Herbed Sweet Corn Fritters

Sweet corn fritters with fresh herbs

It’s that time of year for casual outdoor lunches with friends and picnics at the beach.  This recipe is super versatile making a light meal with the fritters served hot along side a salad with sides of chilli dressing, sour cream or guacamole to heap on top.  Made small the fritters also make great finger food served cold as part of a picnic.

When fresh corn cobs are available cut the corn from the cob with a sharp knife.  The fritters are equally good when made with  drained  and rinsed canned corn kernels.

These herbed sweet corn fritters are bested topped with a cream made from sour cream, mayonnaise and sweet chilli sauce, a chunky salsa or cooling guacamole.
