Prawn and Sweetcorn Fritters

Made these tonight using the first English Sweetcorn cobs.

100g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
a pinch of smoked paprika
2 eggs
350g fresh sweetcorn kernals stripped from the cob
140g frozen prawns defrosted
6 spring onions finely chopped
1 red chilli, seeds removed, finely chopped
salt and pepper

If using fresh sweetcorn boil in salted water for 4-5 minutes then drain well. If using tinned then simply drain. Coarsely chop the prawns so that the pieces are roughly the same size as the sweetcorn kernals. Combine the chopped prawns, spring onion and chilli in a bowl. To another bowl add the flour, paprika and baking powder and seasoning. Beat the milk and eggs together, add to the flour mix whilst continuing to beat to make a thick batter which is then mixed with the solid ingredients. Fry spoonfulls of the mix in a shallow pan turning them over when they start to brown.
