Place sweet potato and salt into a saucepan and cover with water. Put on the stovetop and bring to the boil for 15-20 minutes. Once soft, remove and drain the water. Mash sweet potato and add all other ingredients. Mix well and shape handfuls into a golfball size. Roll in arrowroot powder and flatten slightly.
These can be made ahead and kept in a sealed container in the fridge for a couple of days until cooking time. Once cooked, they can also be frozen.
When you are ready to cook, place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in fry pan and turn onto medium heat. Cook on on each side until browned.
As as a variation, you could use smoked fish instead of tinned wild salmon.

Using tinned wild salmon with the bones in gives you a massive calcium boost. Calcium is important for both skin and overall health and can be harder to get when you do not consume dairy. It is essential in the production and activity of hormones involved in digestion.
Coconut aminos are is a sauce made from coconut sap – it is dark, rich, salty and slightly sweet – very similar to soy sauce. It can be found in most supermarkets in the health food or gluten free isle.
