Corn Fritters With Smoky Avocado Creme and Salsa
Updated: Jun 27, 2020
Can you believe it, I finally posted a savoury recipe! Not going to lie this recipe is very much thanks to my boyfriend Simon who has been working hard on upping his fritter game while I was in Sydney. They are totally delicious and so he was nice enough to share his skills with me so I could bring you all this recipe. This recipe serves between 1-2 people depending on how hungry you are, so feel free to double it if you're cooking for two!
130g cherry tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
7g fresh red hot chili pepper
2tsp lemon juice
2tsp olive oil
a pinch of salt and pepper
1tbsp loosely packed chopped fresh coriander
Finely chop all of your ingredients and combine in a bowl with the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well and leave to set for at least 20 minutes to let the flavours get to know each other.
Smoky Avocado Creme
1 avocado ( approximately 130g avocado flesh)
¼ tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp kosher salt
1 tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp garlic
Add all your ingredients to a small blender or mini food processor and blend until completely smooth.
2 cloves of garlic minced
150g frozen corn
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp dried coriander
¼ tsp kosher salt (+ extra to sprinkle on the zucchini)
45g unsweetened soy milk
Olive oil (for frying)
Grate the zucchini and sprinkle with some salt. Leave for 5 minutes. Squeeze out the water and add it to a bowl with garlic, shallots, corn and spices. Mix well.
Add your flour and milk directly to the ingredients and stir until everything is combined. Rest for 10 minutes. Heat up a skillet with about ½-1 tbsp olive oil. Use a heaped tablespoon of batter per fritter. Flatten into your desired shape on the pan and cook on medium heat until the fritter is golden brown and cooked all the way through. Rest on a wire rack until you have cooked all of your fritters. Serve with some greens, your avocado creme, salsa and some sriracha mayo and fresh coriander if you wish.
