I tried to attempt a healthier variation of the deep fried the prawn ball recipe in the form of a fritter. It works pretty well I feel.

Chef's note

These could of course be shallow fried or even deep fried, this was just a healthy experiment. They come out quite nice, though not as golden as they would if they were fried.


Made this again recently and added lots of chopped parsley and a tablespoon or so of masa harina to bind the mixture and add a slightly different flavour.
