Succulent Corn Fritters

Corn Fritters

Corn Fritters


1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 corns)
1 tsp. paprika
1 medium egg
1/4 -1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano, grated
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. cilantro, chopped + more for garnish
1 scallion, chopped
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 dollop of sour cream for garnish
lime juice, freshly squeezed
olive or canola oil for pan frying


Combine all ingredients except for sour cream and lime juice. This will yield about 4 medium-sized corn patties.

Cover the bottom of a medium pan with oil. Heat over medium-high heat. Pan fry for about 4-5 minutes in total. Turn it once halfway through cooking using a spatula. The color should be golden brown as you see in the image.

Garnish with sour cream, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice.

Cook’s Note: the batter will be a little runny and the shapes will not be perfect. However, you will enjoy this tasty side dish.

I hope you will give this recipe a try and let me know how the corn fritters come out.

Wine Pairing Suggestions: Sauvignon Blanc or an off-dry Riesling
When in doubt, always use Champagne or sparkling wines.

Happy Cooking & Sipping!
Happy New Year!
