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
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.
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.
Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat until shimmering.
Add the fritter mixture 1 heaping tablespoon at a time to the pan and fry until golden brown on one side.
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.
Drain the fritters on the paper towels, and then sprinkle with finishing salt before serving.
