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

Wash produce before use


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. 


Make the fritter batter

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Pat the seafood dry with a paper towel (discarding the barramundi skin); if using scallops, rinse and drain, then pat dry. Cut the seafood into ¼-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper. 

In a medium bowl, stir together the chickpea batter blend and Spanish seasoning blend; season generously with salt and pepper. Add 3 tablespoons [6 TBL] 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 batter forms. 


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 are cooking, prepare the tomato-cucumber salad.


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 for another use.]

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. 


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