    What to do

  • 1. In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Stir in milk then whisk in the flour and baking powder until smooth.

  • 2. Add capsicum, onion, parsley, corn kernels and Cajun spice to the bowl and mix until the vegetables are evenly dispersed in the mixture. Leave mixture to rest.

  • 3. In the meantime, make the salsa dip by combining the tomato, onion, parsley and lemon juice in a bowl. Set aside while you cook your fritters.

  • 4. Heat enough oil in a large non-stick frying pan to thinly cover the surface over medium to high heat.

  • 5. Add a large spoonful of batter to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through. Repeat until all the mixture is cooked. You may need to add the remaining olive oil between batches.

  • 6. When the corn fritters are cooked serve topped with tomato salsa.
