Alfresco Friday – Corn Fritters

Corn fritters

This was one of my favourite quick healthy dishes to make a while back, but some how it slipped from my mind until recently.  It is one of those easy portable foods that can be cooked in seconds and taken on a picnic with a salad. The reason it has become forefront in my mind again is because I was looking for a vegetarian picnic idea and I remembered making this for my brother once.  Naturally I had mine with smoked salmon and goats’ cheese, but his I served with a spicy guacamole. It is also a really nice addition to a brunch menu.
