Corn two ways

Why decide when you can have it all? For the ones who can’t decide, here’s sweet, summery corn in as many ways as we can fit on a plate: silky puree, warm fritter, and crispy chip. 



Corn Puree

  • 8-9 ears corn, kernels removed and blanched for 2-3 minutes, divided
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) butter
  • 2 small onions, finely diced
  • 2 1/2 cups (590 ml) blanched corn kernels
  • 2 cups (470 ml) whipping cream
  • Salt, to season

Corn Fritter

  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) milk
  • 1 cup (240 ml) corn kernels
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) salt


  • Remaining reserved corn kernels, to garnish
  • 1 scallion, greens only, to garnish
  • Blue corn chips, crumbled, to garnish


Corn Puree

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Add onions and corn kernels and sweat until the onions are translucent, two to three minutes.
  3. Add the cream and bring the mixture to a simmer. Allow to gently simmer for eight to 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy, with the texture of a thick soup. Season with salt.
  5. Keep the puree warm until needed.

Corn Fritter

  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven, bring the oil to 350° F (175° C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, egg, and milk. Whisk until just combined.
  3. Sprinkle the corn into the batter and fold in.
  4. Use a small ice cream scoop to carefully drop mounds of the batter into the hot oil and fry until golden brown and crisp, two to three minutes, turning often.
  5. Drain the fritters on paper towels.


  1. In a shallow bowl, ladle in the warm Corn Puree to a depth of about half an inch. 
  2. Arrange the fritters neatly over the top of the puree.
  3. Garnish with scallion, crushed tortilla chips and reserved corn kernels.
  4. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
