  • 1 avocado
  • ½ lime, zested and juiced
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, white part only, finely sliced

For the fritters

  • 325g tin sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 spring onions, white part only, finely sliced
  • 60g halloumi, cut into 1cm dice
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  1. 1

    Halve and stone the avocado. Scoop out the flesh and roughly dice, then transfer to a bowl. Add the lime zest and juice, mix well, then add the tomatoes, chilli, spring onions and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Put half the sweetcorn, the egg, flour and baking powder in a food processor with a large pinch of salt. Whizz until smooth, then transfer to a bowl and fold in the remaining sweetcorn, spring onions, halloumi and coriander. Put a small pan of water on to boil.

  3. 3

    Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan. When hot, add spoonfuls of the mixture. Fry them in batches over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden. Meanwhile, poach the eggs to your liking in the boiling water.
