Ingredients

Fritters:

  • 2 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots, rough chopped
  • ½ cup thinly sliced scallions
  • ½ cup small diced red pepper
  • ¾ cup Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Frigo® Fresh Mozzarella
  • 6 large eggs, whisked
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • vegetable oil

Ricotta Dill Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 cup Frigo® Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
  • ½ cup Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill, or substitute 3 tablespoons dry dill
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

In a large bowl, stir together corn kernels, carrots, scallions, red peppers, ¾ cup of Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese, and shredded Frigo® Fresh Mozzarella.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and then slowly whisk in all-purpose flour, cornmeal, and spices until thoroughly combined.

Finally, stir the egg mixture into the corn mixture.

Heat a large cast iron pan with ½-inch of oil and scoop the batter into the hot oil with a ¼ cup ice cream scoop.

Working in batches, fry fritters until cooked through and golden brown on both sides, about three minutes per side, turning once. Remove and place on a paper towel-lined plate.

Make the Ricotta Dill Dipping Sauce by mixing all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the fritters garnished with the remaining Frigo® Crumbled Feta Cheese and the Ricotta Dill Dipping Sauce on the side.

Enjoy.
