To make the fritters, combine half the corn with the eggs and flour in the jug of a stick blender and whizz until creamy and combined. In a bowl add the remaining corn, onion and the chopped coriander and mix well with the creamed egg mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a medium frying pan. Cook heaped tablespoons of the batter, one at a time, until browned both sides and cooked through, about 3 – 5 minutes per side. Drain on absorbent paper. Keep cooked fritters warm in a warmer or oven at a low temperature until serving time.

To make the salsa, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mash lightly with a fork to combine.

Serve fritters topped the avocado salsa and drizzled with sweet chilli sauce. Garnish with fresh coriander.
