Sweet Corn Fritters

Sweet Summer Corn Fritters

If I could call these fritters something other corn fritters, I think the obvious name would be “fresh sweet summer fritters.”

But regardless of the name, there’s no denying that this is a happy and glorious dish.

I ate a bunch of them, one right after the other. It was all for research purposes, I swear.

Believe me when I tell you that these could become a summer favorite for anyone who tries them.

They are refreshing and comforting all at the same time. It’s almost like a salad in a fritter; I know that sounds like a crazy analogy, but. their freshness derives from the cilantro, green onions, jalapeño, lime juice and zest, and of course, the beautiful fresh sweet corn.

So get your hands on a some sweet summer corn and make them. Enjoy!
