Sweet Potato Fritters with Avocado Salsa

Salt and pepper
Olive oil for pan

1 avocado, skin and seed removed, mashed
5 cherry tomatoes, chopped finely
1 lemon, juiced
2 crushed garlic cloves

In a large bowl mix together the sweet potato, shallots, eggs, flour, salt and pepper.

Heat a large frying pan to a medium temperature and add a little olive oil. Drop large spoonfuls of the sweet potato mixture and cook until golden brown on each side. Remove and drain on absorbent paper.
