  1. Step 1

    Combine mashed potato, tuna, spring onion and garlic in a bowl. Shape 2 tbs of the mixture into an oval shape and place on a plate. Repeat with remaining mixture to make 12 croquettes.
  2. Step 2

    Combine breadcrumbs and sesame seeds in a shallow bowl. Whisk the egg in a separate shallow bowl. Dip 1 croquette into the egg, then toss in breadcrumb mixture to coat. Repeat with the remaining croquettes.
  3. Step 3

    Pour enough oil into a large deep frying pan to reach 1cm up the side. Heat over medium-high heat. Add the croquettes and cook, turning, for 6-8 mins or until golden and crisp. Transfer to a clean plate lined with paper towel.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, prepare the salad kit in a large bowl following packet directions. Add the chilli, if using, and toss to combine.
  5. Step 5

    Divide the croquettes and salad mixture among serving plates. Serve with the mayonnaise.
