TO MAKE THE FRITTERS:

  2. Heat a fry pan to medium heat. Cover the base of the fry pan with a thin layer of olive oil. Gently place tablespoons of the mixture into pan and cook for 4 minutes or until golden and the fritter is holding together.
  3. Gently flip each fritter and cook for another 3 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  4. Place the fritters on a plate lined with kitchen paper and continue frying until no batter remains. Set aside.
