1 cup bread crumbs
Extra oil for deep frying

Coriander seeds, toasted
1 tsp paprika
1 chilli sliced
¼ cup olive oil

For the brisket croquettes
1. In a large bowl, add the brisket, BBQ sauce and potato. Mix through and form into 5 cm balls slightly flattened between palms. Coat the balls in flour, followed by the whisked egg and a final coating of bread crumbs.
2. Using a deep large pot, heat oil on a medium to high heat. Deep-fry croquettes until golden and crispy. Remove from oil and place on paper towel to drain excess oil. Season croquettes while hot.
For the salad
1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
2. Drizzle half of the carrots with olive oil and roast for 30 minutes.
3. Using a peeler, ribbon the other half of carrots and serve raw for extra crisp and freshness to your salad.
4. To assemble, mix all elements in one bowl and dress with olive oil.
For the harissa
1. Chargrill the red peppers until the skin is black. Remove from the heat and place in a bowl. Cover with cling wrap and allow the peppers to steam for 5 minutes before peeling and deseeding.
2. Roughly chop up the red peppers and garlic, and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix through.
3. Season and serve with carrot salad and croquettes.
