  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) lime zest
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
  • pinch salt

Instructions

Lime Sour Cream

  1. Stir together sour cream, lime zest, juice and salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Chicken Avocado and Corn Fritters

  1. Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium high heat and cook chicken, paprika, cumin, ginger and ¼ tsp salt, stirring often for about 8 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Scrape into a bowl to cool slightly.

  2. Add avocado and corn into the bowl with chicken. Stir in flour and baking powder to coat. Add eggs, dill and zest. Stir in breadcrumbs; let stand for 5 minutes to absorb.

  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in deep saucepan or deep fryer to 365°F (185°C). Scoop out batter in a dry ¼ cup (60 mL) measure and gently add to oil in batches for about 4 minutes turning gently halfway or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove with slotted spoon and serve with Lime Sour Cream.

If making them ahead, simply warm through in 350°F (175°C) oven for about 5 minutes to heat through.
