2 ears of corn
2 large jalapenos
1/3 cup whole milk
1-2 chopped scallions
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup corn meal
1/4 TSP smoked paprika
3 TBS chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for frying patties
( Editors Note )
Some olive oil or grape seed oil for roasting ( you can roast on a grill as well if you don’t want to use a stove )
Roast your corn and jalapenos, you can put a bit of oil in a pan and roast them up in a skillet , or toss them on the grill , just be sure to oil your veggies before hand.
Once roasted deseed your jalapenos and dice up
Cut your corn off the cob
Combine corn, jalapenos, scallions and cilantro
In a separate bowl combine milk and eggs
Combine dry ingredients together
Add the wet ingredients to the veggies and toss
Add your dry mixture and combine well
In a skillet put a bit of oil and heat up, not a lot, just enough to coat the bottom of the pan , add the batter and fry up, you WILL NEED TO USE A FRY COVER , the kernels will pop occasionally and this can cause burns, don’t use a sauce pan lid , as condensation will occur and the water will drip into the hot oil, a mesh fry lid will do.
Use caution when frying.
Fry on both sides
Drain on a paper towel and serve with honey ( We use honey with hot sauce added to it )
