Tuna & Sweetcorn Fritters

Serves 2 – 3

Low calorie and low carb. Made using the Nutrisnack Crepe Maker NS002

Ingredients

  • 1 courgette
  • 1 x 160g responsibly sourced tin of tuna, drained
  • 50g sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 egg
  • 1⁄4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1⁄2 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tbsp buckwheat flour
  • 1 tbsp chopped herbs such as parsley and chives
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Grate the courgette and squeeze out as much liquid as possible and place into a bowl. Add the drained tuna, sweetcorn, egg, chilli powder and baking powder and salt and pepper and mix well.
  2. Sprinkle over the flour and add the chopped herbs and mix to combine. The mixture should not be too runny. If it is a little on the wet side, add a touch more flour.
  3. Heat the griddle on high and add 4 spoonfuls of batter to the grill plate. Press down slightly and cook until the edges start to go crispy for approximately 5 minutes. Use a plastic spatula and flip them over carefully and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Serve crispy and hot. For an extra special treat add a poached egg on top.
