Sweetcorn Fritters with Tomato Relish

Healthy, easy weekday dinner

You’d think that blogging about food all day, I’d have dinner sorted every night – no worries, hassle-free, Ta Da… But no, I struggle to find inspiration most days just like anyone else. The girls come home from school and ask ‘what’s for dinner?’ and I have no idea, not a thought, an idea or glimmer of culinary creativity. Nada. Sometimes it’s a chore to even open the fridge isn’t it?

And once you’ve got the fridge door open you stand there staring mindlessly into the cold fridgy shelves hoping beyond hope that something will burst out and cook itself. Oh, wouldn’t that be nice? But let’s face it, the odds of that happening are pretty slim and so I’ve learned to have a few little dishes up my sleeve that don’t have a complicated ingredients list and take next to no effort but always taste great. One is my Spanish Eggs (looooove Spanish eggs) and another is my corn fritters with tomato relish. Who doesn’t love a good corn fritter?


I use fresh corn kernels when I can, but keep a few cans of kernels in the pantry for those emergency nights when I need something quick and tasty and only a fabulous fritter or two will do. I serve these golden babies with a fresh tomato relish that adds a little tang. Oh, and a big salad on the side. Honestly, from start to finish it takes about 20 minutes and that includes any chopping that needs to be done. Fantastic! Now, if we could only get someone else to make them…..

Do you have a couple of standby recipes that you pull out when your inspiration tank is empty? Do share, I think we could all do with a little help now and then.
