A great easy dish for all to enjoy.


  • 1 corn on the cob
  • 105g crab
  • 25g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 20g basil, chopped
  • 2 tbsps plain flour
  • 2 tbsps cornmeal
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 60ml vegetable oil for frying
  • finishing salt such as Maldon or Fleur de Sel


Step 1

Use a sharp knife to cut the corn off the cob into a bowl. When you're done cutting the kernels, use the back side of the knife to scrape any remaining bits of corn and juice off the cob and into the bowl.

Step 2

Add the crab, cheddar, basil, flour, cornmeal, egg and black pepper into a bowl and stir well to combine. Prepare a paper towel lined wire rack.

Step 3

Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat until shimmering.

Step 4

Add the fritter mixture 1 heaping tablespoon at a time to the pan and fry until golden brown on one side.

Step 5

Gently flip the fritter over with a spatula and give it a light press to flatten it out, and then fry until the other side becomes golden brown and crisp.

Step 6

Drain the fritters on the paper towels, and then sprinkle with finishing salt before serving.
