This has probably been my requested recipe so far! After I posted this on instagram I had so many requests to share this recipe. I was inspired to make this dish by my fellow blogger friend Beth over at Seersucker and Saddles. She is always posting yummy recipes. I used fresh corn for the fritters but if you can’t find that I think frozen or canned corn would work fine. This was such a light and tasty dinner. I will totally make it again! If you make this ahead of time wait to add the avocado to the salad right before serving. The spicy mayo on top of the fritters really adds some awesome flavor. I think this is a dish that will be even better in the Summer with super fresh produce. If you don’t like crab I think this could also be really good with sauteed shrimp. Enjoy!
C O R N F R I T T E R S + L U M B C R A B S A L A D
4 ears corn shucked
1/2 red onion diced finely
1/2 green bell pepper diced finely
2 tablespoons parsley
3/4 cup all purpose flour
salt and pepper
Mix all together in a bowl. Shape into patties and then put in the fridge to sit about 20-30 minutes to firm up. In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil. Lightly fry the corn fritters about 3-4 minutes per side or until crispy.
Lump Crab Salad
1 8oz jar lump crab meat
1 jalapeno finely diced
handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
3-4 green onions sliced thinly
1 avocado diced
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon hot sauce (I used Texas Pete)
2 tablespoons parsley
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all together in a bowl.
To Assemble. Toss Arugula with your favorite dressing or just use olive oil and lemon juice. We used Garlic Expressions dressing. Then layer two corn fritter on top and place a scoop of spicy may0 (just mayo + siriracha mixed together). Then top with the fresh lump crab salad.
I wanted to share what I have ordered so far from the Shopbop sale since it is still going on! When they arrive I will try them on and do a post on instastories.
I ordered this in white which sold out pretty fast but it is still in stock in this pretty periwinkle color.
These are my favorite tees. I just love the fit. I bought one last year during this sale and have been obsessed ever since.
This is either gonna be super cute or a bad fit but I have wanted a long maxi dress and I love the colors. Fingers crossed it works.
I always love LeSpecs. I like the larger size of these. They also come in black.
