Cassava/yucca plays a huge part in Caribbean cuisine especially in South America and it is my favourite ground provision. It is also one of those starches that works well for both sweet and savoury preparations. There is nothing quite like a warm thick slice of sweet cassava pone spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Some people add freshly ground black pepper for a kick... okay, I am getting distracted here. Back to these patties.

This is a mash-up of boiled, mashed cassava and frizzled salt fish seasoned with sautéed aromatics - onions, garlic, fresh herbs and hot peppers. The full recipe including cooking notes are here. These patties work as a snack or brunch-type food. Be sure to serve it with some hot pepper sauce, hot sauce or sour.
