Method

  1. Mix the sweetcorn, spring onions, courgette, paprika, flour, beaten egg, milk and some seasoning in a large bowl and set aside.

  2. Put a large pan of water on to boil. In a bowl, mix the chilli sauce with the lime juice and set aside.

  3. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick pan and spoon in four burger-sized mounds of the fritter mixture, spaced apart (you may need to do this in two batches). When brown on the underside, turn over and cook for 3 mins more until golden.

  4. Meanwhile, poach the eggs in the simmering water for 2-3 mins until cooked and the yolks are runny. Remove with a slotted spoon. Serve the fritters topped with a poached egg, mixed leaves and a drizzle of the chilli dressing.

This was a real winner with my fussy family. Easy to make and very tasty. My daughters had their fritters with a poached egg on top and they loved it. I had mine with chicken and salad. Will definitely be cooking this again.

We really enjoyed this dish and have already made it for a second time, nice and light, fresh flavours and cheap. A great way of using courgettes, which I always struggle to be imaginative with!
