Tired? Hungry? Need food fast. These Courgette and Corn Fritters are my go to when I’ve not got much time and need to whip up a quick lunch or dinner. They're particularly suited to those work from home days when you’re in need of a satisfying lunch in between endless zoom calls. If in season, I do recommend using freshly shucked corn - it fries way better than canned corn and it’s like eating juicy, sweet gold nuggets! But canned, or frozen corn will work just as well. These fritters pair perfectly with avocado, gooey poached eggs, smoked salmon or bacon - tweak your topping to your personal taste.

Satisfyingly delicious, these fritters are also perfect for a weekend brunch!

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup self raising flour
  • 1 medium courgette
  • 1 cob of sweetcorn or 150g canned sweetcorn
  • 1 small brown onion
  • 50g fetta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

Coarsely grate the courgette, prepare the sweetcorn and finely dice the brown onion.
Whisk the eggs in a large bowl and then add the self raising flour - mix well.
Crumble the fetta into the bowl, along with the courgette, sweetcorn and brown onion, season with salt & pepper and then give it all a good thorough mix.
Heat the olive oil in a fry pan, set on a medium heat. (To check if your olive oil is at the optimum frying temperature, pop your spatula into the centre of the fry pan - if you see little bubbles forming around the spatula you’re good to go!)
Pour the mixture into the fry pan, evenly dividing into four fritters. Fry on each side for 4-6 minutes until golden brown.

      I had to look it up.

      It is a French word for zucchini. However, if it grows to full maturity, it is called marrow.

      I had never heard of this before.

    Courgette is the European term for Zucchini Squash. The variety grown there looks a little different a lighter green striped, unlike our dark green and darker green striped varieties. It tastes about the same. You could use Golden Zucchini too. The flavor is similar. Or try out other summer squashes.

    My question is, can these be oven baked, or Air Fried? I’m not supposed to have pan or deep fried foods.

      I avoid fried foods and will probably try a small amount cooked by an alternate method.
