  • 3 cups frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup Quaker yellow cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 green onion finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweet red pepper , finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup fine chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Heat a heavy skillet on medium to medium high heat
  • Add the corn and grill, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes until slightly browned
  • Combine other ingredients in a bowl and mix with a spatula
  • Add to the bowl the grilled corn and combine until all the corn is coated with the batter
  • Wipe out the skillet and add vegetable oil to cover the bottom, keeping on medium heat
  • With a 1/3 cup measure, add the corn batter to the hot oil, then flatten to make a patty with the bottom of the measure.
  • Fry for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes until browned, turn and fry for another 2 to 2 1/2 minutes
  • Place patties on a plate with paper towels to soak up excess oil
  • Serve warm, or cool and re-heat in microwave.


Fresh corn on the cob would work too, just make sure it is grilled to reduce the amount of water that it contains.
