Corn Sweet Corn

Corn is delicious boiled, grilled and roasted! But year after year I feel like I have seen and tasted the same old corn. We have forgotten about how versatile corn really is. This perfect for summer vegetable is a great option for a variety of gluten free sweet and savory refreshing dishes.

You can make delicious latin majarete pudding, corn pancakes for a summery breakfast, the old time favorite cornbread, a refreshing corn relish or a beautiful casserole and so much more!
So to breakout of the same old grilled/boiled corn routine I have prepare this simple and delicious corn fritters recipe that are going to make you keep trying more corn recipes as soon as possible!

1 Corn cob
1/2 Medium white onion, chopped
1/4 Bunchof cilantro leaves
1/3 Cup of Corn Meal
1 Yolk
The egg white of one egg
1/8 Teaspoon of baking powder

Place the corn knob vertically (thicker side down) over a cutting board and with the help of a knife cut the kernels off the corn.
In a food processor put the kernels, onion, cilantro, corn meal, yolk, baking powder, salt and pepper and pulse 2 to 3 times until everything is mixed well. Transfer into a bowl.
In another bowl whip the egg white by hand until you get soft peaks.
Now slowly mix together the whipped egg white with the corn. Mix by making a folding motion.
Heat up a small non stick pan on low heat with small amount of olive oil. Pour a medium ladle of the mix on the pan and let cook for 1 minute. Carefully turn and repeat on the uncooked side.

You can serve this delicious fritters with an avocado salad. Just take and avocado and 1/2 white onion and dice them. You can use cilantro too if wanted. Season with a little bit of lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix.

Your family and friends are going to love this tropical and delicious corn dish!
