Sweet corn kernels take two different forms in these crispy cakes. Half the corn is pureed into the batter; the other half is sauteed with shiitake and onion to give the fritters crunch.

Recipe Ingredients for Corn and Shiitake Fritters

2 cup Shiitake Mushrooms
1.5 cup Corn, Sweet, Yellow
3 tbsp Egg Whites
0.25 cup Milk, Reduced Fat, Fluid, 2% Milkfat
0.25 cup, chopped Onions
0.75 cup Wheat Flour, White, All-purpose, Enriched, Bleached
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1.5 tsp Salt, Table
0.5 tsp Pepper, Black

Recipe Directions for Corn and Shiitake Fritters

  1. Cut the corn kernels from the cobs and transfer half of them to a blender. Using the dull side of a knife, scrape the pulp from the cobs into the blender. Add the egg and milk; puree until smooth.

  2. In a very large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the shiitake and onion and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining corn and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Scrape the mixture onto a plate and freeze just until no longer hot, about 5 minutes.

  3. In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Stir in the puree, then fold in the corn kernels, shiitake and onion.

  4. Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining 1/2 cup of oil. When it is hot, add eight level 1/4-cup mounds of batter to the skillet and spread them to a 1/2-inch thickness. Fry over moderately high heat, turning once, until the fritters are golden and crusty, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve warm.
