Corn Fritters and Fresh Tomato Salsa Recipe

It has been awhile since I wrote a recipe post. So I thought I’d write one today instead of continuing the Kuching Series posts. Today I will be sharing a recipe for Corn Fritters and Fresh Tomato Salsa. It is a simple recipe that  packs a punch!

Before we go on there is something I want to clarify. This recipe and other meatless recipes I’ve posted are definitely meatless but I cannot guarantee that it is vegan or vegetarian friendly. I usually include garlic, onion, eggs or milk in my cooking. To my knowledge these are acceptable to some vegetarians but not to others. So it is up to you to decide what you will need to omit and substitute .

My go to for a stage was plain Aglio E Olio.With time, I started experimenting with additional ingredients and found that shrimp went well with this dish.

Sometime ago on one fine Meatless Monday, I had a craving for Shrimp Aglio E Olio. So I brainstormed a replacement for shrimp and decided to try my luck with Woodear fungus. It has a similar sort of texture to shrimp so I thought it would be a good substitute!

On a roll with these recipes here. Today’s recipe is going to be sinful But, my aunty requested it so I can’t disappoint her. Instead of just sending it to her, I thought it would be great to share it with all of you as well.

So there are many variations of Butter Prawns. Not quite sure if is common in the West but it sure is a popular dish in Malaysia. Some prefer it wet, while some like it dry or coated in Nestum flakes. I learned this version from a family friend and it has never failed to please!
