Fritters are my favorite Caymanian side dish. Β In February, my friend Alejandro shared his fried barracuda and fritter recipe on Deep Dish. Β Today’s fritters are slightly different, incorporating creamed corn into the dough before it gets fried. Β They’re delicious, but they may be a little boring for the more adventurous among you. Don’t be afraid to get a little wild with your seasoning.

  17. looks tasty always fun to learn about Cayman from you, how was the pasta ?

  18. I really hope you have a good sense to open your own resturant.. when I was out there, nothing ever looked as good as you make I somehow think you would be cornering the market … I love the food, but you ace everything!

  19. yummy looking corn fritters I haven't used cream of corn for fritters before I usually use only for soup
    these look crispy and delicious
    the last picture looks lovely

  20. Mmmmm! Corn fritters are my favorite. I've never made them at home before. Have you ever added minced jalapeno or green chiles to them? Yum!

  21. Did you say, Corn-Holy-os, lol. Sorry I couldn't help myself. You've been one busy lady while I was visiting my floating friend, he he, you guessed right. These do sound good, along with that cool bar that hands out shots, I think I'm living in the wrong place.

  22. I'm a softie for anything deep fried and corn is perfect for summer! Love it!

  23. I don't think they're boring! Hello – they're fried!! Also I can imagine tons of fab dips that would go with this.

  24. Thank you for transporting me to paradise here. Some heat, sunshine, these cornballs – love the creamed corn in there. Barracuda, spice, I love how you live on the wild side.

  25. I love these. I won't be bored, I promise you, because I'm gonna dip them in golden syrup.

  26. Another great corn recipe. These remind me of my moms! She actually adds some spring onion and a bit of fresh chili peppers.

  27. I don't think fried barracuda fritters would be boring at all- I think it is quite creative. I probably should not admit that I did not realize that barracuda were a eating fish. Very cool.


  28. I like your blog and the font you used. The fritters look delish ! Great one

  29. I haven't made fritters in forever!! These look great and easy to make. Thanks πŸ™‚

  41. I can pop fritters all day long… love them!!

  42. These sound wonderful! Love fritters!

  43. We just got some corn in our CSA today, so I know I'll be frying up some of these babies soon!

  44. Ooh, awesome! The recipe is so simple and yet, delish! I'd love to add spices to it, too. I love that you only fry in about a cup of oil. I'm going to do that since I hate filling up a pot with oil and then I don't know what to do with it all after I'm done, haha.

  45. Boy these look so good! I have never made fritters and I know I would make Him a Happy Man.

  46. I love corn fritters, they are so good and have such a “comfort food” appeal. What a great recipe!

  47. These look really gorgeous! I am liking the suggestions of dipping sauce and cold beer. Parsley Sage, the little shell in the picture makes me think of the seaside. I am imagining a scorching hot day, and a very happy me, strolling along the beach, with a carton of these bad boys.

  48. Looks interesting, sweet, salty and crunchy. Whats missing is a cold beer on the side, at least one

  49. Deep fried stuff is always awesome and these look very very tasty, Your yeild says 24 but I might just get 2 πŸ™‚
    Thanks and wish I could taste em'

  50. Woo hoo! These sound and look sinfully delicious! I love corn fritter but have never used creamed corn. This is on my must try list!

  51. Oh, how I love fritters! But I've never actually made them myself. The only time I fried something (years and years ago) it turned into a mushy, yucky mess. Maybe though… this has me motivated! Love the corn! Buzzn' ya back!!

  52. Corn fritters sound delicious right now-especially when I am sitting in front of your picture of them! Thanks for the recipe-yum!

  53. I love fritters and these look amazing! I make a corn bread with cream corn and it's so moist…so I bet these are amazing! Great pictures as well! The colors are amazing…I have SO buzzed this one!

  54. Oh I haven't made these in forever! I wish it were a little cooler indoors so I could get up the motivation to fry. Will be revisiting this for sure!

  55. LOL @ getting wild with the seasonings – that's my favorite thing to do. Well, favorite food-thing to do. πŸ˜‰

  56. Corn fritters sound divine! I'll be trying out this recipe over the weekend!

  57. Isn't this recipe is about being creative and making something unique. Love it and just adore your great way of using corn to make this fried I would say as fritters. Nice one and should try it out.

  58. This looks fabulous. I do love love love corn!!! YUM!

  60. corn fritters! i didn't know these existed until i worked at a bbq joint last winter! yours look way better then the ones we had πŸ™‚

  61. Why is it that food from the deep fryer always tastes so good when it is so bad for you? I couldn't resist these if they were served to me. I probably am a natural for the island lifestyle :-). I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  62. These look so delicious!! πŸ™‚

  63. omg, they look divine!!! i would totally make them with a spicy chili dip- like cornbread and chili only better!

  64. Oooo! I like! I like the idea of a spicy sauce, too.

  65. I'm thinking a spicy dipping sauce on the side! Yum!


  66. I love fritters too…I meant…who doesn't!!! Those look fingerlicking!
