Asian Style Sweetcorn Fritters
Asian Style Sweetcorn Fritters, made with just a few pantry staples and some fresh herbs. So delicious and utterly moreish.

Served with a mouth-watering dipping sauce mixture of soy sauce, a drop or two of fish sauce, fresh lime juice, sambal oelek, fresh ginger, coriander & mint, and a bit of honey. The sauce is made to taste, so no measurements here. Convenient sweet chilli sauce, hot honey, sriracha mayo are also great dipping sauce options.
