand.
  • Chill to firm up before serving.

Sweet chilli

  • Blend all the ingredients up until smooth.
  • Chill until ready to use. Will keep for up to 4 days in a sealed container in the fridge.

To serve

  • Massage salt into spinach until they wilt a little, as you can see in the picture. If you’re using green such as rocket, then instead of wilting them, just toss them in a little olive oil and lemon juice.
  • Serve with the croquettes, tartar and sweet chilli.
