Corn and Prawn Fritters with Cucumber Remoulade

  • For the Cucumber Remoulade
  • 1 cup finely grated cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped capers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill pickle (or dill pickle relish)
  • For the Fritters
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup semi-skimmed milk
  • 1-1/2 cup cooked baby prawns, thawed and drained
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

For the Cucumber Remoulade

For remoulade, stir cucumber, sugar and salt and let sit in a strainer over a bowl for 30 minutes.

Squeeze out excess liquid, stir in yogurt, capers and dill pickle and chill until ready to serve.

For the Fritters

For fritters, heat oil in a small sauté pan over medium heat and add onion.

Sauté; onion for 5 minutes until translucent, then add corn and thyme and sauté until corn is tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat to cool.

Stir together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk egg and milk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir just until blended. Fold in cooled corn mixture, then stir in shrimp.

Heat enough oil to come up 2-inches in a heavy-bottomed deep pot to 190°C.

Drop fritter batter by tablespoonfuls gently into oil and fry until deep golden brown, turning once (about 6 minutes). Remove to paper towel to drain and serve warm with remoulade.
