Smoked Salmon Fritters with Mustard & Dill Mayo

Appetizers are the best way to start a dinner party and these smoked salmon fritters with mustard & dill mayo will never fail to impress your guests. Smoked salmon is usually served on a bagel with cream cheese for brunch but by incorporating them into a corn batter and frying them, they're perfect finger food that everyone will enjoy. Also, if you don't like smoked salmon you can use cooked shrimp instead.

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
4 oz. smoked salmon, cut into small pieces
1 cup mayonnaise
1 heaped tbsp. wholegrain mustard
few sprigs of dill, chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced
Olive oil, for frying

Fill a pan halfway with olive oil and heat the oil until it reaches 350°F

In a bowl mix the flour, cornmeal, and baking powder together then add the egg, milk, and melted butter and stir until well incorporated

Fold the smoked salmon into the corn mixture and drop the fritter mixture, tablespoon at a time, into the hot oil and fry for a few minutes until golden brown

Mix together the mayonnaise, wholegrain mustard, chopped dill, lemon juice, a pinch of salt, and pepper until combined

Drain the fritters on a few sheets of paper towel to remove the excessive oil

Serve the fritters on a bed of arugula with the mustard & dill mayo
