2 ears Florida sweet corn, kernels removed
4 ounces ricotta cheese
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped fine
1/3 cup self-rising unbleached or whole wheat flour
Oil for deep frying (neutral oil such as vegetable)
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
Add oil to a large (and heavy) pot and preheat on medium-high. Do not overfill, as oil will rise during frying. The oil temperature should reach 365 degrees for proper frying.
In a medium bowl, combine the corn, cilantro, ricotta, eggs, flour and a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Allow batter to rest for 5 minutes before frying. Carefully add spoonfuls of the batter to the oil and fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until cooked all the way through. When done, remove from oil with slotted spoon, allowing any excess oil to drain. Place on paper towel-lined pan to cool. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste. Serve with low-fat sour cream if desired.
