These golden sweetcorn fritters are a real crowd-pleaser and are the recipe most often requested by Marc! The crispy batter, juicy sweetcorn and hit of chilli is a match made in heaven.
They're also really easy to make and work well for canapes, starters or even breakfasts.

Ingredients (Serves four for starters):
125g self-raising flour
340g tin of sweetcorn, well drained
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1 red chilli finely chopped (more or less, to your taste)
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to season
Vegetable oil to fry
Sift the flour into a bowl.
Make a well and add the egg.
Gradually beat together, adding the milk a little at a time, until you have a lovely smooth batter.
Add the sweetcorn, spring onions and chilli and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Drop in spoonfuls of the batter and press down gently to form fritters.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy.
Serve with a simple salsa, or chilli sauce to dip.
