Tuna Fritters


  • 125ml milk or plant/nut based alternative
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 150g self-raising flour or gluten free flour
  • 300g frozen sweetcorn, defrosted (or use cooked fresh corn)
  • ½ bunch of spring onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, zested and cut into wedges
  • 2 x 112g cans tuna, drained and roughly flaked
  • sunflower or vegetable oil, for frying

To serve

  • 100g soured cream
  • hot sauce, chilli flakes or Cajun Spice to serve (optional)

STEP 1 Mix the milk and eggs together in a jug with ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp ground black pepper. Sift the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the egg mixture in a thin, steady stream, whisking well until combined. Stir in the sweetcorn, spring onions, lemon zest and tuna.

STEP 2 Heat a drop of oil in a non-stick or cast iron frying pan over a medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and cook until crisp and golden, about 2-3 mins, flip and repeat on the other side (you’ll need to do this in batches). Keep warm in a low oven and repeat with the remaining batter.

STEP 3 Serve the hot fritters with the lemon wedges for squeezing over, the soured cream and hot sauce if using.
