Crispy Chick Pea and Mackeral Croquettes

This is another in the series of 'Simple Supper' recipes even though I actually ate it for lunch.

The name of this post is quite a mouthful but the croquettes themselves are small, flavoursome and beautiful. I made them, gulp, because now is the time to reduce the tummy fat and these are low gi food. They are tasty though. So you won't feel hard done by for eating healthily.

So, Simply take:

1 tin of chickpeas
1 small tin of mackerel fillets.
1 tbsp capers
1 small egg. If your egg is large, then don't use it all as the croquettes will be too soft
Oil for frying.
A salad to serve.

All I did:

Put the drained chick peas in the bowl of the food processor with the entire contents of the tin of mackerel fillets. No need to drain the oil. Pulse until semi smooth.
Add the capers and the egg and pulse again, This will  break up the capers and mix in the egg.
Turn out into a bowl and refrigerate for about 30 mins.
Fry large spoonsful until crisp on both sides and cooked through.
Serve with a dresses salad.
