Spicy Courgette & Sweetcorn Fritter with Jalapeno Chilli Jam

Looking for a delicious light dinner with a bit of spice?  Our spicy courgette & sweetcorn fritters are the one!  Simply combine all the ingredients together and fry into fritters.  Make sure to include the lime zest sprinkled on top at the end- this finishes off the dish perfectly- I couldn't stop eating these in our test kitchen!

100g courgette, grated
1 small can sweetcorn, approximately 200g, drained
1 spring onion, finely sliced
15g coriander, finely chopped 
60g plain flour
1 jar Jalapeno Jam
1 lime
1 large free range egg, lightly whisked
2 tbsp milk
Sea salt and cracked black pepper
Oil, for frying
1 pot soured cream


  1. Place the grated courgette in some strong kitchen roll or clean cloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible before placing in a large bowl.
  2. Add the sweetcorn, spring onion and coriander before stirring to combine. Sprinkle in the flour and stir again.
  3. Spoon in 1 tablespoon of the Jalapeno Jam and finely grate in a little lime zest. Add the egg and pour in the milk before whisking everything together to form a thick batter. Season well with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large, flat pan over a medium/high heat. Carefully spoon in a tablespoon of batter at a time for form little fritters and fry for 2 - 3 minutes on each side - lower the heat if your oil becomes too hot and the fritters are browning too quickly.
  5. Once golden on both sides, remove the fritters from the pan and place on a plate lined with a little kitchen roll whilst you cook the remaining batter. The batter should make 12 fritters.
  6. When ready to serve, stack 3 fritters on a plate. Spoon over a generous helping of soured cream before topping with a good spoon of Single Variety Jalapeño Jam. Finish the dish with a little more lime zest and enjoy!
