Corn and Zucchini Fritters

Brought home another 28 cobs of corn and 3 zucchinis.  It's time for something other than corn on the cob and chocolate zucchini loaf.  So tonight, corn and zucchini fritters.

Corn and Zucchini Fritters
2 cups sweet corn 
1 cup grated zucchini
1 cayenne pepper finely chopped
1 tbsp chopped green onion
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
3 tbsp oil

Toss together corn, zucchini, pepper, green onion, spices, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Lightly beat two eggs.
Mix into the corn mixture.
Add flour and stir to mix evenly.
Heat oil in pan.
Scoop 1 to 2 tbsp of corn mix into hot oil, like a pancake.
Fry both sides until golden.
Place in hot oven until ready to serve.

Makes 10 to 12 fritters

The kids would prefer corn on the cob - again and again.  But Darryl and I enjoyed these fritters as a nice change.  We also tried them with a little apple butter spread on top.  The contrast between the savory fritter and the sweet apple butter was great.  I've read some people even pour a little maple syrup over their corn fritters.
