Ingredient Notes and Shopping Tips
: I used canned corn. To get 3 cups you'll need about 2 cans. If corn is in season, you can certainly use fresh corn instead. Frozen works great as well.
: You can leave this out or replace it with fresh parsley if you're not a fan.
: Remove the seeds and membranes if you prefer a milder flavor.
: Use fresh lime juice for the best results.
: I used whole milk.
: Use a neutral oil like canola or vegetable oil. Avoid olive oil since it has a low smoke point.
Tips and Tricks
: Use an ice cream scoop for round, evenly sized fritters. I also like to use an egg mold to keep them perfectly round.
Use a hot pan
: Put fritters into the pan only once the oil is hot. Never put into a cold pan.
Don't Cook Over High Heat
: Cook over medium heat. High heat may burn the outside while leaving the inside raw. Higher heat also increases the risk of oil splatter.
Press Press Press
: Press down on each side when frying for an ultra-crispy fritter. (Just like you do when making hashbrowns.)
: Use your oven set to the keep warm function to keep warm while you finish frying the rest of the batch. This helps keep them nice and toasty until you're ready to serve.
