Recipe - Corn fritters with avocado salsa

While we were in NZ we had a lovely breakfast one morning with corn fritters and an avocado salsa.  We decided we'd make them ourselves when we got home.  I browsed around for a recipe and came up with an amalgamation of a few I found.  We tried them this morning.   Suggestions or improvements welcome!

125g tin creamed corn
125g tin corn kernels
1 ¼ cups plain flour
½ cup milk
2 eggs
1-2 spring onions, sliced finely
Salt and pepper
1 tsp baking powder
(can also add some chopped ham, bacon, grated cheese, grated zucchini)

1.       Whisk milk and eggs together
2.       Add other ingredients and stir well
3.       Heat frying pan, spray with oil
4.       Drop spoonfuls of batter into pan and cook

Mix together the following :
1 avocado, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 red capsicum, finely chopped
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander leaves
1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce (or a dash of Tabasco)

We made these again last week but had no sweet chilli or Tabasco. I just juiced a whole lime and it was really good... but then, I just love lime! Elly
