You guys, this is so easy AND super impressive! I made it to impress the MIL, and it did, so if you have someone to impress, cook these up!

Corn and Cabbage Fritters
Ingredients

  • 4 Spring Onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tin of corn kernels, drained. Or use fresh!
  • Approx 1 cup of red cabbage, chopped into pieces the same size as the corn kernels. I cut a thin slice from the cabbage then chopped that into smaller pieces.
  • 1 egg
  • half a cup of self raising flour, or use plain flour with a pinch of bicarb and half a teaspoon of baking powder.
  • Salt and Pepper
  • A splash of milk if needed.
  • Olive oil, to cook.
Method
  • In a large bowl, combine the spring onions, corn kernels and cabbage.
  • sprinkle over the flour, salt and pepper and stir well so that all the vegetables are coated evenly. This will save lumps in your fritters. No one wants a surprise lump of uncooked flour in their fritter.
  • Mix in the egg to form a dryish batter. If it’s too dry, add a splash of milk, but not too much.
  • Did you add too much milk? Sprinkle in some more flour, no biggy.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a non stick pan, and place large spoonfuls of fritter batter into the pan. I could fit 3 in my pan, with a little room around each one. 
  • Leave to set on the bottom but don’t let them burn. This will take a few minuets. When they are ready, turn and cook the other side.
  • Drain on paper towels if you like, but they wont be that oily. 
Spicy Tomato Salad
Ingredients
  • About 2 cups of chopped, fresh tomatoes. I used quartered cherry tomatoes because they are going off in the garden, but use what ever you like, just chop it into small pieces.
  • A big handful of parsley, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • a small glug of olive oil
  • a small glug of red wine vinegar
  • a big pinch of salt
  • a small pinch of sugar. 
Method
  • Mix everything into a bowl, and let sit for at least an hour to allow the flavours to marry.
  • That’s it. 
To Plate. (fancy!)
  • Place a few fritters in a small stack.
  • Place a big blob of sour cream on the top.
  • ladle a big spoon of tomato salad on top of the sour cream.
  • If you are not allergic to chilies (like my MIL) place a spoon of chili jam on the top.
  • If you are feeling decadent, add some slices of perfect avocado. I wasn’t feeling decadent.

    Yum, I'll be putting this on my "to cook list". If it past the inlaw test it must be very good.
