Recipe - Sweetcorn Fritters with Avocado Salsa
Mapledurham Food Festival back at the end of April was a real celebration of food. Renowned chef Stephanie Moon, who you may have seen on Great British Menu, cooked up a storm in one of the theatre tents.
Here's her delicious and very summery recipe for sweetcorn fritters with avocado salsa.
Basically a pancake batter so mix your favourite recipe - 100g plain flour and 2 large eggs is a good amount to feed about four - and then enough milk to make it quite stiff. Season. Set aside.
Slice cobs off two sweetcorn and add with about 2 or 3 chopped spring onions. Add to batter mix. Whisk one egg white and fold in to batter mix.
Drop spoonfuls into a very hot pan and cook until very brown both sides.
Chop an avocado roughly, add some finely chopped shallot and chilli. Squeeze a lime into it and add a little olive oil. Fresh mint is a good herb to finish.
Serve fritters dotted with the avocado salsa as a starter or a main with a large salad.
