Preparation Time15 minutes
Cook Time15 minutes
Serves4

Ingredients

  • 2 corn cobs, husks and silks removed
  • 100 gm halloumi cheese, diced
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup mint leaves finely chopped, plus extra for serving
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup plain flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 chorizo sausages, finely diced
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Sour cream to serve

Method

  • Remove the corn kernels from the cobs, cutting as close to the cob as you can. Place the corn in a large bowl, along with the halloumi, parmesan, mint, eggs, flour, salt and freshly ground black pepper; mix well to combine. Heat a teppanyaki plate over medium-high heat and add a little oil, then working in batches, spoon large dollops of the mixture onto the plate and cook for 2 minutes each side until golden and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium frypan over medium-high heat, add a tablespoon of oil and the chorizo and fry until the edges of the chorizo are crisp and it has released its oil, add the chilli and cook for 1 minute until fragrant, remove from heat. Serve the fritters with a dollop of sour cream, extra mint leaves and some chorizo and chilli over the top.
