One piece of internet speak (or is it lolcatz speak? Or Cookie Monster speak…?) that has made it into my real life vocabulary is “Om Nom Nom”. I say it when I see something yummy I want to eat or if Suspence is chowing down on a banana, I’m not necessarily proud of this, but it’s how it is. It’s a fact.
Another fact, is that these fritters I made last night are the business & assuredly om nom nom.
Zucchini & corn fritters with tomato & avocado salsa:
1 cup corn kernels (I just used a 310g tin)
1 medium zucchini, ends cut off, grated & squeezed to remove excess moisture.
1/4 of a red capsicum, finely chopped
5-6 shallots, chopped
2 tbs parsley, chopped
1 tsp smoked paprika
salt & pepper to taste
1 cup of flour
1/2 tsp bicarb soda (can use self-raising flour in place of plain with bi-carb)
2/3 cup of water
Oil for frying
“Salsa”; Tomato & avocado chopped, drizzle with lemon juice.
Mix flour, salt & pepper, paprika & bicarb in a large bowl, add water & mix well. Add more water if required to create a nice smooth batter.
Add vegetables & parsley & combine.
Heat enough vegetable oil in a pan to fry; coat the bottom of the pan.
Fry in batches, using a heaped tablespoon of mixture for each fritter, then drain on kitchen towel.
Top with salsa & serve!
Om. Nom. Nom.
