And for dinner.....

Corn and Zucchini Fritters with Salsa


50g butter
125ml milk
110g flour
2 eggs
210g creamed corn (as I didnt have creamed corn I used corn kernels and mixed up finely and added a little milk)
2 medium zucchini (240g)
vegetable oil for frying


3 medium egg or roma tomatoes chopped (i used normal tomatoes)
2 medium avocados (500g) chopped coursely
1 small red onion (100g), chopped coursely (i used half a normal one)
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander


Prepare salsa (mix all the ingredients together).

Peel and cut in rough chunks the zucchini and chop for a few seconds on speed 5.  Set aside.

Prepare 'creamed corn' if you dont have any..I added in a can of corn kernels (350-400g) minus the liquid and mixed it for 5-10 seconds on speed 5 (or until its chopped up finely and a little creamy).  Add a little milk and mix again on speed 5 for 5-10 seconds.  Set aside (I just added it to the same bowl as the zucchini).

Put butter in bowl and melt for 1 - 2 mins at 50°, speed 2 to melt the butter.  Add the milk, flour and egg and mix to combine until smooth (a few seconds on speed 4 to 5 or a few turbo bursts).

Add the prepared zucchini and corn and remix for a few seconds on speed 4 to combine.

Heat oil in a frying pan and shallow fry heaped tablespoons of the mixture until finished.

Serve on a plate with heaped tablespoons of the salsa mixture and some homemade lime yoghurt.

Lime Yoghurt

250g greek yoghurt
The zest and juice of one lime

Zest one lime into yoghurt and then add juice.  Mix to combine. 

You can do this in the thermomix but I find it easier for once to do it quickly with a zester and mix all in a small bowl.  Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Bon appetit!

  1. Thanks for this recipe. I have so many zucchinis from my garden and am needing ideas!

  2. We enjoyed it and I think the salsa and lime yoghurt made it a was converted from a WW book and had the exact same recipe in a french cookbook transated as 'ready fast'. My neighbour had so many zucchinis last summer that he freezes a whole lot already cut up ready for hot meals, soups etc..same with tomatoes he told me to freeze them whole and they defrost fine although they are still frozen and I havent tested that out though to see what their consistency is like once defrosted!
