Corn Fritters

Every Saturday at one of my favourite foodie’s markets in Sydney there is a group of young guys and girls creating an amazing fry-up of corn fritters with halloumi and mushrooms with a fresh tomato salsa. It is my favourite market breakfast. Here is my version with some fresh organic vegetables and our polenta. Tonight was a perfect BBQ night, so I made a batch of Corn Fritters to serve with a thick free-range grass-fed rump steak and salad that I picked up from the markets on the weekend. I knocked up some fresh Chilli and Kafir Lime Infused Oil and thought that the oil would be fantastic drizzled over the fritters. I was right. It was perfection.

  • 2  whole Corn, Sweetcorn Cob
  • 1  Medium Capsicum, Raw Red
  • 1  Medium Zucchini
  • 1/2  cup Onion, Red, Spanish
  • 2/3  cup Polenta, Wholegrain
  • 11/2  cup Water
  • 3  whole Egg
  • 2  tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8  tsp Salt, Fine Pink Himalayan
  • 1/8  tsp Peppercorn, Whole Black

How to prepare

  1. Cut the kernels off the cobs of corn by holding each vertically and running a sharp knife. coarsely grate the zucchini and dice the red capsicum and onion. Put the vegetables to the side in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Combine the polenta baking powder, salt, and pepper. In a saucepan, bring the water to the boil then add the polenta. Stir to mix in well then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes until the mixture thickens.

  3. Pour the polenta mixture over the corn and vegetables and stir in well while still hot. This will help to soften the vegetables. Allow to rest for 5 minutes to thicken and cool slightly.

  4. Add the three eggs and mix well.

  5. Use a 1/3 cup measure and scoop onto a medium hotplate or BBQ plate and cook well for about 4 minutes each side until golden. Ensure the heat is not too high, or the outside will burn before the vegetables are cooked. Try served hot with a fresh tomato salsa and a little chilli oil.
