Wash produce before use
Prep the fritter ingredients
- Rinse the black-eyed peas.
- Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
- Peel and finely chop the shallots.
- Set aside half the sesame seeds for the fritter mixture; spread the remaining sesame seeds on a plate.
Make the fritter patties (see Chef’s Tip)
In a large bowl, add the black-eyed peas and season generously with salt and pepper. Using a fork, masher, or the bottom of a bowl, mash the peas to a coarse paste. Add the garlic, shallots, oats, cumin, and half the sesame seeds and mash roughly to combine. Using wet hands, form the mixture into six [twelve] ½-inch-thick patties. Gently press both sides of the patties into the remaining sesame seeds to lightly coat.
Cook the fritters
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm the coconut oil and 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the fritters and cook, carefully turning once, until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add more olive oil between batches if needed. While the fritters are cooking, prepare the arugula.
Dress the arugula
- Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Save the remaining lemon.]
In a large bowl, toss together the arugula, 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the arugula to individual plates and top with the fritters. Serve the spicy chile-mango blend and lemon wedges on the side.
- Rinse the black-eyed peas.
