Courgette And Corn Fritters Recipe

Quick, but so tasty!

This recipe is perfect for the summer weather as it’s nutritious but also very yummy to eat.

You only have to put aside less than half an hour to cook this, so that you can spend the rest of your day playing in the summer sun with your family.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 x 198g tins of sweetcorn, drained
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 100g courgette, grated, water squeezed out
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 30g Parmesan, grated
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 80ml milk
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

To serve:

  • Salsa
  • Mixed leaves

Instructions

  1. Crack two eggs into a large bowl and beat well. Add the sweetcorn, spring onions, courgette, cayenne, Parmesan, flour, milk and some salt and black pepper.

  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Working in batches to avoid crowding the pan, ladle in burger-sized portions of the batter and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until golden-brown on both sides; you should have enough to make eight fritters. Keep warm on a plate tented with foil.

  3. Fry or poach the remaining four eggs until cooked to your liking.

  4. Place two fritters on each serving plate and add a fried or poached egg, some salsa and a generous handful of mixed leaves.
