Sweetcorn Fritters

 

Sweetcorn_frittersThese featured in Waitrose Kitchen (March 2014), and are served with avocado and tomato salsa. They taste really good and are easy to make. Serves 2:

For the salsa:

  • 1 avocado (roughly chopped)
  • 125g cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 red chilli (deseeded and finely chopped)
  • A handful of fresh coriander (chopped)
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle paste (be careful strength varies!), or Tabasco

Mix together all the above ingredients and set aside in a serving bowl.

For the fritters:

  • 330g can of sweetcorn (drained)
  • 3 spring onions (thinly sliced)
  • 75g self-raising flour (sieved)
  • 1 large egg
  • 65ml milk
  • 2 tbsp oil

Heat the oil (to a medium heat) in two large frying pans (this enables you to make all 8 fritters at once). Beat together the flour, egg and milk. Mix in the sweetcorn and spring onions. Spoon the 1/8th of the mixture onto the frying pan (and repeat until all the mixture has been used).

Cook the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve warm with the salsa.
