Thai Lobster Corn Fritters

IMG_2961 I had the most beautiful fresh corn on the cob and several cooked lobster tails. So what shall I make?  How about Thai Seasoned Lobster and Corn fritters.

We are going to pretty much wing this, so hold on for a pretty funky ride:

IMG_2956Thai Lobster Corn Fritters

  • 2 large egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or clabber milk)
  • 1 small nob of ginger finely grated
  • 2 garlic cloves finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Several teaspoons of chopped cilantro
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 medium ears of fresh corn – cut from the cob
  • 2 cooked lobster tails, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 large scallion

In a large bowl combine slightly beaten eggs with the next 8 ingredients Mix well. Add flour, baking soda and baking powder. Finally add corn, lobster and scallion. Mix well to incorporate all the dry ingredients.

Using a tablespoon place a dollop of the mixture in a preheated frying pan that has a small amount of oil on the bottom.  Cook on medium heat until golden brown, flip and do the same on the other side.  Serve hot with the dipping sauce.  But they are great cold from the frig as well.

  • 1/2 cup fruit juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallion
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoon of vinegar or water

Mix all ingredients and taste for seasoning. Set aside for the flavors to meld.

  • 4-6 leaves of cabbage sliced very thin
  • 1 medium carrot peeled and shredded
  • 1 small green pepper seeded and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or white vinegar

Mix soy sauce, honey, sesame oil and seeds along with vinegar in a small bowl.  Combine cabbage, carrot and green pepper and toss with wet ingredients. Separate into serving sized bowls.

    • It has a lot of ingredients but they all work together to make a very nice meal. Adding the salad makes it pretty complete. Thanks for your comment. Nancy
