Green Pea Fritters

Conquer homemade brunch with Joy Wilson’s book, Over Easy, with plenty of ideas for eggs, bacon or bread. 

These are not maple syrup-doused pancakes. They’re the savory sort and super versatile. You can substitute half of the peas for sweet corn, if you like, and try serving with poached or fried eggs for a simple breakfast. I love to top the warm fritters with smoked salmon, a dollop of sour cream, and fresh herbs, too.

6 servings

  1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the peas and cook for 4 minutes, until warmed through. Drain and transfer to the bowl of a food processor fitted with the regular chopping blade. Add the garlic, parsley, mint, chives, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Pulse for 30 seconds to just combine.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, eggs, and lemon juice. Add the sour cream mixture to the food processor and pulse for about 2 minutes, until the mixture is well combined and the peas are broken down. Transfer to a medium bowl, stir in the flour, and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. On a griddle or in a nonstick skillet set over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon clarified butter. Scoop ¼-cup portions of the batter onto the griddle and flatten slightly. Cook for about 2 minutes, until golden brown. Flip and cook for 2 more minutes, until golden on the second side. Transfer to a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more clarified butter to the pan as necessary. Serve warm.
