    Prawn, pea and rice fritters with an Asian-style salad

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    250g pouch Waitrose microwaveable wholegrain rice
    100g essential Waitrose frozen peas, defrosted
    150g pack essential Waitrose raw prawns, cut into pea-sized pieces
    3 essential Waitrose salad onions, sliced into rounds
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    2 tbsp chopped coriander or flat leaf parsley
    2 eggs, beaten
    50g plain flour
    2 tbsp vegetable oil
    4 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche, to serve

    2 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar
    2 tsp caster sugar
    ½ essential Waitrose cucumber, thinly sliced
    6 essential Waitrose radishes, thinly sliced
    1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
    handful mint leaves


    1. First, make the salad. Mix the vinegar and sugar in a bowl and toss through the remaining ingredients. Set aside.

    2. Mix all the fritter ingredients, bar the oil and crème fraîche, in a large bowl and season with salt. Heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Spoon in 2 tbsp batter per fritter (you may need to fry them in batches). Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip over and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the rest in the remaining oil. Serve with the salad and a dollop of crème fraîche, plus lime wedges if liked.
