Fritters. Something that I thoroughly enjoy eating but have struggled to get 100% right. I’m either putting too much flour, or adding milk when I don’t have to or just the combination of flavours doesn’t work out.
Ages ago when I was super lazy but hungry for something healthy, I would just eat tinned tuna, corn kernels with salt and pepper. It served its purpose but was just not enough to make a meal and so stemmed the idea to incorporate this flavour combo into fritters.
This recipe has just four ingredients + any additional seasoning you want to add. I decided to serve this up with a quick yoghurt sauce I threw together. I will provide the recipe for the sauce I made as well.
Here it is if you want to have a go! Fritters are dairy free but can be made gluten free with a simple flour swap.
Tuna and Corn Fritters (yields 2 large or 4 small fritters)
what you’re going to need
1 x 75 g tinned tuna
1 x 75 g tin corn kernels
2 tablespoons plain flour (or gluten free alternative)
salt and pepper, to season
1 tablespoon olive oil for frying
Yoghurt Sauce (serves 2)
1/4 cup plain greek yoghurt (I use Jalna)
1/3 cup cucumber, grated and squeezed to remove as much liquid as possible
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
generous squeeze fresh lime
pinch of mixed herbs
sea salt, to season
- In a small bowl, add all ingredients for the yoghurt sauce and mix until well combined. Place in the fridge ready for serving
- In another bowl, add all the ingredients and mix until well combined.
- Heat up olive oil in a fry pan on a medium heat. Using a ladle or large spoon, place even amounts of batter into the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown.
- On a plate, place a large dollop of the yoghurt sauce then the fritters on top. Garnish with additional lime juice and parsley. Serve immediately.
