Corn Fritters with Avocado Salsa

Recipe supplied by chef Dan Churchill

Ready In: 20 mins
Serves: 1

Ingredients

1
cob of corn, kernels removed
2
eggs
1/2 handful
chives, sliced (optional)
1
pinch of salt
1 cup
oat flour or almond meal
2/3 cup
almond or regular milk
2 tbsp
olive oil
 
For the salsa:
1
red onion, finely chopped
1 cup
cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 handful
coriander leaves, roughly chopped
1
cucumber, roughly chopped
+
juice of half a lemon
2 tbsp
pumpkin seeds (optional)
1/2
long red chili or jalapeno, seeds removed, finely chopped (optional)
1
avocado, diced

Method

1. In a bowl combine the almond meal or oat flour, chives (if using), eggs, salt, pepper, milk and corn.

2. Heat a frypan to high heat and add the oil. Use a spoon to shape the corn mix into a patty and plop onto the pan. Cook on each side for 2 minutes or until

golden brown and cooked through.

3. Remove and set aside to a plate until all fritters are cooked.

4. In a separate bowl combine onion, tomato, cucumber, coriander leaves, avocado and chili. Just before serving squeeze over some lemon juice and mix through. You can also make this as a pickled situation ahead of time and mix everything together but the avocado, set it in the fridge and let it pickle overnight!

5. To serve stack three fritters on top of each other, sandwiching the avocado salsa in between and finish with a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds, if using. Alternatively you can serve them individually and top a spoonful of the salsa on each.
