Corn Fritter

Corn Fritter

I have given 2 recipes, the first is more of a batter,  it is used to dip larger pieces of seafood or vegetables, the second one is used for fritters.  You can add a variety of Vegetables, fruits or even meats to make your fritters.  The sky is the limit.  I have also listed 2 different cooking methods, Deep frying and pan frying.  Feel free to use either method, the results are both delicious.
