The chilli jam makes Callum Hann’s breakfast fritters just as good for lunch or dinner.
Recipe: Sweet corn fritters with smoked salmon and chilli jam
Sweet corn fritters with smoked salmon and chilli jam
4 corn cobs, kernels removed (or 200g frozen corn, defrosted)
2⁄3 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
¼ tsp chilli flakes
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
100g smoked salmon
2 limes, cut into
cheeks, to serve
2 tbsp olive oil
4 long red chillies, deseeded and cut in quarters
2 red shallots, cut in quarters
Thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled, roughly chopped
½ bunch coriander, reserve leaves to serve
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp light soy sauce
To make the chilli base, blend olive oil, chillies, shallots, ginger, and coriander roots and stems in a small food processor. Heat a wok on medium to high heat and add chilli base. Fry, stirring, for a couple of minutes or until fragrant. Add brown sugar and soy sauce. Stir until sugar dissolves. Cook over low heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden brown and softened.
Combine half the corn, flour, egg, chilli flakes and salt in a small food processor and blitz to combine. Stir in remaining corn.
Heat a non-stick pan over a high heat with the oil. Divide the batter into equal amounts and cook for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden brown and cooked through.
Spoon chilli jam onto corn fritters and serve immediately with salmon and fresh lime juice squeezed over. Garnish with the reserved coriander.
