Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Marinate the onion

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
In a medium bowl, combine the onion and sherry vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Make the fritter batter

Prep and cook instructions are identical for all seafood options.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Pat the seafood dry with a paper towel; cut the seafood into ¼-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, add the chickpea batter blend and season with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water and stir until incorporated. Gently stir in the scallions and seafood, adding more water 1 teaspoon at a time as needed until a thick, moldable batter forms.

3

Cook the fritters

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, spoon in enough batter to form 3-inch fritters and cook, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt and pepper. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the fritters cook, prepare the tomato-cucumber salad.

4

Make the salad; prep the garnish

  • Cut away the core from the tomato; coarsely chop the tomato.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise into enough thin half-moons to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
  • Coarsely chop the olives, checking for any pits.
  • Cut the lemon into wedges for garnish. [Cut 1 lemon into wedges; save the remaining lemon.]
To the bowl with the onion, stir in the tomato, cucumber, olives, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the sole fritters and tomato-cucumber salad to individual plates. Serve with the lemon wedges.
