Instructions

Chilli-Corn Fritters

  1. Place all the ingredients except the salsa, sour cream and vegetable oil in the bowl of a food processor and process until blended but still slightly lumpy…don’t over-process. Let stand for one hour at room temperature.
  2. On an oiled griddle or skillet, spoon 1/4 cup of the mixture to form a small cake. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
  3. Cook on medium-high heat until browned on both sides.
  4. Serve warm with salsa and sour cream as a side dish for the tacos.
  5. Should make 12, small to medium sized fritters.

Prawn Tacos

  1. Heat oil to medium-hot, add capsicum and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the prawns and chillies, and cook until the prawns turn bright orange. Do not overcook.
  2. Spoon the mixture onto tortillas that have been warmed and slightly blackened on the grill. Add salsa or chilli sauce of your choice and fold or roll the tacos.

Guacamole

  1. Cut the avos in half, remove the pips, spoon out the avocado and mash in a bowl with a fork.
  2. Add a few squirts of lemon or lime juice and salt/pepper to taste. The BBCC GREEN JALAPENO CHILLI SAUCE can be added too, to make the perfect Guac. Mix thoroughly and serve alongside the tacos and fritters.
