  1. Cut sweet potatoes in small blocks, steam for 20 minutes. Drain. Place in bowl.
  2. Once very dry, mash with potato masher to break up chunks. Add flour and finely chopped green onions until smooth batter. *Mixing with hands here is the best way to ensure the right texture.
  3. In large skillet, warm 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and two tablespoons butter over medium heat. Form small cakes, about 2 tablespoons batter each. Place potato cakes in skillet, 4-5 at a time, cook on each side about 3 minutes until golden brown. Continue frying as needed, adding more butter and oil each time.
  4. Let cool and add Cocina Fresca Sweet Onion salsa to top. Serve.
