Ingredients & Method

Corn Fritters

  • 410g can loose style corn
  • 1 courgette
  • Two stalks spring onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp mild curry powder (optional)
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • A few decent drops of your favourite hot sauce 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, and about half a teaspoon of butter for each batch.
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the corn and grated courgettes.
  2. Add ground coriander, curry powder, spring onion, sweet chilli sauce, eggs and coriander, and mix well.
  3. Add the flour and mix until combined.
  4. Heat a little butter and oil in a frying pan.
  5. Once pan is hot, add spoonfuls of mixture and cook the fritters in batches (3-4 at a time, depending on the size of your pan).
  6. Cook on a medium-high heat for a few minutes, until little bubbles appear on the top surface of the fritter.
  7. Turn the fritters and cook until golden. Place on paper towel to drain.

 

Avocado Salsa

  • 1/2 red onion
  • Juice of one lime
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • One ripe avocado
  • Approx. 50g sweet cherry tomatoes (handful)
  • 1 minced red chilli (optional)
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Finely dice the onion and place in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Pour the lemon and lime juice over the onion while you prepare the other ingredients – I find this takes some of the sting out of the onion.
  3. Chop the avocado into 1-2cm cubes, and quarter the cherry tomatoes.
  4. Add all the remaining ingredients to the onion and mix until well combined. Season to taste. Reserve while you cook the fritters.
