You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw these fritters on donnahay.com.au. Corn and prawn, together in a Fritter! I'm giving shellfish a bit of a wide berth lately (allergies), so was slightly wary about putting prawns in these fritters. I actually made 2 batches, one with more prawn, and one with less, for me. The minimal prawn fritters tasted sensational, so I can only guess that the maxi-prawn ones were out of this world (if you like prawns and aren't allergic).
So if I haven't already convinced you with the plethora of fritter favourites, give these ones a go - they are perfect for a weekend lunch or a light dinner.
Keeping the text short and sweet today, because there's a pictorial anecdote at the end of this post that someone may be hanging out for.
Prawn and corn fritters
½ cup plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
½ tsp baking powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or rice bran oil
¼ cup milk
sea salt and black pepper
¾ cup (150g) fresh or canned corn kernels
2 green onions (scallions), chopped
150g green (raw) prawns, peeled and chopped
¼ teaspoon chilli flakes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, extra, for frying
lemon wedges, sliced tomato, avocado and olive oil, to serve
1. Place flour, baking powder, egg, oil, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine.
2. Add the corn, green onion, prawns and chilli and stir to combine.
3. Heat the extra oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook ¼ cupfuls of the mixture, in batches, for 2–3 minutes each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels.
4. Serve with lemon wedges and a side of tomato and avocado drizzled with olive oil

Ingredients, including prawns, corn, spring onion and egg for the fritters.
Cutting the raw prawn.
This is a really simple batter (and a very easy recipe) with flour, baking powder, milk, egg and oil and lots of salt and pepper.
The prawn in these fritters really lift them to another level, and add a touch of luxury to a quickly prepared meal.
Some sweet chilli sauce would not go astray on top of these fritters, either.
