Ingredients

  • 8 ears of corn shucked and cooked
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup scallions or green onions sliced
  • 3/4 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro minced
  • 1 small yellow onion very finely diced
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 3/4 Tbsp salt
  • 3/4 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/8 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper
  • Oil for cooking
  • For the Aioli:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Sriracha sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp honey

Instructions

  • Mix aioli ingredients together and store in refrigerator until ready to serve. This will allow the flavors to blend together.
  • Heat cooking oil to 350 degrees F.
  • Grill the corn on a grill (or cook using preferred method) and cut kernels from the cobs.
  • Place kernels in a food processor with the milk, eggs and onion and pulse until fairly smooth but still textured.
  • Remove to a large bowl and stir in the chopped scallions, garlic, and cilantro.
  • Stir in dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, baking powder, coriander and black pepper) into the corn mixture.
  • Scoop batter into small golf-ball sized balls and cook in oil until cooked through and deep golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Place fritters on paper towels to drain.
  • Serve with the sauce and enjoy!
