Zucchini Corn Fritters

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup Stahlbush Farms Super Sweet Corn (130 grams)
  • 1 Medium Zucchini, shredded (about 1 ½ cups or 210 grams shredded before draining
    out moisture)
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped (about ½ cup or 58 grams)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (12 grams)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour (62 grams)

  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch (8 grams)
  • ½-1 tsp salt (4-6 grams, add salt to preference)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper (.5 gram)
  • ¼ tsp paprika (1 gram)
  • 1-2 Tbsp oil (for pan-frying fritters, optional)
INSTRUCTIONS
  • First, fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add in the frozen corn and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft. Strain the corn and dry off completely before using.

  • While the corn is cooking, shred the zucchini and chop the scallion and garlic. It is best to shred the zucchini in large pieces vs. small for the best texture. Once shredded, use your hands to squeeze out as much moisture as possible from the zucchini. It’s okay if some moisture is left, but less moisture will lead to crispier fritters.
  • Next, add the cooked corn, shredded zucchini, chopped scallion, and minced garlic to a bowl and mix together. Then, add in the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, salt, black pepper, and paprika.
  • Mix together until the flour and cornstarch begins to thicken and becomes a thick batter holding the ingredients together. It may take a few minutes of mixing for this to happen.
  • Then, add the mixture to the fridge and let sit for 10 minutes to thicken further.

  • Add 1 Tbsp of oil to a non-stick pan or cast iron skillet and turn on the heat. Once the oil is hot, scoop out the fritter dough using a cookie scoop and add to the pan of hot oil. Cook each fritter for 3-5 minutes until browned and crispy before flipping. It’s best to cook 2-3 fritters at a time for best results. It’s also really important not to flip the fritters too early or they may fall apart.
  • Once the fritters have cooked on both sides, remove from the pan and add to a plate covered in paper towels to soak up any excess oil. Then, serve warm with your choice of toppings. Enjoy!
