Fritters In A Flash
Sometimes you just need something yummy now.
No time to run out for special fresh ingredients, or long involved processes- just something whipped up out of the pantry guarenteed to be good.
I'm not much of a fan of pre-packaged stuff, but it always pays to have some basics and bits and pieces available to build on. A rat around in the cupbard revealed some corn kernels and a tin of crab. Hmmm.... Fritters!
OK corn, crab, egg, gfree crumbs, lemons-always in the fridge, and an extra treat of some yummy mayonaise from Heidi at Apples Under My Bed. What more could you ask for?
Of course these would be better with perfect fresh ingredients. Crab lump meat, roasted ears of corn, I might fancy these up next dinner party, but lunch for me and littlej these are juuuuust right.
First rat around in the pantry and gather your ingredients
Small tin of 170g or approx 1/2 a cup of drained crab meat
1/2 cup of tinned corn kernels
1/2 cup gfree rice crumbs
1 egg lightly beaten
zest of about 1/2 small lemon
Pop everything together into a bowl and mix gently.
Form into nice little fritters and shallow fry gently until they're golden brown and hot all the way through.
Serve them with some salad and some more mayonaise for dipping.
Easy Peasy and maybe 10mins from start to finish. School holiday lunch with style!
So Readers Dear, are you a fan of pre-packaged goods or do you prefer to cook from scratch?
